Time-Sert

Time-Sert is a thread repair system that uses a thin-walled solid bushing insert made out of carbon or stainless steel. The unique style of this insert allows for easy installation, using a flanged top for positive placement in the tapped hole and is self-locking. On installation, the bottom internal threads of the insert are cold rolled to expand the mating external thread into the parent material, locking the insert in place.

Time-Sert inserts come in a variety of lengths and sizes along with having special application kits, head bolt kits, spark plug kits and manufacturer kits.
