Default Time-sert thread repair


Came across this on YouTube. It is an interesting take on thread repair and features easy removal though I'm not too sure how the locking effect would work in plastic. I'm pretty sure that the removal using an Ezy-out would be tricky in plastic as well.

Has anyone tried using the self-tapping inserts as shown in plastic?

The normal link works fine in Tapatalk but on my computer it needs the full embed code to show a preview.

I use these, they seem to be better suited for plastic:

Unless it's a rare part, why not just replace the plastic piece? Or if you're screwing it frequently, be gentle. Plastic threads will hold up as long as you don't overtighten the screw and use proper length, and provided it's a decent grade plastic to begin with.
