Application Sometimes old T-Nuts become damaged with use or are lost when furniture is moved. Damaged or lost T-Nuts need to be replaced. T-Nuts provide the nut base into which the hanger bolt of a furniture leg may be screwed. The hanger bolt screws into the T-Nut and extends up into a cavity predrilled to sufficient width and depth to contain the screwed in hanger bolt. A Note about Size The size of the hanger bolt determinies what the size the T-Nut needs to be. These T-Nuts fit the Metric Siz M8 Hanger Bolts. It is important to select the proper size T-Nuts for your hanger bolts. Installing the T-Nut
- Select the location for the T-Nut installation
- If a cavity is already present for the screwed in hanger bolt, all that needs to be done is to tap the T-Nut into the proper location with the sleeve of the T-Nut extending into the already present cavity.
- If no cavity is present for the sleeve of the T-Nut and the hanger bolt, a new cavity will need to be drilled at the proper location. After the cavity is drilled, then the T-Nut may be tapped into the installation site.
- The furniture leg is then securely screwed into the T-Nut and the installation is complete.
