Drill a hole, insert one of these things, put a tool in it like a rivet gun, and pull the trigger. It installs a nut in places where you can't get behind to put a real nut.

They are a huge pain in the ass. Chryslers and Jeeps use them alot. I HATE THOSE THINGS! New Jeep parts do not come with them and you gotta explain to the parts guy what you need.

Nutserts or Riv-nuts.

Don't Riv nuts use a tool to compress them and the nutserts use a bolt and nut to squeeze down then remove. or maybe it's just a brand name thing - I dunno.

You young uns just wait 'till you get a chance to install a roof rack on a mini-van and one of those fucks up 1/2 way in, and it's a waiter.

You will wish you never heard of a nutsert! You will wish you had not gotten out of bed that day.
