Keep-Nut by Specialinsert is a revolutionary press-in anchor insert commonly used for a number of applications including undermount sink installation, ventilated facades, cladding and furniture.These small inserts are designed to install into a wide range of surfaces including Granite, Marble, Quartz, Solid Surface, HPL, Glass, Fiber Cement and other compact materials. 

The inserts small size also lends itself to be installed into extremely thin surfaces while also being extremely strong. In addition the Keep-Nut is manufactured in stainless steel and it’s made of a threaded bush with a set of elastic crowns and a plastic ring for holding the complete set of parts together.

Advantages:
  • Simple Hole Preparation
  • Quick Installation
  • No need for resins or adhesives
  • Radial force is produced only while the insert is under tensile load. The crowns spread the load into the parent material, allowing large loads to be carried
  • Thread stops before end of insert, avoiding extraction as a result of the use of an excessively long bolt
