KATO® CoilThread® Tangless® are a unique range of inserts that can reduce the time of the installation process up to 40% when compared to conventional inserts. They offer the following benefits:

  • Size/Weight – Being smaller than similar fastening solutions, means the inserts can be a space saving and weight reducing solution for your application.
  • Debris Free – No tang to break off, retrieve, lose or count. The Tangless® design saves time and reduces risk of foreign objects remaining within a critical application.
  • Time Saving – Bi-directional design eliminates the need to orientate the inserts for installation significantly reducing installation and inspection time. KATO® Strip Feed packaging also speeds installation time.
  • Reusable – The quick and easy removal means no damaged threads and this non-destructive removal prevents damage to expensive machined parts or castings.
