These specialized insert nuts are designed for use with drywall-covered studs. Installed, they not only create a stable mounting location for heavy objects, but also act as a support to keep attachments from crushing the drywall. Made from stainless steel, the nut is tapped for a machine bolt (see chart for thread sizes) so you can reliably remove and reinstall objects as often as needed.

You install the nuts by boring a recess for the cylindrical head in the drywall, followed by a pilot hole in the stud for the 1" long lug screw. They can be driven into place with a screwdriver or insert nut driver (not included). The 5/8" diameter drywall nut has a cylindrical head with a thickness of either 1/2" or 5/8" to suit the most common thicknesses of drywall.

A drywall nut with a smaller 1/2" diameter head is also available so that the head can be hidden even if it is placed close to the edge of the object being fastened to the wall.

Made in Canada. Patented.

* The shear load capacity refers to a weight hanging close to the wall, such as a large painting or other heavy, flat object. Tension load capacity refers to the amount of force required to pull a drywall nut out of a wall, whether from a direct pull or leverage from a shelf or other projecting object.
