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 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.
