A tee nut, also known as a T-nut or tee nut insert, is a type of threaded fastener used to create a threaded hole in wood, composite materials, or other soft materials. It is designed to be inserted into a pre-drilled hole and provides a secure and threaded anchor point for bolts or screws. Tee nuts are often used in furniture assembly, cabinetry, and other woodworking applications.
Tee nuts are commonly used in applications where a strong threaded anchor point is needed in wood or similar materials. They are especially useful for situations where frequent disassembly and reassembly are required, such as in furniture or fixtures. Tee nuts provide a threaded connection without the need for complex woodworking joinery or the risk of stripping threads in softer materials.
