A: We use these to attach the seat cover for our golf carts. We use 3/8 inch - 16 x 1/2 inch steel hex caps screws.
A: Everbilt 1/4 in.-20 Zinc Plated Tee Nut (4-Pack) would require screws with minimum length of 1/2 in.
A: I have used them and they work great. Just make sure there is enough surrounding wood to keep the prongs from splitting the workpiece.
A: For the Everbilt 1/4 in.-20 Zinc Plated Tee Nut (4-Pack), the recommended use is with soft wood, plastic, or particle board.
A: I use them mainly for making jigs with plywood. IMO, Threaded inserts would be better for hardwoods, especially when occasional disassembly is required.
A: I’d suggest pre drilling to prevent splitting
A: We would not recommend using this to mount a panel. A drywall anchor and a screw would be safe to use for the application.
A: If you can get this tee on the inside of the drywall, yes this will work for light loads. I would never install this on the face of drywall, it would not hold well
A: No they are for furniture legs.
A: 5/16" hole
A: You will need a 5/16” pilot hole.
A: Good question!... I always just 'find the closest drill' by eye balling these to my drill set. Just measured a couple of these with calipers and I consistently got .292" diameter of the barrel. So it depends on how snug of an initial fit you desire. For soft wood with a snug fit you could use 9/32" (.2812") drill and tap them in with your hammer. If you desire clearance you could use 19/64" (.2969") drill or even a 5/16" (.3125") drill.
