People, the slots are not for a screw driver!
So many reviews mention breaking with a screw driver...that's not what the slot is for! And that’s why so many of you are breaking your insert. There's a tool you can use, or simply use a bolt with a nut to drive in the insert. I prefer the slots down so the finished end looks better.

    Really easy to break
    The design is flawed. When you tried to screw it into the wood. It can break. Then you have a hard time to get it out.

      No instructions but works well.
      I broke the first one when I tried to use the notches as a screwdriver slot. I wound up using a quarter inch screw to drive the inserts into a 5/16 inch hole.

        People complaining about breaking these clearly did zero research. These work fine. Just put two nuts side by side on a 1/4 inch-20 thread pitch screw and leave enough screw past them to screw into the insert. That’ll drive the insert in without breaking anything. The slots are NOT for a flathead. These arent the best quality but do the job just fine

          They break very easily
          They’re slotted to accept a standard screwdriver. The end snapped off the first 4 of them I tried, and yes I pre-drilled the hole to the correct diameter. I applied very little torque (like finger tight) and the end where it’s slotted snapped.
            Good brass specialty piece
            It was as described, and stood up to the torque we had to put on it to get it screwed into the wood dowel.

            Worked well so far - could use a minor tweak
            was hard to get started in the hole. Make the first thread start with a smaller radius and gradually go to full rdius by the first turn or so. Also I would have preferred a longer insert nut, but none were available.

            served my needs perfectly but you need to know how to insert into its hole or you will ruin the insert.
              Insert broke as I was trying to screw it into...
              Insert broke as I was trying to screw it into the wood. The slot for the screw driver creates a weak section in the insert that sees all the loading when you are applying torque to screw it into the wood. I switched to inserts that had an allen head drive which installed without issue.
