It measures 0.56-inch long.

if it says 1/4in...does that mean the insert is 1/4in or it is for a 1/4in screw?

The insert screws into a 3/8" hole in the wood and then you screw a 1/4" - 20 machine screw into it

What. size hole is required for this insert ?

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.

Bad Quality
I purchased these to fix some chair legs. They are soft and brittle and the head broke when using a screwdriver with very little force. I was able to get a few in with some finesse and they cracked internally. I do not reccomend purchasing

Educate first...
Before installing it is highly recommended that you watch a You Tube video on how to properly install a wood insert nut.

Broke Immediately
As soon as i tried to screw these into a predrilled hole, the whole insert snapped in half. Luckilly I could pull what was left with pliers without damaging the work peice.

Breaks Easily and Performs Poorly
I am using these inserts as part of a built-in desk to allow the legs to be removed if needed to clean/change the room carpeting. These were inserted into the underside which was poplar board. I drilled the holes wide enough for the barrels to fit but leaving room for the threads to bite into the wood. Three out of four of these inserts cracked when I tried to screw them into their holes: this happened quickly and I was barely putting any force on them. It seems that these inserts cannot take the force to get them to screw in, unless you drill out so much material that the corkscrew part has very little to bite into the wood. Worse still is that where these cracked, they left burrs and other material that made screwing in the bolts very difficult to do. I am very disappointed in these and certainly do not recommend these.

Not the best.
The few of these that I bought had issues when I screwed in 1/4 - 20 eyebolts. I had to run the bolts in several times before it was ok. Also I purchased several more at a big competetors store. Different brand, still solid brass, but about half the price AND they were smooth operating from the beginning.

I don't like these. It's difficult to find a screwdriver big enough to fit where it needs to screw in. Because of that, the little rim on the top broke off on a few different occasions. Now looking for the ones that screw in with the hex key.

The reviewer who said the screwdriver slots break easily is using it wrong. There are no screwdriver slots. The slots are meant to help cut the wood as they are driven in. use a 1/4" all thread and two nuts to secure the insert and drive it in that way.

There should be a small guide shoulder to help start them in straight. There is no instructions as to hole dimension. The metal is brital and the screwdriver slots easily break.
