Ignore the other guy's the 2 star review. The slot in this insert is to cut threads....not to put a screw driver in. The slotted side goes in the hole first. Then take your bolt....put two nuts on it, back the insert up to the nuts.....screw it in....back off the nuts....and unscrew the bolt. You're done. You may also want to put a dab of super glue or epoxy on the insert before installing it. If you have a drill press....even easier. But turn the chuck by hand...DON"T turn the press on.

Try one before you use in real work. The product is very soft. So soft, using the flat screw driver to drive the Inset Nut even into the softest wood will definitely clip-off the head. I had better success using a machine screw and tighten the Insert Nut into a pre-drilled hole, and then remove the machine screw. Even then, I had to drive the Insert Nut in reverse (the end with flat screwdriver head goes into the pre-drilled hole), else, the head just jams on to the threads of machine screw. May be, I might be using it wrong, nevertheless, I would strongly recommend trying the nut on a scrap piece of similar wood before trying it on your project, this way you get a better idea on how soft the brass nut is. ITS NOT brass-plated, IT IS brass. Or may be, its is a brass nut with brass-plating :-)
