      A:  I had success with a 9/32 inch through hole with a .03 chamfer on the front face and a chamfer on the back face to the full 5/16 diameter on the back face to prevent breakout. This was in 1/2 inch five ply birch.

          A:  The notched portion can be used to screw the insert into the wood. This would be on the outside.

              Worked well for me
              I did something similar to Steelmetro's idea. 1.25" 10/32 bolt, put 2 - 10/32 nuts on the bolt, put the bolt completely through the insert, tighten the 2 nuts on top of the insert. Slowly drive by hand into the recommended 9/32" hole. When fully inserted, back off the top jam nut and screw the bolt out. I put the non-slot end in first. This worked perfectly in soft pine. I can imagine it is much more difficult in hard woods and I can see why the insert failed when driven by a flat screwdriver. All these are holding is a tub access panel. Hope this helps and good luck.

                  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.

                    Threads were not clean and the bolts would bind. Bought same size from a different HW store and has no issues.

                    Quality is suspect
                    I bought these and the EZ lok threaded inserts and my hex screws go through those like butter. These Everbilt ones are thinner, flimsier, and the hex screws can sometimes get stuck (the threading doesn't seem all that strong or consistent). Pay up for the EZ lock version and you'll see.

                      Unless you are screwing these inserts into very soft wood, they are likely to break at the slot. Even Baltic Birch plywood is too hard. I even tried using a threaded bolt and jam nut to drive them in, not using the slot at all, but they would just back out when I unscrewed the bolt. The brass is just too soft.
