T-nut/ Tee Nut

T-nutT nut, or tee nut (also known as a blind nut, which can however also refer to a rivet nut or an insert nut) is a type of nut used to fasten a wood, particle or composite materials workpiece, leaving a flush surface.

When you need to fasten wood, particle or composite materials together and wish to maintain a flush surface, a Tee Nut might be the fastener you need. It has a long, thin body with a flange on one end, giving it the appearance of a “T” when viewed in profile. The flanges of T-nuts often feature serrations on the prongs that are designed to dig into a wooden work piece as the bolt is tightened from the opposite side, providing better retention.

Tee Nut Styles

Tee nuts for wood are available in two styles, 3-Prong and 4-Prong. The 3-Prong Tee Nuts are used for fastening harder materials, such as metal to wood, particle board or plastic, as they minimize splitting of the mating surface. 4-Prong Tee Nuts are generally used for hard or soft woods.
