Chair Fastener

Anyone know what this metal fastener is called,
so I can buy some for repairs?

These were chairs made in Malaysia.

Tx Shadeladie:

When I go to it, it says to insert a URL,
but I want to insert a .jpg that is on my harddrive.

Fastener

Are these fasteners threaded on the inside?

Fasteners

OK, Tolyn, got it. I believe a threaded insert would work. Coarse threads on the outside to grip the wood and regular threads on the inside to accept a threaded male faster. Here are examples:

Hope this helps.

Looks to me like a pin or bold was supposed to go through the broken end though. Might lose quite a bit of strength depending how it's used.

Yes, it is broken on the end,
that is held by a pin.

I still don't know what to call it,
so I can order some.

this is as close as I could get. It is called an threaded aluminum insert nut. The site mentioned in the credit will sell you 100,000 of them to you as a minimum At least you know they are out there. Maybe Rockler's or Grainger's
