After I broke three of these things, brass furniture insert nuts sized 10/24, I got the idea to go look and see if anyone made them out of stainless or something harder than this cheap, soft brass. They do online, but Lowe's only carries the brass ones. I was being super gentle, had the correct size hole drilled, using the best fitting flat head screw driver possible and SNAP! Three out of four neck bolt inserts broken below the surface of the wood. Great. That's just what I wanted to happen. I was a bit ticked off honestly and thought "there's no way that should happen that easily, how does ANYONE use these things?!" Off to YouTube I go and low and behold, user error on my part. First time that ever happened Now, because of this video I realized my blunder and use this, threaded in "backwards"... Which isn't backwards at all... instead to install these little buggers. Man, what a difference it makes when you actually use something like it was designed to work.
