Jergens Expands Keylocking Thread Repair Inserts Line

Jergens, Inc., Cleveland, Ohio, has expanded its thread repair insert line with several models meeting MS (Military Standards) and NAS (National Aerospace Standards) quality requirements. Jergens' expanded offering meets MS51830, MS51831, MS51832, NAS1394, and NAS1395 military and aerospace specifications.

Threaded inserts are general fasteners that can be used for all holding applications. The product can be used for cranes and rigging and any other fleet equipment. The thread repair inserts are ideal for every area of crane repair/maintenance, as well as for securing the load, according to the company.

All Jergens keylocking inserts are easy to install with standard drills and taps. “Keys” mechanically lock the insert into the base material, holding better than spring or locking patches, which do not mechanically lock the insert. The company offers a wide variety of styles, including thinwall, heavy duty, extra heavy duty, and solid inserts in both stainless steel and carbon steel materials.

Founded in 1942, Jergens has grown into four separate operating divisions providing engineered solutions and products. For more information visit
