GripTide™ Inserts for Lawn Mowers

Lawn Mower

Problem:

Brass inserts used to attach a plastic cover to the steel deck of a lawn mower was not passing anti-rotation and pull-out testing needed by our customer.

Solution:

ITW’s Shakeproof™ thread was used as an alternative to the adhesive patch.

To address the cross threading issue, a MAThread® was added to the part.

Impact:

Customer switched to ITW’s GripTide™ insert and the parts significantly outperformed brass inserts to the point that graded bolts would fail before the GripTide™ insert would fail.
