Thread: Anyone have “nutsert” tool for teraflex tailgate table?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone have “nutsert” tool for teraflex tailgate table?

    Is there any chance that someone has a “nutsert” tool left over from installing a teraflex tailgate table? I ordered one and it came without the tool, and the vendor I bought from has been less than helpful. Thought it was worth seeing if anyone here had installed one or had any ideas how to get the nuts to expand without it..

    Someone here might, I think I have seen people with those tables.

    Worst case, nutsert tools arent too expensive, there are a bunch on Amazon, and Harbor Freight has one for about $22

    I think I still have a tool from something I did many years ago, but not that specific one in which you asked for, so not sure if is what you wants/need. Plus I am a ways from you it looks like :/
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not.

    Thanks all of you who replied - I didn’t realize I could pick them up at Harbor freight! Paul if I do wind up in Manchester before I grab one I’ll reach out, otherwise it’s pretty far but thank you I really appreciate it

    No problem. I got one on Amazon. The one at Harbor Freight didn't have the sizes I needed, nor did any local tool place.

    You can set them with the right size bolt, nut, and a washer. Thread the nut onto the bolt, put the washer below the nut, and thread the whole thing into the rivnut. Hold the bolt and tighten the nut against the flange and it will set the rivet. If I were only doing a couple, that's how I've done them the redneck way.

    Hard to describe what I mean.... here.
