Need help with some G#D D$*#M Nutserts!!!

Does anybody have any experience with installing EVO crusher corners. I can't get the damn nutsert to not spin. Are nutserts suppose to collapse in on itself or what? I am to the point of just buying bolts and drilling all the way through and forgoing the nutserts.

PM bodyguy. He just welded those pieces of shit on. River Raider uses well nuts which worked out pretty well for me.

Are you using a nutsert insert tool? they have to be compressed like a rivet.

That piece of shit that they call a tool that they include was useless to me. I got a setting tool from harbor freight. They were still a pain in the ass to set the nutserts.

Rivet nuts/nutserts can be a PITA to collapse. I'm not sure what the tool looks like that you got with the kit, but if you search the web for "rivet nut tool" you can find a cheap little tool that will do the trick. It looks like two wedges that slide against each other. I had to set some 12mm rivet nuts and couldn't find one of the ramp style tools for that large of a thread so I had to make my own at work. They were hard as hell to collapse, but it worked.

Good luck!

***EDIT***
Actually, this is the tool I was thinking of.

What size are they?

I have this tool, I used for the PSC body armor, it works REALLY WELL compared to the "tool" supplied

Use an electrical drill with adjustable torque, no torque wrench.

This thing right here is what kept me from burning the jeep to the ground. Order the proper head for it and you will be set. I destroyed the harbor freight one first try. give the guy a call he was awsome to deal with.
