I bought 5 knowing one was going to break. First, save yourself the trouble and drill a hole 1/16 to 1/8 larger than reccomended. Piece installed nicely and works wonderfully. The reason for 3 stars and not 4 is because my local big box store sells them for $1.50. (Posted on 1/16/14)
great item but not true to size Review by ryan

these are a very useful piece and open up a lot of options but the sizing is off. 1/2 is too small for anything solid. go up 1/8" or more to avoid splitting (Posted on 2/15/12)
Not as simple as described Review by Fdiddy

Depending on the installation (softwood, hardwood, etc) the hole required will differ. Also, if installing into a narrow piece of wood, cracking is pretty likely. If I were doing this again, I'd buy the same part from Rockler or buy any part that has a 3/8 - 16 thread inside that will fit a tap bolt. (Posted on 10/18/11)
