5.0 / 5.09 ReviewsAwesomeDrill the hole into the thing you want on your taps, screw in this baby, and install on your faucet. Boom. Deer antler tap handle.January 9, 2012Worked Well enoughThe first one I used cracked and broke as I was trying to screw it in. Also had a tough time getting it into the predrilled hole straight without cracking the wood. _x000D__x000D_The second one I used a drill to get it in straight and quick without cracking.October 30, 2012Did the jobOrdered several of these and 2-3 of them had damaged threads, they filed right out though. Worked great on both wood and antler tap handles. I would recommend giving yourself some room to play with on the diameter of the base of your handle if you are turning your own (1/4") or like Lonnie said the handles will split.November 28, 2012Great cheap solution for custom handlesMy neighbor has a small lathe and he made me two handles, one was out of some cherry and one was out of walnut. He used wax on the threads when tapping the handle to lubricate the wood and it worked out well.February 6, 2013Great dealCan't beat the price and if you want custom handles than this is a must.March 14, 2013Good product with 2 small issues for installation.I had two small issues with the inserts. First the lead threads needed to be filed to remove some burrs left over from machining. Secondly in hard oak I could not get the insert started with the recommended 1/2 inch hole and so I had to drill a 9/16 inch one to get them to thread into the handle.March 26, 2013needs 9/16" holeI got these and they are working great, but I had to drill a 9/16" hole instead of the 1/2" hole they recommend. When I tried to get them in the 1/2" hole, the tap handle was cracking, but a 9/16" hole worked perfectly. That larger hole also allows you to push (with some pressure) the insert partially into your hole to get it going straight easier.June 6, 2013love how easy it is to uselove these bought a few easily turned old yeast vials into taps that i filled with grain or hops_x000D_ helps make cheap unique homemade tap handlesFebruary 16, 2014

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 8 answersDo you only get 1?BEST ANSWER: yes...only one. however, it's less expensive than the same insert on amazon ($4.99).what tool is used to install these threaded brass insertsBEST ANSWER: You'll need to drill a 1/2" diameter hole 5/8" deep into the bottom of your tap first. Then insert the smooth end into the hole and tighten the notched end with a wide flat-head screwdriver. Next, screw the tap handle into your tap and pour yourself a pint of your latest brew. Repeat the last step as necessary.With the item #K215 insert - what is the thread size inside the insert?BEST ANSWER: 3/8" x 16 thread. This is a standard 3/8 inch bolt size and the size on any beer faucet handle. I turn my own handles on the lathe and insert these in a hole drilled in the end. You can use a screwdriver but I finally bought a T-handle with the matching slot from Woodcraft which makes it easier to screw in the insert.
