What is a Helicoil Tang?

By STG Machine

A helicoil tang is a small piece of metal located on the bottom of a helicoil. The tang helps drive the insert into place when using a helicoil installation tool. In order to move a screw in and out of the insert, the tang must be removed after installation.
