The name HeliCoil ® was probably the first recognised brand in this sector and as a result has become the generic term used when discussing wire thread inserts. Similar to using Hoover instead of vacuum cleaner, Helicoil can often be used to describe the type of fixing rather than a deliberate brand specification.

Recoil ®

Alcoa Fastening Systems (AFS) manufacture the Recoil ® brand of insert. The range of sizes and thread forms (including metric, UNC, UNF, BSC, BA, BSP and BSW) are very similar to the Heli-Coil ® range.
