I don't guess we have an industrial hardware store around here. At least not one that I've been able to find. I've found them on the internet and have contacted them to see if they can tell me who in my are carries them.

They are like a threaded pop-rivet. Like an instant tapped hole.

The ones I'm looking for require a special tool to install them. Like Steve mentioned it's an instant threaded hole and stong as crap.

Those are the ones I'm looking for. Now I need an installation tool that's not $1000.
