Austin Kayack has shipped every thing that I have ordered on time. I received exactly what I wanted and exactly what was described on their web site. I will recommend ACK to my friends who need or want something for their kayacks.

These are great, make sure you get 1 and 1/2 inch #10-32 screws (for 1" well nut). You can get these from Fasten-all in bulk for a good price. 1" screws will not allow you to through any accessory and install the well nut... without a bunch of elbow grease.

Top Question & Answer
Q: What is the name and part number of the 10-32 machine screw on your website that works with these well nuts?
A: There are a number of different length bolts that work with these well nuts. I have listed the link below to the most popular bolt that we offer. Item # 263 http://www.austinkayak.com/products/263/Stainless-Steel-Bolt-10.html

Q: Do you have the min/max grip range for each of these nuts? Also, the "head" seems awfully thin- any problems with the screw going through to the kayak material beneath? Finally, why would I not want to just buy the 1" long wellnuts? Same price as 5/8"-- seems just a little more time to screw the extra distance. Am I missing something?
A: When using these with the 3/8" drilled hole (for no access inside the kayak), only the last 1/4" or so has the threads for expansion, so you don't want to overtighten. This is also why you need to know the width of the plastic you're drilling into -- if you go with the 1' well nuts, the threads may be past the plastic on the inside, and will not expand and grip against the plastic when tightened.
