Special T-nut zinc-plated M 10 "Professional"
You use T-nuts for the fastening of climbing holds on a wooden wall. T-nuts are the counter pieces of hexagon socket screws.
If your climbing wall is indoors, special T-nuts will be ideal. If your climbing wall is outdoors, but its backside does not come into contact with humidity, you can use zinc-plated special T-nuts, too. The main difference with regard to zinc-plated T-nuts is that special T-nuts are not bashed in from the back, but they are fixed with 2 chipboard screws. This guarantees a perfect stability than the commercial fixing with T-nuts and a low work input.

First you have to make a raster. Therefore, mark all places where you want to assemble T-nuts. For boulder walls, a hole matrix of 10 cm is advisable (demand/qm: 95 T-nuts). The first row should be displaced to the second row.
You can also use only as many T-Nuts as climbing holds. Then you have only few opportunities to assemble your climbing holds. Furthermore, if you want to expand your climbing wall you`ll have to demount all plates.
After marking all places for your T-nuts, you have to bore 12 mm holes. Then, T-nuts must be installed in the back of your climbing wall. Use a special wood adhesive to give T-nuts a better hold.
If adhesive gets into contact with screw thread you´ll have to clean your T-nut afterward.
