Why the GripTide feature works:

The Griptide multi-directional patterns were designed for maximum resistance to torque and pull-out. Repeated testing has demonstrated remarkable success including a bolt-breaking hold on a variety of plastics. Continuous 100% part inspection monitors every insert during all phases of the manufacturing process.  Cold-Forming provides design freedom while maintaining dimensional repeatability.
