    Its a tee-nut. If it's 3/8-16 thread, then more than likely someone might have used it on the wood planks enabling the bolt to be inserted through the rear weldment.

    Google Tee-Nut, and you'll see it's applications.

      The items found in there that have nothing to do with a pinspotter are countless...My personal favorites...Diamonds and money.
      I can't even spell Brunsw-ick anymore!!!

                Those also remind me of the "permanent" nut found in the urethane ball rings.

                  Bingo, well at least for me. I had those urethane ball door rings. When I would switch them out for the metal ones I would have to use some vise grips to hold onto the ones that had come out of the urethane casting, what a real pain. But if they fall out all the more better. I bet he has those ball door rings.

                    That is a T nut, those are usually meant for wood so that they twist as they are driven in and don't come out easily, I find them a lot when messing with older wooden furniture. The new bin shockmounts are just 2 Tnuts that they put end to end; in a mold and squirt it full of rubber. I reckon they use them so when they are molding it can attach to the prongs and it'll give the "goo" something to hold on to.

                    but there are lots of different ones available through fastner dealers. I use the circular base ones with nibs for spot welding to repair the durorings here.

                      Whenever a chassis is not working right just throw a bunch of these in it and it magically fixes everything.

                            Those T nuts are also used to mount the rear corner deflector plates to wooden pit boards on Brunswick A/A2's.
