Abstract : A method of installing a metallic threaded insert in a composite/rubber panel consists of threading a first insert section into a pre-formed hole in a fiberglass composite panel, and bonding a rubber panel over the fiber- glass composite panel. The rubber panel includes an opening which is positioned over the first insert section. A second insert section is threaded onto an elongated positioning panel bolt and then the positioning bolt is threaded into the first insert section. The second insert section is threaded downwardly on the positioning so as to be in adjacent relation to the first insert section, and the opening in the rubber panel is filled with a rubber compound. The rubber compound is cured, preferably at room temperature, to set the second insert section in position and the positioning bolt is threaded out of the first and second insert sections.
