Fwiw, bindingfreedom.com is the site of the guy who originally designed the inserts used by quiverkiller, and has upgraded the design somewhat in his offering.  He also does swap plates between dynafit and most look and salomon bindings, as well as marker dukes. 

 

In my experience both quiverkiller and bindingfreedom are good folks with good products, as well slidewright has proven to be a good supplier to deal with as well.

Here's an alternative: http://www.slidewright.com/binding-freedom-stainless-steel-threaded-inserts_3001.html

 

Their starter kit is more expensive, but their inserts are less.  (Caveat: I haven't compared shipping costs.)

So you'd think. But *good* hardware stores are like good record stores--they exist, just not like they used to.

It also looks like McMaster-Carr doesn't seem to have what QuiverKiller offers: http://www.mcmaster.com/#standard-threaded-inserts/=j8y4tu

I can find plenty of externally threaded stainless steel insert nuts, some with M5 internal thread, but no closed-end ones. Seems like Puder Luder has taken the guesswork out of it.

Is it not possible to find SS inserts at a hardware store?

 

Not sure. If you find some let me know!

McMaster-Carr has them, but they're not any cheaper. If my local hardware store had them, I guess they would probably not be any cheaper either.
