It would be a neat idea. Of course, you could only put the screw in and out a few times before the nylon becomes ineffective and the blind nut needs replacement but that's fine. They'd be nice for landing gear and engine mounts.

Check at a parts store for some Lock-tite. Comes in different colors for different uses . I us the blue ,holds but you can remove the bolt or nut. Max H.

I know about and use loctite. Nylon inserts would be so much cleaner.

Yep, been using Locktite for many years on everything from automotive to RC. Ny-locks do work well for certain things though.

Technically, nylon lock nuts are only supposed to be used once. I think that's why no one has put them into a blind nut - not to mention the difficulty involved

They do make a all steel lock nut that can be used over. It could be soldered to a tin or brass plate & that held to the rear of the firewall with small screws. The nylon insert would melt from heat if soldered .
Several aircraft I used to work on in my old AF days used a nylon nut held in a stamped alumimnum holder that was riveted to the ac frame with one or two rivets . Never did see any changed over the years but they were not in any high vibration areas ,mostly just a tough place to put a nut on . " Keep em flying " Max H.

Those would be the two biggest issues. they would have to be replaced now and then if used for something that comes apart a lot and it would be a pretty complicated, expensive little blind nut. Would be a nice option to have now and then though..
