    I want to insert a threaded bar into a concrete block but have the ability to remove the threaded bar whenever I want.
    Dies anybody know the name of a sort of hollow holder for a threaded bar? In other words I want to sink a hollow tube with threads on the inside of it to the concrete allowing me to then screw a threaded bar inside.

    Can't r seem to find one anywhere

    To be able to use the bar as a tightener against something on the other side of the concrete. A bit like how they have those little screws in a Christmas tree stand

    Yes, that's what they're designed for, to screw something into them.

    Take note these type of fixings need a tool to knock the inside wedge into place, I've got an 8mm one that your quite welcome to borrow if thats the size your using
