How to Install Easton Arrow Inserts

Installing arrow inserts is often a necessary part of archery. Arrow manufacturers make their shafts long to accommodate all archers, so individuals must cut the arrows to length after purchase. Once cut, the archer must install an insert to accept a field point or broadhead. Insert installation is easy. You can place inserts into a dozen arrows in just minutes, using either of two methods.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

Arrow shaftInsertField pointTorch or hob burnerEaston Hot Melt adhesiveEaston HIT epoxyPliersPaper towel

Instructions

Hot Melt Adhesive

1 Heat Easton Hot Melt adhesive over a torch or hob burner until it is slightly melted.

2 Dab a small ring of adhesive inside of the arrow shaft.

3 Hold the insert by the field point. Heat the shank end of the insert for 5 seconds. Hold the insert in your hands for installation in carbon or aluminium/carbon shafts. This ensures you won't overheat the insert, which could damage the arrow shaft. You may use pliers for installation in aluminium shafts.

4 Coat the entire shank of the insert with adhesive.

5 Push the shank of the insert into the arrow shaft one-quarter inch.

6 Re-heat the insert for 5 seconds.

7 Push the insert into the shaft until it seats immediately after reheating the insert, while the adhesive is still soft. Push it slowly to prevent excess adhesive from pushing out.

8 Rotate the insert one or two revolutions to ensure the adhesive fully coats the inside of the shaft and the shank of the insert.

9 Wipe off any overflow adhesive with a paper towel.

10 Stand the arrow on the point to cure.

Epoxy

1 Dab a small ring of epoxy inside of the arrow shaft.

2 Coat the entire shank of the insert with epoxy.

3 Twist the insert into the shaft until it seats.

4 Wipe off excess epoxy with a paper towel.

5 Stand the arrow on the point to cure.

Tips and warnings

Consult Easton's archery catalogue to determine which insert type and size you need for your arrow shaft. Screw a field point into the insert to make handling the insert easier.

Be careful not to burn your fingers while heating inserts. Avoid getting adhesive or epoxy on your fingers.
