Yes, but we call braces suspenders. So over here it would be "belt and suspenders". BTW what you call suspenders are called garters here.
Suspenders are what women (and some men I suppose) use to hold up stockings.

As for getting T nuts in and out without resorting to a hammer, a bolt of the correct thread and a washer can be used to pull them in, but to get them out, you could add a cylindrical piece of metal such as a short piece of iron pipe which fits over the flange and screw them out from the inside.

Steve men's garters are worn just above the ankle.  I have only seen them in old movies.  I assume socks were not as elastic as they are now

Garters hold your socks up.  I have never seen those in actual use.  When I am doing manual labor nothing beats a loose fitting pair of carpenters jeans and Carhart Braces.  I have heard the term "belts and braces" used by more than just UK friends.  I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone under 40 familiar. 

Goes with "carter has bills (who is this Carter guy??? It was Carter's liver pills!) and In like Flynn !"



Debbie,

In response to Scott's post above, I have no doubt that in no time at all you'll be "in like Flynn". I also have no doubt you'll succeed as you're not one of those people that has more excuses than "Carter has little liver pills."

The Flynn by the way is Errol Flynn. Meet Mr. Flynn;

Well in fairness, one of the T Nuts on the first (DOA) SRX828 was loose too - I just managed to save it from falling…so that is a legitimate 20 - no?

I would hand press it into the hole to get the barbs started, then gently thread a capscrew or bolt with a large washer from the outside until it's snug.  Then slowly pull the t-nut into the wood with the bolt until it's made an impression with the entire flange.  That's how I put all my t-nuts in.  I might be able to give them a whack with a hammer to get them started but pulling with a bolt keeps things straight and ensures that it's fully seated.

I use a small vise to seat them.  Equal compression on the whole nut, and it goes in square and you can really compress it in.

When I compress my nuts it must be equal.  On a serious note I use the fender washer trick previously noted.
