Water Bottle Boss Test

I did a quick water bottle boss test.  I used AW Rivnuts designed for "softer" materials in an M5x0.8 thread.  After drilling the correct size hole I installed the Rivnut watching it collapse on the back side as I went.

Here it is installed.

And here it is ripped out after applying considerable force.  Enough force to delaminate the tube wall.

I'll use DP-420 in behind the Rivnuts when I install them in a frame for added security.
