Default Tee nuts in the UK?

I would have thought that the answer would be "Maplins" but no.
Where can I buy them, specifically M4 thread?

Sign of the times !!!

Maplins only seem good for mobile phone stuff and car decorations, now.

Going the same way as the old Tandy did before they sold out to CarPhone Warehouse

not U.K., but in Sydney I found some in my local hardware store (Bunnings) in the furniture fittings section (next to screws, bolts etc...)

If you're after a local pick up, then screwfix, b&q etc. will all stock Tee nuts.

Personally I think insert nuts are far superior:

I could have sworn screwfix had them, but you're right. how daft is that. Well I have a bag of 500 lying around which I'll never use. I can pop some in the post to you if you like. Just send me your address.

Cheers Vikash, PM sent.

I'd like to fix this issue for everyone though. Surely everyone uses them.
