Insert sleeves have an outer diameter (o/d) of known screws sizes with the internal diameter (i/d) being the pre-drill diameter for that screw. This helps with lag screw placement as the glide/clearance hole is drilled into the near bone fragment using a clearance drill for the size screw you are planning to use. The insert sleeve of this external diameter is then placed into the glide hole and the pre-drill inserted through it to dri ll a pre-drill hole in the far bone fragment. The relevant size screw is then implanted as a lag screw.
