Carriage Bolts With Nuts & Washers, 12 Per Pack
Carriage Bolts with Nuts and Washers - Pack of 12
Carriage bolts, also known as round head square neck bolts, are a type of fastener that has a round head with a square neck underneath. They are used to fasten wood or metal together and are often used in construction and other applications where a strong, secure joint is required. The square neck on the bolt prevents it from turning when the nut is tightened, ensuring that the joint remains secure. To install a carriage bolt, the bolt is inserted through a pre-drilled hole in one of the materials being joined, with the square neck facing towards the material. A nut is then tightened onto the end of the bolt, pulling the two materials together and creating a strong joint. Our carriage bolts are available in a variety of sizes, including 10, 12, and 14 inches and are zinc plated. They are threaded for at least 3/4 of the length of the bolt.
