Captive Reduced Thread Hexagon Bolt feature an unthreaded portion below the head, often referred to as a reduced shank. Once installed alongside a Threaded Captive Washer, these components cannot be fully removed from their housing.
This design helps to prevent any loss of fasteners and increases both safety and security. They are required by EU Law in certain pieces of safety-critical equipment such as safety guards, conforming to the EU Machine Safety Directive 2006.
These Captive Hexagon Bolt are often found in industrial machinery, military equipment, and applications where maintenance is required e.g. service panels.
