Eye bolts are mechanical fasteners with threaded shafts and a ring-shaped head, and are used to attach to a structure in which the ‘eye’ or ‘ring’ can have rope, cable or shackled secured on them.
They host safe working loads, with lower strength and higher strength eyebolts available for special purposes.
Low-strength eye bolts are often formed from a length of bar with the diameter of the nominal thread size, with the head bent into a ring from an unthreaded section of the bar. These eyebolts can carry axial loads well, but should not be used for off-axis loads.
High-strength eye bolts have forged heads and generally host a substantial shoulder, which enables them to support off-axis loads – which is important in applications that require multiple ‘eyes’.
There is a range of specialised eye bolts available, which you can view via our website.
Available in both metric and imperial threads, in a range of sizes, with specials available to order.
