Eye bolts are one of the most commonly used pieces of hardware in material handling. They have a simple design consisting of a threaded shank with a ring, also known as an eye, at one end. Eye bolts are made of various materials; the most common being carbon, stainless and alloy steel.
Eye bolts are used by being threaded into structures such as wood or steel posts, often supported by a nut. Their design allows for a rope or cable to be fed through the ring in order to lift objects.
There are many different styles of eye bolts, the most common in industrial applications are nut eye bolts, machinery eye bolts, and screw eye bolts. These are available in a variety of sizes and finishes to safely accommodate various load weights and types.
Eye bolts are also available in two different loop styles, plain or shoulder type. Plain type eye bolts are not suitable for angular lifts but shoulder type are, while keeping in mind the rated capacity is drastically reduced when loading at any angle.
