What Are Eye Bolts?

Eye bolts are a type of fastener that features a loop or circular “eye” at one end and threading on the other. They are used to attach a secure point to a structure from which objects can be hung or to attach ropes, cables, or chains for lifting or securing different items. Eye bolts come in various sizes and materials, including steel, stainless steel, and galvanized steel, making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.

The basic parts of an eye bolt include:

The Eye: The looped part that forms the head of the bolt. This is where ropes or hooks are attached.

The Shank: This is the long, threaded portion that screws into a material. Eye bolts can have either partially or fully threaded shanks.

The Thread: The spiraled ridges around the shank allow the eye bolt to be secured into a threaded hole or used with a nut.

Eye bolts are widely used in construction, engineering, maritime, and industrial applications. They are particularly crucial in lifting operations where they must often meet specific safety standards and certifications to handle designated weights safely.
