About Eye Bolts
Eye bolts are straight on one side and have a loop on the other side so that rope or cable can be run through it to secure items together. They are often used for anchoring, lifting, suspending, and tensioning applications. There is a wide variety of eye bolt types available in different materials, such as forged steel, stainless steel, aluminum alloy, and brass.
Types of Eye Bolts
There are many types of eye bolts to choose from: forged eye bolt anchors with a closed loop for strength; reamed hole eye bolts made from solid bar stock; billet eye bolts which are more robust and feature a small hole with smooth sides; wire turned closed eye bolt screws with a wire bent into a loop for light-duty applications; swivel eye bolt shoulder types with hook-shaped closure featuring gap for easily attaching or removing wires or ropes; short heavy duty threaded eye bolts suitable for angular loads; and even concrete oval shaped hammer drill shouldered eyes designed to resist corrosion.
Industries That Use Eye Bolts
Eye bolts made from stainless steel, carbon steel, zinc plated metals and other corrosion resistant materials are commonly used in industries such as manufacturing plants (for machinery installation), construction sites (for crane lifts), shipping yards (to secure cargo), and agricultural operations (for animal tethers).
