Go large with the extra-wide bearing surface of structural bolts (AKA hex cap head bolts or heavy hex). Known for their better load distribution, these heavy duty hex bolts are available in a variety of steels. This type of structural fastener can get fairly large and items can vary in numerous ways, so be sure you are getting the right ones for the job. Item selections vary by grade, size, overall length; thread size, length, direction and type; head diameter, tensile strength, package quantity and other considerations. For more on bolts, see our eyebolts, carriage bolts, and u-bolts.
