Lifting Eye Bolts are mechanical fasteners with a threaded shaft and a head formed into a loop. Most often they are forged and then machined. Eyebolts are used to attach an eye to a structure, through which rope, cable or shackles can be secured for lifting.
Eye Bolts are bolts with a loop on one end. Before tying ropes or cables for lifting, the securing eye must be firmly fixed to the structure. In certain cases, the eye bolt may be inserted into a specially designed opening. The load will also need to be secured to a hole constructed for a different purpose, such as a stud. Eye bolts that were firmly attached to the load were previously left in place, essentially making them part of the load. Detachable lifting points, on the other hand, are now commonly used as accessories.
Common applications of Eye Bolts are:
- • Industrial Lifting
- • Tie-Downs
- • Material Handling Equipment
