A hex bolt incorporates a large 6-sided head that is used with a nut or a tapped hole. Ideal for machinery and building construction, these fasteners are typically made with varying grades of steel that can be further reinforced with a heat- or rust-resistant plating such as zinc or chromium.
A carriage bolt is the go-to for lumber construction and furniture making. Its square neck sits beneath a smooth rounded head, grabbing the wood and locking the bolt in place as it is tightened with a matching course-threaded nut.
Curved anchor and J-type fasteners are typically used for stone, brick, or concrete. The leg portion is meant to create resistance and stability when anchoring columns, poles, and railings. This hardware is often hot-dipped in galvanized steel for increased corrosion resistance in the outdoors.
Eye fasteners use a ring rather than a wrench head. Pointed varieties can be used to secure lighter weights without using a nut, while flat ends provide greater strength for rope, chain, and other vertical lift purposes.
