Carriage Bolts are mostly used in wood or metal to wood applications with a domed top and a square body under the head. This square body pulls into the wood as the nut is tightened. When using carriage bolts always use a flat washer between the wood and hex nut to eliminate pull-through of the nut in the wood. Drill pilot hole slightly larger than body diameter of bolt. Insert the carriage bolt so the headed end is on finished side of project for appearance or safety. Length is measured from under head to end of bolt. Use stainless steel where corrorsion is and rust is of concern or for exterior applications. 18.8 Stainless steel is an alloy steel that provides one of the highest degree of corrosion resistance when compared to a steel zinc finish. Ideal for outdoor projects such as decks, fences, wood structures and with treated lumber installations.
Paulin's Hex Bolts are designed to be used with nuts and washers to secure two or more parts together (wood, metal, plastic and other materials) and allow for easy disassembly for maintenance and repair. Grade 2 bolts are commonly used as general hardware where high strength is not required. Hexagonal head designed to fit a ratchet or wrench that can be turned from the side. Zinc-plating provides moderate corrosion resistance.
Lag Bolts are also called Lag Screws and are recommended for all types of wood or metal to wood construction where standard wood or deck screws are too short or light and where nails or spikes lack sufficient strength. They can be installed in wood with pre-drilled pilot holes or in masonry with Lag Shields. In wood to wood applications the non-threaded shank allows the second piece to be drawn tightly to the first piece of wood. Flat or fender washers are suggested to provide a larger bearing surface and to prevent the head of the lag bolt from imbedding in the first piece of wood. Hot dipped galvanized finish provides one of the highest degree of corrosion resistance when compared to a steel zinc finish. Ideal for outdoor projects such as decks, fences, wood structures and with treated lumber installations.
Joint Connector Bolts are designed to connect furniture or woodworking components at right angles or parallel. Ideal for all Knock-Down or Ready-to-Assemble Furniture. Used with Cap Nuts, Inserts, cross dowels or tee nuts. Low profile, large diameter, hex drive head. Brass plated is more economical than solid brass and is purely a decorative finish to match most hardware or wood used in Knock-Down or Ready-to-Assemble Furniture projects.
