Below are some of the fasteners you should know about:
An eye bolt looks like a lollipop. While one end of the bolt looks like the threaded end of a screw, the other end is round in shape. The threaded ends are part of the bolts, featuring slanted ridges. These metal pieces are used to fix cables, wires, strings or chains to any surface or objects. For instance, they can be fixed into the ceiling to support plumbing pipes. Besides, these are also used to support wall hangings, light fixtures and other decorative items.
Usually there are two types of eye bolts: welded and forged. A welded one has got closed ‘eye’, fixed to the base, while the forged one has got an ‘eye’ that forms a semi-closed loop.
This kind of fastener is a round pin used to fix two objects with each other. It is mainly used to manufacture curtain rods or racks. It is available in various sizes and designs. However, the wooden ones are the most commonly used fasteners, as these are used in wooden pieces to strengthen the joints.
Depending upon your requirement, you can select from a wide range of available fasteners.
