As the name suggests, U bolt looks like the letter U, featuring two threaded arms suspending from a curved base. It is available in numerous sizes and features various applications and uses.
The galvanized U bolts undergo a chemical process to protect themselves from corroding and rusting. Such fasteners get coated in layers with ZnO (Zinc Oxide). This kind of coating prevents these metal pieces from getting corroded. Besides, the coating renders a longer life to the rivets, durability to withstand wear & tear and a glossy finish, thereby making them attractive.
In simple words, galvanized U bolt is a rod, being threaded at both ends and bent to form a ‘U’ shape. These types of bolts are usually found with a smooth curve, specially designed to accommodate a cylinder; for instance, the axle or exhaust tubing.
There are certain U bolts featuring a squared off shape, are specially manufactured to fasten flat bases such as wooden blocks, square tubing or any other kind of flat layers. Sometimes, the ends of the bolts feature a bar/crossed member drilled with holes, which slide over the open ends to enclose them.

Like in automobiles, our hot dipped galvanized U bolts are used in numerous applications. For instance, they are used to attach springs to the rear axles and front of the heavy-duty trucks, off-road trucks and cars. These fasteners are used to attach truck parts to the frames and are used in ringing applications and anything which requires a clamping force between two pieces.

The U-shape of these rivets help them keep firmly in desired position, thereby preventing the object to easily get pulled away from its fittings. This further leads to inducing durability and safety.
Apart from stainless steel and galvanized pieces, we also deal with steel zinc plated, aluminum, black oxide, plain finish etc.
The threaded ends of the galvanized U bolts are designed to get along with screws and washers. Some people are also seen using a cross-piece, spanning both the ends so as to make the fastener secure in particular settings and applications.
Like other bolts, these pieces are also manufactured to get into any pre-drilled or pilot holes. The U bolts are most commonly used in fastening various pieces to beams and poles, mostly in houses. These pieces help in suspending any object from the utility pole. In such cases, the U bolts are used along-with cross-pieces which snag the bolt in place.
Besides our bolts are also used to pass cables across the walls. While both the ends are inserted into the walls, the U face holds the cables or any other flat materials against the wall.
However, depending upon the type of application, the size and grade of the bolt should be chosen, in order to eliminate any work-arounds later. And if you are willing to use them in corrosive or humid environment then our hot dipped galvanized U bolts work best for you.
