Do you know the secret of the carriage bolt?

Carriage bolts are different from ordinary bolts. They are characterized by a larger head and a square part below, which prevents the bolt from rotating when locked.
And this design was originally only to meet the needs of the carriage. When the carriage is running, it will be subjected to various vibrations and impacts. If ordinary bolts are used, they may become loose due to vibrations. But the design of the carriage bolt can effectively prevent this situation, so it is widely used in the manufacture of carriages, hence the name.
But the carriage bolt is not only characterized by its anti-rotation design, but also by its ability to withstand greater pressure and impact. Because of its larger head, it can distribute the pressure to a larger area, reducing the damage to the connecting material. Therefore, it has been widely used in furniture manufacturing, building structures and other occasions that need to withstand greater pressure.
When choosing, it is necessary to consider its material, specification, strength and other factors to ensure that it can meet the needs of specific purposes. When in use, the square part of the bolt needs to be inserted into the pre-prepared square hole, and then locked with a nut. In this way, even during the tightening process, the bolt will not rotate. Therefore, the stability of the connection structure is ensured.
