Machinery eye bolts with shoulders are fully threaded bolts that are suitable for lifting angular loads up to 45 degrees. Lifting angular loads, however, will diminish the eye bolt capacity. Heavy forged eye bolts with a continuous eye may be forged with an integrated shoulder, allowing them to lift heavy off-center loads.
They can be used as a connection point for rigging, anchoring, pulling, pushing, or hoisting objects, depending on their size and metallic composition. These eye bolts come in a plain steel finish for use in dry environments or zinc-plated finish for corrosion resistance in wet environments.
They may also be hot dipped galvanized for extra corrosion resistance and strength. These eye bolts are also sold in 304 and 316 stainless steel materials. 304 stainless steel is chemical resistant, 316 stainless steel is the most chemical resistant.
