A carriage bolt has a square shoulder under a rounded head which resists turning when the nut is tightened or removed. They are good for wood-to-wood connections when the head may not be accessible for tightening. They may be used in the construction of docks, swing sets and decks as well as other surfaces where a smooth finish is needed.

Carriage bolts are pushed into a hole the same size as the shank and then hammered in the rest of the way, where the square shoulder locks it firmly in place. Used whenever a smooth finish surface is needed so that nothing becomes snagged on the fastener. Zinc plating, retards the corrosion rate in a normal atmosphere.

Carriage bolt length is measured from under the head to the end of the bolt including the square neck.

Note: Thread length on carriage bolts can vary. Some shorter lengths will be fully threaded.
