Eye Bolt

An eye bolt is a bolt with a loop at one end. They are used to firmly attach a securing eye to a structure, so that ropes or cables may then be tied to it. Eye bolts provide a method for anchoring chain and wire rope to a fixed surface such as wood, metal, concrete, etc.

Detailed Description for Eye Bolt

Eye bolts are fully threaded and may have a collar, making them suitable for use with angular loads up to 45°. Eye bolts without a shoulder should not be used for angular loads.

Eye bolts made by bending a rod or wire into a loop are only suitable for light duty applications, as heavy loads can cause the eye to open. For high loads, eye bolts with forged or welded loops should be chosen, as they can withstand loads up to the tensile strength of the material of which they are made.

It is recommended to use shouldered eye bolts for rigging hardware, except when prohibited by the configuration of the item to which the eye bolt is attached. Where non-shouldered eye bolts are required, they shall be used only in vertical pulls or in rigging systems that are designed, analyzed, and approved by a qualified person.

Shoulders of eye bolts shall seat uniformly and snugly against the surface on which they bear. Never undercut eye bolt to seat shoulder against the load. Always countersink receiving hole or use washers to seat shoulder.

When more than one eye bolt is used in conjunction with multiple-leg rigging, spreader bars or lifting beams should be used to eliminate angular loading. In case two or more than two eye bolts are used without spreader bars. When eye bolts cannot be properly seated and aligned with each other, a steel washer or spacer not to exceed one thread pitch may be required to put below the eye bolt. Proper thread engagement must be maintained. Use a washer with approximately the same diameter as the eye bolt shoulder and the smallest inside diameter that will fit the eye bolt shank.


·         Orient the eye bolt in line with the slings. If the load is applied sideways, the eye bolt may bend.

·         Pack washers between the shoulder and the load surface to ensure that the eye bolt firmly contacts the surface. Ensure that the nut is properly torqued.

·         Engage at least 90% of threads in a receiving hole when using shims or washers.

·         Attach only one sling leg to each eye bolt.
