Heavy Duty and Stainless Steel Eyebolts - Miscellaneous
Eyebolts are simple and effective pieces of hardware that create an attachment point for a rope or cable to a larger piece of equipment, such as an RV, trailer, or electronic enclosure.
The two distinct parts of an eyebolt are the eye — a circular metal loop to which the rope or cable is tied or through which it will pass — and the shank, a threaded fastener which anchors the eye to a solid base. A “shoulder” may extend below the eye to the top of the shank, providing a larger, flat surface which creates more stability on the face of the mounting item. The shoulder helps the eyebolt support angular loads caused by tension on the rope or cable.
