Eye Bolts

Eye bolts feature a closed loop design that secures cables and chains in order to support the weight of heavy hanging objects such as plumbing pipes and wires.

Finish

Plain

Nothing has been done to this bare metal surface to improve appearance or corrosion resistance, which is very low if the material is steel. Often the surface has been oiled which improves lubricity. This finish is susceptible to rusting and corrosion in exterior environments. This most basic finish can be used when protection is not an issue or indoors.
Zinc

This finish, also know as zinc plating, zinc chromate or dichromate provides good corrosion resistance and is the standard for many hardware fasteners. It is an electroplated zinc layer covered with a chromate post-treatment. The zinc protects the steel from corrosion and the chromate layer protects the zinc from degrading. It is a popular finish because of its protection, value, and ease of coating. Slightly less corrosion resistant than yellow zinc, it is a versatile finish that is best used indoors. This finish should not be used in marine or high salt spray environments.

Material

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is steel combined with alloying elements, principally chromium, to enhance corrosion resistance and impart other desired properties depending upon the alloying elements in use and their proportions. Many stainless steel fasteners are non-magnetic or less magnetic than regular steel fasteners.
Steel

Steel is the most common fastener material due to its strength properties. Unalloyed steel may be surface treated to enhance corrosion resistance and other desirable properties.

Type

Turned Eye Bolt

Turned eye bolts, also known as bent eyebolts or wire eyebolts, are usually used for tie-down applications or for guiding wire, rope, or chain. They are not intended for lifting applications.
