What is an Eye Bolt?
An eye bolt, consisting of a threaded shank/rod with a ring at one end, is one of the most commonly used gear in material handling and lifting industry.
The threaded shank can be securely screwed into a structure. Once the bolt is secured in place, ropes or cables can be anchored to or fed through the protruding ring.
Different types of Eye Bolts:
There are many eye bolt types on the market for different uses. Generally speaking, heavy-duty eyebolts can be used in rigging for lifting heavy loads, whereas smaller eyebolts for tensioning wires, securing loads and in other non-load bearing applications. There are 2 common types widely used- Collar eye bolts and dynamo eye bolts - and are covered by the British Stanard 4278.
- Dynamo Eye Bolts: It is relatively low cost with larger ring diameter, for axial lifting (not for an angled lift) only. Usually, it can be used only a few times during the lifetime of the equipment they were screwed into.
- Collar Eye Bolts: With a large collar between the eye and the screw thread, it can be used for both axial and non-axial lifting. SWL has to be reduced by the appropriate factor for non-axial lifting. For the SWL reduction, please refer to the BS 4278:1984 attached below. When the collar is screwed firmly down onto a machined face, it can support the eye and prevent any bending of the screw thread. The smaller ring diameter also minimizes the leverage.
