  • U-Boats and U-Bolts

    Growing up in a sea-devoted household, I was able to learn my fair share about everything nautical. In our house resided rows of books focusing on the ocean, boats and lighthouses. Plus an entire row composed of the entire collection of Master and Commander books. Add to that the several rows of nautical movies Then there is the fact the entire house consisted solely of lighthouse, seashell and boat decor It is no wonder that the marine lifestyle is frequently on my mind. This makes it completely natural, at least...

  • U Bolts and Shapes

    Walking into my parents garage, I can typically find boxes of nuts and bolts. They are in many ways a just in case' item. You never really know when you might need them. At our house there were a lot of extras of all sizes from when my parents helped a friend with building their house. However, one bolt that we do not typically have a ton of spares for is the U bolt. These bolts are constructed to be in the shape of a U, naturally that is where...

Industry Information

U Bolts

U bolts are suspension bolts that are bent into the shape of a U with threads at both ends. They are classified as round, square or semi-round U-bolts according to the shape of the ‘U’. Round U bolts are actually U-shaped and are the most commonly used type of U bolt.

Minus the round U bolt, there are two other varieties: Square U bolts are shaped like three sides of a rectangle with rounded corners and semi-round U bolts, in contrast to these, have a shallower curve than round U bolts. These are typically supplied with fasteners which are used to secure the threaded ends of the bolt. Depending on the application, a U bolt may be used in conjunction with a strap which aids in securing or leveling the bolt to its load. The most commonly used materials include steel – either zinc plated or stainless steel, as well as aluminum. U bolts are used in situations in which suspended items need to be attached to the surface of components, or to pipes and other curved or rounded surfaces. Industrial bolts are seen commonly in construction and automotive manufacturing and as such need to be made of strong and long-lasting materials. They are also available in a number of different sizes and may be measured with imperial or metric units.

U bolts may be made of a number of different materials, but the most common material used tends to be stainless steel. It is structurally strong and durable, allowing it to be used for heavy duty applications with high load carrying capacity requirements. Stainless steel is also corrosion resistant and so can be used for applications with exposure to moisture or other extreme elements. Other materials can have corrosion resistance added through a variety of coatings, such as zinc or polymers. Metric bolts are more common, as both domestic and international auto manufacturers use metric units to classify the measurements of bolts. These measurements can be in terms of leg or U length, thread length, radius and diameter of the pipe and the curve, as well as pitch measurements. Tensile strength is a major requirement for U-bolts and the required strength will help to determine the best materials and dimensions for the construction of the bolt. Traditionally, U-bolts were formed from hot forging processes which then cut threads onto the ends. More modern methods however use cold-drawn wire to create threads, allowing for a smoother surface and higher strength levels.
