Detail & Specs
Hanger bolts have machine threading on one end and wood/lag tapping screw threading on the other. Popular for suspending construction wiring or metal assemblies from wood.
Some hanger bolt sizes have a spanner surface / unthreaded shank portion between the two thread types.
Stainless steel hanger bolts are commonly used in damp or wet environments for corrosion resistance. For any application involving marine (salt water), use A4 / 316 Stainless Steel material, available as a special order.
Applications include furniture or cabinet knobs and pulls, drapery or curtain tie-backs, ceiling suspensions, substrates for affixing solar panels. Also known as dowel screw.
