What Are Hex Bolts?
Hex bolts are commonly referred to as "machine bolts," and these devices fasten objects together using a nut or tapped hole. These pieces of hardware are ideal in situations where you have access to both sides of a base material or connection for fastening. The hex bolts on our online store feature six-sided heads and drive into place with a wrench or socket-tool for stability and long-term mounting support.
Hex bolts are an excellent route for builders with all levels of experience, as these fasteners are fully removable and install in seconds using common tools. Easily assemble equipment onsite or use the hardware to secure objects made of wood and steel. Look no further than our one-stop shop for metric hex bolts in stainless steel and zinc-plated finishes for corrosion resistance both indoors and out.
Benefits of Metric Hex Head Bolts
The experts at FMW Fasteners want to help you with all your professional and personal projects, and we are confident you will find our hex bolts user-friendly. These products also install flush with base material surfaces for a clean appearance. Whether you choose a fully threaded or partially threaded design, you can expect substantial fastening results that stand up to vibration and changing temperatures year-round.
Metric hex head bolts are appealing to our customers because the units drop down into pre-drilled holes and tapped holes for accuracy. Instead of relying on wood or metal screws to grip base materials, hex bolts stay in place as long as you have a compatible nut. You can achieve increased torsion power installing with a wrench versus a standard screwdriver or drill attachment.
Installing Hex Bolts
The process for installing a hex bolt starts with aligning the items you wish to mount or fasten together. Decide how many bolts you will need to complete the project, and mark drill points with a pencil. Attach the appropriate drill bit for your materials, then drill a pilot hole for the hex bolt threading to pass through.
Push your hex bolt through the opening, and make sure to place a washer and nut on the threading. Use your fingers to tighten the nut until the washer makes contact with the base material. Repeat these steps for each hex bolt you have, and use a socket wrench to fasten the fixture together until you feel some resistance.
When installing hex bolts into tapped holes, installations take seconds to complete. Simply line up the items you wish to fasten and guide hex bolts through threaded inserts with a socket wrench.
