Shoulder Bolts


A shoulder bolt is a specially designed fastener that contains a threadless section on the shank of the bolt, which is referred to as the shoulder. Shoulder bolts provide a smooth surface that can be press fit into your application or remain loose within the application when rotation is required. Shoulder bolts can also be used as a stand-off when there is a distance requirement between the mating surface and the underside of the fastener head.

The Benefits of Precision Engineered Shoulder Bolts

Shoulder bolts have a multitude of uses in commercial and industrial applications. One use is to bolt a wheel to the frame or chassis of a product while still allowing the wheel to turn freely. Another use is to press fit the shoulder bolt into a bushing or bearing, allowing for free movement of the connected components. Typically, this application requires a tighter tolerance shoulder commonly referred to as a ground shoulder bolt.
