- also referred to as carriage or cup head bolts, available galvanized or in stainless steel and in diameters from 6mm to 30mm and lengths from 19mm to 600mm. The underside of the head is specially designed to embed itself into timber and enable the nut to be tightened using only one tool, and for where there is limited access to the head end of the bolt. Washers are available in various types including round with round hole, round with square hole, square with round hole and square with square hole.
