Long Tangent U-Bolt, Plated
Long tangent u-bolts are bolts bent in the shape of the letter U with machine threads on both ends that nuts can be threaded onto in order to fasten the u-bolt. Long tangent refers to the length of the straight leg portion of the u-bolt which specifies the height of the u-bolt. Since u-bolts have primarily been used to support pipes through which fluids and gases pass, u-bolts are called out by the size of pipe. In addition to supporting pipes, u-bolts have a wide range of uses such as securing tubing, roundbar, wood or steel posts, and can be embedded into concrete as anchor bolts. U-bolts are designed to be inserted into pre-drilled or punched holes. Made from carbon steel with a zinc plated finish. Zinc plating sacrifices itself, corroding before the base material, offering added corrosion resistance.
