Eye Bolts are used to attach a securing eye to a structure, so that slings or other hardware can be attached for lifting. Eye Bolts are load rated and made from forged steel that has been quenched and tempered. Bishop Lifting offers Regular Eyebolts along with Shoulder Eye Bolts, and Shoulder Type Machinery Eye Bolts. All of our eye bolts meet or exceed the requirements of ASME B30.26 including identification, ductility, design factor, proof load, and temperature requirements.
Shouldered- Eye Bolts with a shoulder can be used for angular lifting as long as the shoulder is properly seated. You need to check the manufacturers information to see how much capacity is lost a different angles of loading.
Non-Shouldered- Eye Bolts with no shoulder can only be used for completely vertical or inline lifts. They are not designed for side or angular loading.
