ASTM A307-Grade A
Carriage bolts are used to fasten metal to timber. The square shoulder under the rounded head helps hold the bolt in place once tightened. Carriage bolts come in a variety of sizes and materials such as:
Zinc-plated: Better corrosion resistance Grade 5 Steel: Most commonly used in automotive industry Stainless Steel 18-8: Most common in hardware. Comprised of 18% chromium and 8% nickel Hot dipped galvanized: Thickest coating offering high corrosion resistance Silicone bronze: Primarily used in marine environments because of its superior corrosion resistance.

Carriage bolts with UNRC-2A threads can be furnished in two different styles: square-neck carriage bolts in diameters from 1/4″ to
3/4″, inclusive and short square-neck carriage bolts in diameters from 1/4″ to 5/8″ inclusive.
Dimensional data for both styles are shown below.
Minimum Thread Length
The formula for determining thread length is, Bolts 6″ and shorter, 2 diameters plus 1/4″. Bolts over 6″ 2 diameters plus 1/2″. If bolts
are too short to apply the formula, the thread will be extended as close to head as possible.
