L Bolt

Have you ever heard of an L Bolt before? If not, you’re not alone; many people are unfamiliar with this particular type of bolt and what it is used for. Let’s discuss the basics of L Bolts and how they can be used in various projects.

What is  L-Bolt?

An L Bolt is a type of fastener that has been shaped like the letter “L” when viewed from the side. It consists of two components: a threaded rod and a nut that fits over the rod. The threaded rod is screwed into the material through which it will be secured, such as wood or metal, while the nut serves to hold the bolt in place. The nuts typically have three knurled sides, making them easy to grip for tightening purposes.

L-Bolts Uses

L Bolts are most commonly used in carpentry, cabinetmaking, and general construction applications. They are often seen in furniture assembly, where they are used to attach legs or other components to chairs, tables, shelves, or other pieces of furniture. They can also be used to secure fixtures such as door handles and hinges on wood frames or cabinets. In construction applications, they may be used to secure siding materials or roofing systems to walls or rafters. Additionally, they can be used in plumbing applications to secure pipes against walls or floors.
