About products and suppliers

U bolts are widely used in construction, automotive, and specialized settings. These distinctive "U" shaped fasteners are designed to secure pipes, tubes, cables, and other cylindrical objects to a flat surface.

What are common applications of U-bolts?

Support U-Bolts can be used in pipe and tube supports to secure pipes and tubes to walls, beams, or other structural components in plumbing, HVAC, and industrial systems. They are used in exhaust systems in the automotive and industrial contexts to secure exhaust pipes to the chassis or frame of a vehicle or machine. Suspension systems U-bolts are used for vehicles, securing leaf springs or other components to the axles and frames. Other usages of U-bolts include boat trailer brackets, cable clamps, conduit support, antennae mounts etc.

What are some special varieties of U-bolts?

U-bolts made for special purposes include high-temperature U-bolts made of materials that can withstand extreme temperatures, particularly suitable for petrochemical, aerospace, and automotive applications.

Galvanized U-bolts are corrosion resistance U-bolts which are used in outdoor or marine applications, where they need to withstand harsh weather conditions and sustained exposure to moisture.

Stainless steel U-bolts are highly resistant to corrosion and rust, applicable in marine environments, food processing, and anywhere else where corrosion resistance is essential.

A square U-bolts with a plate may be used for securing square objects and preventing rotation.

Cushioned U-bolts are protected with rubber or plastic cushions or lining to minimize vibrations and noise. Riser U-bolts are designed with an extended leg or riser for greater clearance between the U-bolt and the secured object. Muffler clamp U-bolts are specifically designed for securing mufflers in automotive exhaust systems. These are generally coated with a heat-resistant material to withstand high temperatures. Concrete U-bolts are designed for attaching objects to concrete surfaces, and these typically come with special threaded ends for concrete anchors and are used in construction and infrastructure projects. Suspension U-bolts are designed for use in the vehicles suspension systems and are made to withstand heavy loads and road conditions, and are adjustable so they can easily secure leaf springs, axles, and related components.

Are brass or aluminum U bolts durable?

The durability of aluminum U-bolts made from brass or aluminum depends on the specific application and the environmental conditions. Brass is a corrosion-resistant material, but it may not be good choice for U-bolt applications where high strength or heavy loads are involved. Aluminum is lightweight and also corrosion-resistant, which is why aluminum U-bolts are often used in applications where weight is a concern, such as in the aerospace industry.

On, you can browse the wares of a wide range of suppliers specializing in fasteners for precision or miniature applications with metallic U-bolts. Suppliers may offer a range of miniature U-bolts or similar fasteners specifically designed for very small-scale applications. You will find all kinds of U-bolts for sale at competitive prices, and you can get particularly good deals when you buy in bulk.
