Rated 4 out of 5Â by DIY4DEL Not metric!
As previously mentioned the thread on this eye bolt is not M6. I needed a lock nut so bought a pack of M6 nuts to find they didn't fit. I ended up going to a specialist supplier and found the thread to be 1/4 UNC. Hence one star for features!

The catalogue description is incorrect because it indicates the thread being a M6 which is not correct, the thread is actually a 1/4" x 20 BSW (whitworth) therefore if you require any extra nuts to fit the eye bolt you will have to source them elsewhere because Screwfix don't stock Whitworth pitch nuts.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Gadgetgeorge Good but two poor features
I purchased this pack of 5 eye bolts for a DIY project. They do the job well but BEWARE the thread does is not as long as is shown in the picture and I wanted a back nut as well but of all the various nuts that I have, not one was of the correct thread. You will have to purchase additional nuts of the correct thread.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by StevePYB Eye bolts - thread
Good product - but be aware thread is not metric, I had assumed they were M6 (the shaft is 6mm). This detail is not in the specification.
Only one nut per bolt and no flange at end of thread. so to fit onto sheet material you will need to know what the thread is in order to fit a second nut, unless the fitting is always under tension.
Don't know about reliability yet but not in a sea water environment so should be OK.
