Marine Eye Bolts 8 x 100mm Pack of 5
Thread not M8
As others have noted, the thread is not M8 (standard M8 nuts do not fit the thread - really odd).
Used for a swing and works well however would have been good to know the load strength just to be sure (used 4 on the swing and seems safe enough),

These may well be made from 8mm rod , but the thread is definately not M8 . I have 2 M8 dies (M8 x 1.0mm and M8 x1.25mm ) Neither of them fit ! So if you want to use a back nut you are going to have a problem as only 1 nut is supplied per eye bolt !

Marine eye bolts
Great strong product offering secure anchorage which in my case they were used for securing a garden swing.

Metric to Imperial Problem
I have purchase two lots of this product at four week intervals. The first packet was 8mm diaimeter the second lot 1/4" imperial. Both packets are labled 8 x 100mm. Hereby lies the problem! There is also confusion about the diameter in the ScrewFix catalogue / website.
