Rated 3 out of 5 by from Marine Eye Bolts 6 x 40mm Most of the previous (23) reviews of this product are very positive, and many five-star ratings appear at the top of the customer reviews list. What I don’t understand though is why I had to scroll quite a way down this list (which unfortunately, I didn’t do prior to purchasing this product) to find out from some other reviewers that the shank thread of this product is definitely not “M6”, which important fact was not mentioned in the earlier ‘five-star’ reviews. This was probably because these later reviewers just used the single nut per eye bolt which is supplied in the 5-piece pack, and so never realised the threads on this “M6 product” are not, in fact, “M6”! I should have thought it would be rare to be using the product with only one, non-locking, nut per eye bolt however, whilst in my particular case I bought these bolts to screw into existing M6-threaded blind-tapped holes. Which they didn’t, of course, fit! When I realised this was the case I deduced that the eye bolts were most probably sourced from the ‘still using Imperial measures’ USA markets and that accordingly I would not be able to find any (further) ‘imperial’ nuts, stainless or otherwise, which would fit the product (which in my particular case didn’t, in fact, matter much anyway since I wanted to screw the eye bolts into pre-tapped M6-thread blind holes) and because my personal ‘nuts and bolts’ stock is now all-metric. Also, as some other reviewers have pointed out, Screwfix only sell metric threaded nuts! I found that one of the earlier reviewers (whose post was well down the list) confirmed, my initial suspicion: trekie Yate said: "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." Quite so! In addition to the above pretty major problem the supplied washers appeared to be “M8” (or the imperial equivalent of “M8”) and so were far too big to fit snugly over the ‘nominal 6mm’ eye bolt shanks! Also, when I checked up on other Screwfix-supplied eye bolts in my stock I found that non were, in fact, ‘as advertised’. A BZP version of the stainless “M6” bolts being reviewed here, also described by Screwfix as “M6”, was also, I found, not metric-threaded! As I have noticed other reviewing customers saying the same thing about the ‘M8’ eye bolts they had purchased I have concluded that ALL Screwfix eye bolts are ‘imperial’ and not ‘metric’ products. Since Screwfix’s specification notes for all their eye bolts are, it seems, very misleading may I suggest that Screwfix rectify this serious specification oversight ASAP!

What is the break load/max load for this item. I want to build a garden swing seat but want to know whether its a 1300kg breakload or less?

Hi, is 80 mm the overall length?

Asked by: Kevjhip633
Hello, Just had our warehouse check this item and they have the measurements for the shaft at 80mm and the full length at 114mm. Hope this helps

Please can you confirm the diameter of the eye, and thread! I am guessing 6mm or does this refer to the thread size? I look forward to your reply

Asked by: Jaston

Are nuts included? If not, which do I need?

The webpage says "Fixings not supplied" - does this mean the nut that is on the photo is not included? If so, which nuts do I need? The customer feedback suggests that you sometimes send out 8mm diaimeter and sometimes 1/4" imperial.
Asked by: DavidIB
Answering my own question, cos I decided to order them anyway: They DO include a nut and separate washer. and the ones they sent me appear to be M8 diameter. BTW, the 100mm refers to the length of the straight section. The head (or 'eye') adds about 35mm more to the length.
