Carriage bolts are designed for through-bolting where the bolt's square neck is used to keep the bolt from turning as a nut is tightened on the other end. Using a carriage bolt will really clean up the appearance of your outdoor projects-like deck furniture, decks and docks. Available in marine grade Hot-Dipped Galvanized for corrosion resistance.
Carriage bolts were originally designed to attach the wheels to the axles of carriages during the 17th and 18th centuries. The best way to install a carriage bolt is to insert it into the pre-drilled hole and tap the bolt so the head is flush with the surface. Fasten with a flat washer, a lock washer, and a nut. The lock washer stops the bolt from loosening, but you can also add an additional nut and tighten the two nuts together.

MET / STD:
do the washers and nuts come with this? if not can you show me where to get them?
No. My project didn't need them. If Jamestown Dost doesn't sell them, I assume Home Depot does.
Nuts yes, washers no. They can be bought from Jamestown as well.
No they don't. if you scroll down the page a bit you should see both the nuts and washers.
Is this 7-inch carriage bolt (3/8-16 thread) fully threaded (e.g., no shank), like a Shaker Screen Bolt?thanks.
I bought these bolts a while ago. My recollection is that they were all threads as shown in the picture.
Hard to find bolt at a good price!
Hey, its a carriage bolt! But the nuts did thread smoothly!
