About Square U Bolts

You are ready to take your boat back to the water now that the last frost is over, but as you prepare for the journey, you realize that your fasteners are nowhere to be found. Fortunately, square U-bolts are not difficult to replace, and you can be back on the water in no time after selecting what you need from the vast inventory on eBay. In addition to square U-bolts, round and semi-round fasteners are convenient for use with boat trailers and other applications. They are excellent to keep around the house for home improvement projects, especially if you have to tackle the plumbing system or delve into the structure of the attic. If you need a specific size, such as square 1/2-inch U-bolts, pay special attention to the dimensions. Since sellers frequently describe U-bolts using different qualifiers, it can be difficult to be sure that you have found the right product. For marine applications, look for corrosion-resistant U-bolts that can withstand the moist conditions around the water. Rust and other contaminants can shorten the life of your fasteners.
