Pigtail eyebolts are threaded at one end for the attachment of an expansion unit. The other end is hot worked to form a pigtail eyebolt for suspension of air, water, refrigeration and ventilation columns as well as for electrical telephone cable and chain type handrails.

 

APPLICATIONS 

They are recommended for the suspension of air, water, refrigeration and ventilation columns, as well as for electrical and telephone cables and chain type handrails.

They are not recommended for heavier duty usage such as snatch block rigging or the support of platforms.

 

LENGTHS

Pigtail eyebolts are available in standard lengths as shown in the table below. Lengths are measured to below the twist.

THREADS 

A cold-rolling process forms all threads.

The pigtail eye is hot formed for better mechanical properties.

The following standard thread types are available: Metric (right hand only) – M16 x 2 – 8g and M20 x 2.5 – 8g.
