Carriage bolts or coach bolts are manufactured with a rounded head and a square shoulder that resists turning when its conjoining nuts are tightened or removed. The carriage bolt’s unique shape provides self-locking functionality when placed in a square or round hole of most woods, making it the ideal fastener for a wide range of wood-to-wood and wood-to-metal connections.
