Do your eyes glaze over at all the metric bolt choices? We know it can be kind of confusing, especially if you’re not used to ordering metric parts. Let’s look at the meaning of some common terms in the world of “bolt-ology.”
Bolts have different heads that identify their use for different applications. Hex bolts, for instance are simply bolts that have a hexagonal, or six-sided shape to their head. These bolts may have threads extending either halfway or all the way down the shaft and generally require nuts and washers to hold themselves in place. Flange bolts are instantly identifiable by a flat flange that somewhat resembles a washer peeking out from underneath the head but is actually part of the head itself. The flange grips onto the substrate and distributes the clamping force across it just as a washer would, saving you the need for that separate part.

Let’s examine why all these metric drives exist and how they function.
