These are the more unusual u bolts we have supplied over the years - they are custom fully threaded u bolts. Typically only a partial length of each leg is threaded, whether cut threads or rolled, but in this case our customer specifically requested a fully threaded version. 1,000 pieces were run through a domestic production process with a lead time of 3-4 weeks. 4-40 thread was incorporated with the inside width at .57 inches and inside length at .75 inches.

These are custom chrome plated screws made using the barrel plating process done domestically in the USA. They are type A sheet metal screws made in 316 stainless steel material specifically to our customer's print. The overall process to manufacture the screws and to get them barrel chrome plated took approximately 12 weeks. Depending on the volume involved we can work out the ideal domestic or overseas strategy for any chrome plated parts, both RoHS and non-RoHS compliant.
