Double Arming Bolt

Double arming bolts are used in double crossarm construction to secure and lock in the spacing between the wooden crossarms. Double arming bolts are fully threaded to offer a wider range of adjustment for the crossarms, as well as the ability to fasten additional components or wooden members by simply adding additional hardware within the body of the bolt. Double arming bolts are normally supplied with four square nuts assembled and each end has a semi-cone point added for easy field installation. The length call out does not include the semi-cone point ends.
