Carriage Bolts are commonly used for fastening wood into metal, originally these bolts were used to secure the traces to carriages drawn by horses, hence their name.
This type of bolt features a round head with a square neck immediately below the head. As a result, these bolts are designed to be self locking when the square neck is secured, using a spanner, into a square hole or into softer materials such as wood.
