I am very happy with the cross bolt and bolt from Rockler. It simplified construction of the crib I made. Assembly was a consideration.

Black oxide connector bolts
I had to replace some stripped out and missing connector bolts on a couple of nice mid-century modern sling chairs from a doctor's office when the doc retired. The bolts work great and look very professional. Thanks Rockler!!!!

Woodworking Experience:
They are a little hard to fit and "not" cross-thread. Once accomplished they did the job I intended and looked according to the design vision.

Wish these were longer for joining two 3/4" bookshelf sides together. At 1 1/8" it will barely fit into the cap nut which is only 11/16" long. There is an unthreaded "tip" on the bolt. So I figure only about 3/16" of threads will engage. Wish they were longer - like 1 5/16". I ordered these because I did not feel like cutting down the next size longer 2" bolt.

Looking for a drill bit for connector bolts that will drill the countersink for the head and the shaft in one operation without over-drilling the depth for the head?

i want to join two sheets of 3/4" plywood together face to face. This will hold a headboard onto a bed. Will these do, and how long do my screws need to be?
anna m on Mar 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 1 1/4' should work
what is the size and thread count for this bolt?
Chief on May 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This connector bolt is 1/4 inch, 20 threads per inch.

It is available in 5 lengths from 1-1/8 inch to 4-3/4 inches.
do you have bolt for connecting rails to headboard, I need 3/8" diameter 4" length?
christine R on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately that item is not available from Rockler.
are these ok to use to join side rails of a bed to the head board?
Steve B on Mar 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I do not think so. I think these connector bolts are only 1/4". There are bolts made for connecting rails to headboards. I think those would be at least 3/8".
can these be used on outside furniture?
sjames on Apr 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Functionally, I can see no problem using them outside. If scratched they may rust, but they could easily be recoated if that was the case.
I live in Michigan, winters are harsh, but I would use them if I had furniture that I wanted to break down each year for storage.
If I am trying to join dimensional lumber, specifically two 2x6 it would have a total thickness of 3". So what size connector bolts would I need? Thanks.
jmgjr on Jan 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used the 2" to connect multiple leaning shelves into one wall unit. The units were made of 1" dimensional lumber. It's easy to order up a size and trim the 1/4"-20 threads with either a grinder, hacksaw. If you really want to go custom, grab some 1/4"-20 allthread and some of the Rockler "Cap Nuts for Connector Bolts".
Could these be used to screw an inside staircase railing to a post? Instead of a finishing washer and screw?
