Hammers, Hangers and Bolts

A very full section over THREE pages, because bolting presents a lot of choices! Here you'll find the hardware for placing bolts; then various sizes and types of hangers for most occasions; and then the bolts which actually anchor the hangers to the rock. Finally you'll find some of our multi-item deals, BUT if you want to buy more significant numbers of anything, contact us directly by e-mail. We're happy to help!
