Shoulder bolts, also known as stripper bolts, are a type of fastener that are commonly used in griddle applications. In griddles, shoulder bolts are often used to secure heating elements, grates, and other parts in place.
Grill bolts, on the other hand, are specifically designed for use in grills and are used to secure the grates and other parts of the grill in place. Unlike shoulder bolts, grill bolts have a rounded head that fits into a corresponding rounded slot in the grill parts. This allows for easy installation and removal of the grates for cleaning and maintenance. Grill bolts are typically made from stainless steel to withstand the high heat and corrosive elements that are present in grilling applications.
Both shoulder bolts and grill bolts play a crucial role in griddle and grill applications, providing the necessary securement and support for the various parts.
