Anyone know what this bolt is called?

I'm trying to help out someone who need to order a bunch of these.

Thanks

I don't know, but it would be helpful to know what it is used for.

What's the other side look like, Bruce?

it looks a little like the pivot bolt used is small wire pliers that allows the jaws to slip over from one hole to another to open wider where the double pivot holes are sort of figure 8 shaped. I doubt they would be brass however, but those have flat sides exactly like the one pictured.

Sorry, the picture is all the info I have.
No biggie.

My hunch is this bolt has something to do with plumbing..... oil, water or gas.

I would send the pic to McMaster Carr customer service and ask them. http://www.mcmaster.com/#contact/=uhdbw1

Maybe it has a rubber washer and loosening it allows a fluid (water?) to flow past it...hence the channels cut in each side.

Bruce, Thanks for posting that info here..I didn't think of it
I'm the one looking for the bolt.
It's used as part of the hinge system for a steel casement window.
It's 1" tall with a 0.35 diameter shaft.
I did send a picture to several bolt suppliers and manufactures, including McMaster-Carr.
No luck from any of them.
I know I can make them myself , which is what I had to do in the past.
Thanks for the responses and Thanks again to Bruce...
Michael

Makes sense...maybe to drain water? Normally, I see threads cut like that for lubrication channels. It's the exact opposite of a split bolt...yet another oddball looking screw :)

Is this bolt really brass? That doesn't strike me as strong enough if I understand its purpose correctly.

I think there are washers called "non-turn" washers in several variations, but I couldn't find a Non-turn bolt or anything that sounded like it-even "flat sided bolt".
