A bolt is a form of threaded fastener with an external male thread requiring a matching pre-formed female thread such as a nut. Bolts are very closely related to screws. The distinction between a bolt and a screw is poorly-defined. The academic distinction, per Machinery's Handbook ,  is in their intended design: bolts are designed to pass through an unthreaded hole in a component and be fastened with the aid of a nut , although such a fastener can be used without a nut to tighten into a threaded component such as a nut-plate or tapped housing. Screws in contrast are used in components which contain their own thread, or to cut its own internal thread into them. This definition allows ambiguity in the description of a fastener depending on the application it is actually used for, and the terms screw and bolt are widely used by different people or in different countries to apply to the same or varying fastener.

Bolted joints. Bolted connections are widely used in almost every mechanical and structural system due to the added flexibility of assembly and disassembly of sub-systems for inspection, replacement, and routine maintenance. A bolted connection often constitutes the weakest link in the design; in many cases, the bolted connection can be responsible for determining the overall reliability and safety of an entire system.

Bolted joints are one of the most common elements in construction and machine design.
