Stainless Steel Bolts are used in conjunction with a female thread; either a tapped thread or type of nut and often with washers to hold two objects together. As the nut is tightened along the thread of the bolt, the bolt “stretches” and applies a clamping force on the two objects holding them together.  Over tightening the nut can cause the thread to strip and tightening torques can vary slightly depending upon the application.  Stainless Steel threads should be lubricated to avoid 'Stainless Thread Galling'.
