It is distinguished from other bolts by its shallow mushroom head and the fact that the cross-section of the shank, though circular for most of its length (as in other kinds of bolt), is square immediately beneath the head. This makes the bolt self-locking when it is placed through a square hole in a metal strap. This allows the fastener to be installed with only one tool, a spanner or wrench, working from one side. The head of a carriage bolt usually is a shallow dome. The shank has no threads; and its diameter equals the side of the square cross-section.
