How to size a U Bolt
Generally speaking u bolts are bought and sold based on the nominal bore (NB) size. Nominal bore (NB) refers to the approximate inner diameter (ID) of a pipe, tube or round bar. It is a standard measurement used in the pipe industry to indicate the size of a pipe. Simply match the NB size to the size of your pipe, tube or round bar. For example, a 20mm pipe would require a 20NB u bolt. A 50mm tube would require a 50NB u bolt. All measurements read Diameter of bolt x inside width x leg length.
