ZIPBOLT™ Carpentry, Joinery & Woodwork Accessories

Connectors for the furniture industry

Zipbolt Pty Ltd is an Australian company with a focus on innovative and original solutions for a wide range of woodworking industries, born out of the need to save time and ease of use.

The first place that Zipbolt focused was on easy joining of worktops /countertops and bench tops, this previously frustrating job is now made simple by using the UT connectors or Drawbolts and driving them with a power drill and hex bit or hand driver.

The stair industry has also benefited with a number of models developed for joining hand rails, fittings and newel posts, the UT Railbolt has made the task of joining hand rails and fittings especially straight forward.

The UT Mitre joint connectors are really in a league of their own as no other mitre bolts can offer such forgiveness in the boring centre distance, allowing recutting of angles and mitre adjustment.

The Zipbolt UT – KD/ST types allow very strong butt joints to be assembled suited perfectly for bed, table, furniture assembly and general joinery and woodworking.

Other Zipbolt products include the Fastfit a one piece KD connector as well as the Daisy Catch, an original innovative cabinet catch or removable panel catch.

Our range has continued to grow as new applications are discovered for Zipbolt Technology and we continue to supply product to an increasing number of countries where we are recognized as leaders in our field.

Zipbolt UT 13.500/13.520

Zipbolt UT 13.500 – ST Maxi (8x90mm)

Zipbolt UT 13.520 – ST Midi (6x90mm)

The NEW die cast “Open Channel” housing is a major development by Zipbolt which allows the housing to be placed over the shaft easily engaging the thread and positioning the housing at the right height even if the hole was bored too deep. A reduced housing size also permits the housing to travel within the accommodating (25mm) hole tightening the joint while the two wood members are already connected. In conjunction with dowels and liquid adhesives, the KD/ST ZIPBOLT allows legs and rails or furniture components to be assembled at once, rather than assembled in parts over several days whilst the adhesive bonds, greatly increasing production efficiency.

Super UT 14.100 – Post Fastener (12x278mm)

The Super UT Newel Fastener is designed for the stair builders that require powerful anchoring of the newel post to the ground or floor and using the Zipbolt UT drive technology makes for fast and easy tightening. The 280mm X 11mm shaft is an impressive size which features a flattened section for a wrench or spanner so that it can be wound into the floor if it is wood or in the case of a concrete floor it can be chemically anchored. This connector allows the installer to pull the post down to the floor producing a rigid post, with the Super UT it is always possible to centre the bolt in the middle of the newel post and using a hex bit in a power drill or allen key simply tighten down.
