Welcome to Zipbolt

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.

Side Ratchet Tool

23 Feb

The Side Ratchet Tool is an excellent accessory to the 13.950 Angled Slipfix Railbolt, it accomodates a Hex Bit and levers with a ratchet action either forward or reverse. As the Angled Slipfix is designed for the upstairs rail to post joint the angle is always closed and restrictive and can not be tightened with a power tool or regular screwdriver.  An Allen key can be used however this tool makes tensioning so much faster and easier working and offers good leverage and can be used for other applications, a great item to have in the tool box.

New Angled Slipfix Railbolt

21 Nov


This is the latest model connector for stair assembly and in particular the upstairs angle joint. Using a key hole shape in a metal disc which is fitted into the post and a bent angled shaft with a head to engage the disc so it is an easy connection. The connector relies on the Zipbolt gear housing to tighten and close the joint with not many turns needed, it is best done with a side ratchet tool using it with a 5mm hex bit. This product will be available in a single pack with instructions in a poly bag as well as in a twin blister pack  containing a driver and 2 wood plugs.

The approach we recommend in fastening the rail will be to use the 11.550 Angled Railbolt in the downstairs joint which will be self supporting of the rail and then use the Angled Slipfix Railbolt in the  upstairs joint. 

Just to update, this model is now in stock and available
