About Thread Pitch and Thread Count Bolt Depot

Metric fasteners are specified with a thread pitch instead of a thread count The thread pitch is the distance between threads expressed in millimeters measured along the length of the fastener For example a thread pitch of 1 5 means that the distance between one thread and the next is 1 5mm In general smaller fasteners have finer thread so they have lower thread pitch
