Smooth Round Head Bolt Similiar to Carriage Bolt

I'm looking for a bolt with a smooth round head with NO DRIVE similar to a carriage bolt but without the square neck. Does something like this exist and if so what is it called??

Not sure I've seen what you need...but you could easily modify regular carriage bolts. Might reduce the strength a bit.

Whats the usage?

Its for an arcade cabinet. I would use these bolts to secure the joysticks under the metal control panel. Carriage bolts wouldn't work with the round holes drilled in the control panel. I want a low profile smooth bolt head because its going to be exposed on the topside.

Behold the ascii art of what I'm doing . The "+" represent the four bolts through the corners of the joystick and control panel.

I did a search on "dome head bolts" and this is one of the many hits:

Dome Head Bolt Packs - Pro-Bolt USA Hardware - Titanium, Stainless Steel, Aluminum Fasteners for Metric Motorcycles & Harley-Davidson

Hope this helps. Good luck with your project.

Talking Mickie

Try a ribbed neck carriage bolt, has no drive , has no square.
Ribbed on upper shank to hold in place.

Hope this helps.
