Is there a difference between a 1/4 inch x 20 bolt and 1/4x2 bolt? Answered

I'm trying to make a camera neck strap using parcord and one of these bolts.

The usual size bolt for camera attachment is a standard size 1/4 inch diameter with 20 threads per inch. The 1/4 x 2 might be referring to a standard size 1/4 inch bolt that is 2 inches long. Always gently test fit to the camera and get a good quality bolt to use for your build since the machining could be rough or coated/plated making it not fit right into the nut. Add a wingnut and washer to snug up any excess length. Good luck and show us what you make.
