Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
Old English bolt "short, stout arrow with a heavy head;" also "crossbow for throwing bolts," from Proto-Germanic *bultas (cognates: Old Norse bolti, Danish bolt, Dutch bout, German Bolzen), perhaps from PIE root *bheld- "to knock, strike" (cognates: Lithuanian beldu "I knock," baldas "pole for striking").\n
\nApplied since Middle English to other short metal rods (especially those with knobbed ends). From the notion of an arrow's flight comes the lightning bolt (1530s). A bolt of canvas (c.1400) was so called for its shape. Adverbial phrase bolt upright is from late 14c.
from bolt (n.) in its various senses; from a crossbow arrow's quick flight comes the meaning "to spring, to make a quick start" (early 13c.). Via the notion of runaway horses, this came to mean "to leave suddenly" (early 19c.). Meaning "to gulp down food" is from 1794. The meaning "to secure by means of a bolt" is from 1580s. Related: Bolted; bolting.

Bolt or bolts may refer to:
While bolts are commonplace in rock and gym climbing there is no universal vocabulary to describe them. Generally, a bolt hanger is a combination of a fixed bolt and a specialized stainless steel hanger designed to accept a carabiner, whereas in certain regions a bolt runner describes a hangerless bolt (where the climber must provide their own hanger bracket and lock nut).
Bolts are also used both in aid climbing to actively aid ascent and sport climbing as a backup to catch a fall, where resting on or using one's protection to aid ascent is regarded as poor form.
Bolt is a 2008 American computer animated road- comedy- adventure film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. It is the studio's 48th animated feature. Directed by Chris Williams and Byron Howard, the film stars the voices of John Travolta, Miley Cyrus, Malcolm McDowell, Diedrich Bader, Nick Swardson, Greg Germann, Susie Essman and Mark Walton. The film's plot centers on a small white dog named Bolt who, having spent his entire life on the set of a television series, thinks that he has super powers. When he believes that his human, Penny, has been kidnapped, he sets out on a cross-country journey to "rescue" her.
Despite a relatively marginal box-office performance, Bolt received a strong positive critical reception and is renowned for playing an important role in instigating what is widely referred to as the Disney Revival, as well as setting the studio in a new creative direction that would lead to other critically acclaimed features such as Tangled (2010) and Frozen (2013). Bolt was also Disney Animation's first feature film to be produced under the complete creative guidance of John Lasseter, as well as the first computer-animated feature film to implement non-photorealistic rendering.
The film was nominated for a series of awards, such as the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, which it lost to another Walt Disney Pictures release, Pixar Animation Studios' WALL-E.
A bolt is a mechanical part of a firearm that blocks the rear of the chamber while the propellant burns, but moves out of the way to allow another cartridge or shell to be inserted in the chamber.

It was acquired by new owners on January 4, 2008 and operated successfully for several months before announcing plans to go offline in October 2008.
Bolt is a video game available for PC, Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Nintendo DS, and Microsoft Windows. It is based on the Disney film of the same name. It was released in North America on November 18, 2008. It was released in Australia on December 4, 2008. It was released in Europe on February 13, 2009. The video game was developed by Avalanche Software and published by Disney Interactive.

Bolt is a 1994 drama film starring Richard Grieco in the title role as a New Jersey biker. After fleeing west to escape a gang war, Bolt becomes romantically involved with Native American Patty Deerheart ( Sean Young), and is compelled to battle to protect her family from a land runner. The appearance of former gang rival Billy Niles ( Michael Ironside) on the reservation causes the conflict to escalate into a violent climax. It was released on DVD as Rebel Run in 1999.
The movie received generally poor reviews, and Sean Young later said that the cast referred to the film as "Blot".
A bolt is a unit of measurement used as an industry standard for a variety of materials from wood to canvas, typically materials stored in a roll. The length is usually either 40 or 100 yards, but varies depending on the fabric being referred to, for example, a bolt of canvas is traditionally 39 yards. The width of a bolt is usually 45 or 60 inches, but widths may include 35–36”, 39”, 41”, 44–45”, 50”, 52–54", 58–60” and 66”, 72", 96", and 108".

A bolt is a form of threaded fastener with an external male thread. Bolts are thus closely related to, and often confused with, screws.
Bolt is a fictional White Shepherd and the eponymous protagonist of the 2008 animated feature film Bolt. In the film, he is voiced by John Travolta. His journey and the personal evolution it provokes in him is core to the film's main themes.
In the film, he has spent his entire life from early puppyhood on the set of a television show, kept isolated from the outside world. In the show, Bolt must use his superpowers to save his owner and co-star Penny, whom he loves dearly, from the evil Dr. Calico. However, Bolt believes that he actually has the superpowers possessed by his television character, a delusion the directors of the show maintain by tricking Bolt into thinking his adventures are real, in order to make his performance more authentic.
The character Bolt was created by Chris Williams and Byron Howard together with the chief character designer Joe Moshier. Much of the inspiration for the character was provided by John Lasseter who also oversaw Bolt's visual development. Aside from the film, Bolt also appears in the direct-to-video short film Super Rhino, the two video games Bolt and Disney Infinity, the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom trade card role-playing game and has made cameo appearances in Wreck-It Ralph, Tangled and Big Hero 6. Bolt's character received mostly positive critical acclaim from film critics and became breakout-character, leading to strong sales of merchandise and toys following the film's release.
