Fully define Bolt with MateReferences

Is there any way to fully define a "dragged in" bolt from my design-library into an Assembly?

When I select the edge under the head of the bolt as a MateReference I can create to mates: 1 - concentric to the hole & 2 - coincident to the face were the bolt is attached to.

But the bolt is then still "under defined", because it can still rotate on its axis.

Now I manually add a coincident mate of a plane of the bolt and the origin of the assembly to fully define the bolt. But the question is if there's a way to automatically creates that last mate.
