    I seem to have lost the bolt that secures the rack to my hitch. I'm hoping to be able to pick up a new one at the hardware store for a couple of bucks rather than get one through Thule/Sportworks. If I remember correctly, the bolt head is 15/16, but what about the body of the bolt - length, diameter, and thread pitch?

    Any help would be great.

    Thread width: 5/8's
    thread type: Coarse (10-11 threads/inch)
    Length: 1.5 inches
    3 marks on the bolt (isn't that a grade 5?)

    I believe you can pick up a standard Hex bolt, 15/16x1.5 inches and be fine (get a grade 8).

    I just measure mine for you.

    I have an extra one that I would just give you, but postage would be more than a new bolt costs.

    3 Marks is indeed grade 5.

    HEY, Pm me. with an address, I should have a couple sitting in the shop. most of my customers went with the lock option so there should be a couple bolts laying around. if so I will have one sent to you. I am away from home for the next few weeks, but the guys will be back in next week. ( they are all Bear hunting in north west PA.) I will have them check.
