Eek. Retro is a naughty word. Means adding bolts that weren't there. Rebolt is more like it. Means replacing existing bolts in existing locations.

Eh, semantics. It needs to be replaced with a new shiny bolt.

Greg, matters just as much here. Captain Mo, there are people who like to say "minor surface corrosion", and I am refering to them as a group. BTW< Brian, I dont think its hilti... I think its your standard "whatever" at the hardware store. Hiliti KBll's have that larger nut. That nut looks small, like its imperial rather than metric.


FWIW, all three hardware stores where I have worked stocked only Rawl brand anchor bolts.

Where is that bolt? There's a pretty similar one at the end of the first pitch of First Return at LG- so sketchy, don't know why it's still there.

Pretty standard plated steel bolt on an SS hanger. Not the greatest but this one doesn't look too bad. I'd whip on it for sure but over the long term this bolt will have to be replaced.


The mixed metals will lead to other, non visible weaknesses in the structural integrity of the hanger and the bolt. Where are the engineers/chemists on this thread?

Ummm, No. I'm one of the engineers on this thread, and the issue with mixed metals is that it may cause galvanic corrosion (i.e. rusting of the bolt where it contacts the hanger). In this case, because the hanger is painted, there is probably no contact between the two types of metal, so galvanic corrosion won't occur (unless the paint has been scratched off or something).
