i used high tensile studding, more so that i could adjust the length to my liking, personal preference i suppose.

I went to my local bolt man and bought a couple of allen headed
bolts the right length. Only cost a couple of quid each.
I personaly don't like the idea of studding. (But that's just me.. )

And yes definatly H/T. Don't use B&Q rubbish.

It has been said by some that every root of the thread on studding or bolt is a possible failure point,so my personal view for something so critical would be Dogwood's long bolt. (nothing personal David !)

what about a good old fashioned rivet? Design it to have radi instead of sharp corners, sure to have no weak points.

If you can't get them, give me a shout I'll ask my bolt man if he still has any.
This was 18months ago I bought them
