You will also need:
● Four 10 mm (3/8″) diameter bolts 64 mm (2 1/2″) long overall (the length of the thickness of two pieces of framing wood)..
Note: Usually the length of a bolt refers to the shank length only, that is, the head of the bolt is not included in the length. However, in this case the reference to the length of the bolt is ‘overall’, meaning it does include the head. This is because the head of the bolt is countersunk into the wood.
● Four nylon locking nuts.
Note: Each bolt is used as a pivot point for two pieces of wood, therefore the nuts cannot be tightened completely otherwise the wood would not be able to ‘pivot’ freely.
Because the nuts can only be loosely tightened (just enough to allow the wood to pivot), nylon locking nuts (or similar) are required.
A nylon locking nut is a nut that resists further loosening or tightening under vibration and torque. It has a nylon collar insert.
● Around 200 exterior type wood screws 50 mm (2″) long.
● Some exterior wood glue.
