    Stabilizer Bolt Size??

    Newb question for ya.....
    What is the size of the stabilizer hole/bolt that I would need to get. I have a stab that I lost the bolt for so I am going to need to get a new one.



    So How big is the bolt?
    And were can I get one with no end ( You know so one end can screw into stab and the other into the bow )

    What you need to look for is called a "set screw". Most any of the larger hardware stores should have them - you'll need one at least 3/4" long.

    You will need a 5/16 with 24 thread. You should be able to find them at Lowes or Home Depot...at least the ones around here have them. I found the bolts pretty easily, but had to ask for some assistance in locating the headless bolts. The employees at both places are good though...they took me right to them. You may want to take your stab in, just to make sure you have the correct size. If you they don't have the headless bolt there, you can always cut off the head of a bolt with a dremel, and then round/smoot out that end to make sure it works well.

    Good luck,

    This is what I had to do. I also purchased a nut. Once I cut the head off the bolt I chased it off with the nut to straighten the threads. I then hit it with a grinder to smooth them out and then chased it with the nut again to align any threads.
