    1Up rack problem ?

    My 1up rack aluminum piece that was attached to the main 1 1/4 inch hitch detached yesterday.
    was this piece glued together to main hitch to make it 1/2 inch hitch?

    did I lose a screw ?

    1UP told me that I am missing 5/16-18 X ½” long Socket Head cap screw.
    Amazon sell it for 8bucks. YIKES

    Depending on where the bolt is located or what the purposed of the bolt it, may need a hardened bolt.

    No, they sell it for $0.80 each, in a package of 10. Buy the package and sell the other 9 bolts for $5 each. You come out on top at the end. Winner winner chicken dinner.

    Those screws are also 18-8 stainless steel.

    I went to 3 home hardware stores. they don't stock them at all.
    this has been frustrating experience just to look for 1 simple screw

    If the screw is really a 5/16-18 X ½” socket head cap screw, the linked screw on Amazon is the wrong screw. Here the Amazon link to the screw you specified: https://www.amazon.com/Socket-Screws...ustrial&sr=1-3

    Here's a little better deal for the screw you specified in stainless: https://www.ebay.com/itm/5-16-18-X-1...EAAOSwb3laE3x9

    I do not know about you, but it never hurts to have a few spare fastners around the house.

    the issue is this is not a socket head---it is an allen head-----you cannot get a socket on that bolt to tighten---the hole in the part is not big enough----could drill it out I guess but I'd get the proper allen bolt

    Any good hardware store should have a ... hardware section! But you can find a 'fastener' store.

    I have whatever the local store carried available qty 1. Yeah, it's the wrong type as it's all rusty. But it shouldn't have any real force on it, I don't think.

    (Then again I'm one of the many ppl whose 1up loosens on rough roads. But it did that in 1 1/4 mode too.)

    pctloper: it's a socket *head* screw. not a bolt head (or hex head). you use an allen key with it. see photo in amazon link above.

    neat little set of charts. looks like they also sell in quantity 1 so if you need a few things, order here or somewhere similar? https://www.boltdepot.com/fastener-i...n/Default.aspx

    The screw I linked on eBay is an Allen head screw. That type of screw is called a "socket head cap screw," which is not to be confused with a hex head bolt. Socket head cap screws can be Allen or square drive.

    https://www.mcmaster.com/socket-head-cap-screws

    The screw diameter is 5/16ths. The thread pitch is 18. That is important because these screws also come in 24 thread pitch.

    Go to an Ace hardware, or Fastenal.
    Or call 1up and have them send you one?

    Can’t 1up just send you one?
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.
