    Where to buy grade 8 Hardware?

    Sorry if this is the wrong topic area, couldn't find anywhere else it may fit sooooo....

    The PA on Dixie Rd in Mississauga has been out of stock on many different kinds/sizes of grade 8 hardware since April, and when I asked an employee I was told they stopped carrying it and won't be getting any-more, not sure how true that is, but judging from how empty the bins were I can't see myself wandering back there to see if it was incorrect.

    Partsource has some hardware but not in the size I need/looking for, which is 5/8 x 4.5", and lets not even begin with the lack of selection at Crappy T.

    Any ideas on where there may be a shop open on the weekend that sells grade 8 hardware in the west end of Toronto? I might be willing to venture out to the big M as well if I have the time this weekend.

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions/ideas!!!

    there is a Brafasco @ Victoria Park and Steeles that has short Saturday hours. I am sure they have a West end store.

    I go the Bolts+ in Newmarket - on Harry Walker Pkwy next door to TMR and across from NAPA. Great for grade 8, stainless, metric, etc. but no luck on Saturdays though, week days only.

    Thanks everyone, I'm gonna give bolts plus up near the airport a try, no weekend hours, but fortunately this isn't urgent, I just want to make sure I have everything needed before I swap the bumper out on my truck

    Yup, Fastenal in Etobicoke is definitely commercial only now, not sure about the others, which is why I cam here to ask to begin with, but forgot to mention originally.

    I was unable to get out during business hours, so ended up going to Lowes, and they did have a pretty good selection, unfortunately there are no 4.5" lengths in any of the sizes they carry, they jump from 4 to 5 but I still ended up buying a few smaller bolts, nuts washers etc to keep around in case needed, in the end I just reused the factory hardware to get the darn thing on the truck also noticed they carry ring terminals

    thread length isnt the problem on the ones at lowes, its the "shoulder", I would have to use extra washers to make sure it tightens properly, as the nut would hit shoulder before it starts to grab, and that's kinda half assed, fortunately the winch mounts to the frame and not the bumper so it isn't really an issue, yet...

    4" bolts I do have don't have enough thread going past the nut when put together

    another option is to just stitch weld that bumper to the frame, not like I would ever need to take it off again, and it has plenty of space behind it to reach anything

    PA just aint what it used to be, great place to find a half dozen different sizes of ammo boxes but trying to find hardware these days I hope that they are actually in the process of changing suppliers as opposed to discontinuing the hardware altogether

    thanks again for all the suggestions guys
