Geoff@Bestop I think you're referring to the Pivot Knuckle Bolt (#V below).
Attachment 19171

The problem with replacing this bolt with hardware store stuff is that you need the bows to pivot smoothly, yet still fit snugly. Because of wind pressure, there's a lot of stress at that connection point, so a loose fit may cause issue.

The cotter pin solution is fine, but might be a short term thing, unless you get a really nice fit.

You can call 800-845-3567 and ask our support team for some. Don't know what we charge, but it's always a little more than it should be (we aren't really in the parts business). Quad may also carry them. They cant' cost that much.

For $25 bucks you can get "quick release bow knuckles" that use a little spring mounted pin. It's a nice upgrade.

Screws.

I took the soft top off this morning and I stupidly lost the screws that go to the arms. They attach to the part of the sport cage behind the front seats. Anybody know what size they are and where I can get them?
