I think you can sure use carriage bolts in the C channel. I'm just going with the hex bolts in the C channel because they come in stainless and Fastenal stocks them on the shelf.


Work is never done, so take time to play!

You could use carriage bolts, however I use regular hex bolts with washers on both sides inside the "C" channels. I use elevator bolts through the floor where floor covering will be put on top.

Look!! stainless elevator bolts! Elevator bolts at Bolt Depot
Just found this tonight.

BTW I found no need to drill the elevator bolts into my spruce ply flor. About 10 % spun, but I could grip the bolt below the nut with vice grips and continue tightening until the head pulled belw the flor surface.

I know this is an old thread but on my 81 the elevator bolts were screwed in from the top and the frame members were threaded. So you have to have some sort of head to be able to drive the screw down. I was able to find slot head elevator bolts from but the slotted heads were a pain to drive in without the bit slipping off. The phillips head bolts that AS used would have been better.
