I'm currently having the spinning bolt issue as well and for the life of me, I cannot fathom why AS would use Phillips bolt heads. They strip out before you can apply adequate torque. I'm not talking about "gorrilla-torque," but just adequate enough to keep the hinges in place and prevent sagging.
I was toying with investigating if I could find a shallow external hex-head bolt that would fit so I could apply some appropriate torque, but the Allen head idea sounds great too. Would love to see pics of the bolts you picked up, if you'd care to share. Thanks!
