Take an old with you and Car Quest, NAPA or one of the like should be able to set you up.

You mean like a 3/8 g100 hammerlock? I usually just get them at one of my local logging stores but Iíve seen them on amazon and eBay

I just hammer in a piece of wood after the socket. Not in the hole you put the roll pin

The bolt idea is what I may have to try . Main logger 88 this is not a hammer lock it is a double roll pin to hold in the double end cable choker . All the supply places sell the bells with out the pins . Our local store has a bin for them been empty for weeks .

I just get normal grade 5 bolts , I use to use pins but cannot get pins 99% of the time so switched to bolts, to be honest the bolts work good and I find easier to get back out to switch chokers , if bolt is bent real bad when you need to get it off it will just break in half pretty easy , I have had pins I had to cut out with a torch before
