I'm putting up a Rohn 25G tower and in the process of getting all my
hardware together, found I have several kinds of bolts.
1. I have the bolts I bought from a local supply house for another tower.
They have a light bronze shading, (anodized??) and on the end, have 9
"hatch marks" and the numeral "67". They were on a tower I took down and
had not rusted in 10 years. I can get these locally.
2. I have a bunch of galvanized bolts (I guess - they're gray and not
shiny). The large ones have 3 "hatch marks" on the heads and the small
ones have 4 hatch marks. Some of them have an "R" on the head, some have
"L5". They are fine-threaded.
3. Shiny bolts with 3 hatch marks on the heads. Some have "KS" on the
head. These were represented to be original Rohn bolts. They are
fine-threaded. They look too shiny to be galvanized.
Should I use any of these, or would you recommend that I get new Rohn bolts
