The part number I gave was stainless steel, which is all I use. U-Bolts can
be reshaped so perhaps a 2 1/2 or 3" wide one squeezed down would be of
adequate length.  Since you are using saddles, another option may be just
use a Stauff clamp half and hex bolts, which are available in any length.

4 inch won't do it, no room for a saddle, plate and fasterners. I was
really, I guess, seeking a ham known reputable and reasonable cost source of
custom U bolts and that was why I was wondering if U-Bolt-It was used by
anyone. I know what standard lengths and sizes are available from the
catalogs, but for the other needs . . . . . . . plus nothing goes outside
here unless it is SS if I can help it.

I guess it depends on what you call long.  McMaster-Carr has 2" U-Bolts
that are 4" long https://www.mcmaster.com/#29605t45/=175136e
