Trailer light board arm bold things

Had a mare with my indespension trailer nothing major but the stupid (not original) trailer arm bolts failed on me (both sides) they are just a bit of 10mm bar with a handle welded on. Cheap replacement for lost originals?

But the threads flatted and wonít hold in the past just cut 10mm off the end, but after today I need to replace them with something better...

Newer trailer donít have them mounted on the underside of the frame but the outside or top, donít want to drill the galv rails so newer nuts and bolts the only answer?

Seen these but not sure if there is better/cheaper out there.

Postage seems steep @ £7.50

The ones on the Extreme Marine site are M12's and you suggest in your post you need M10.

There are quite a few on line but I can't gather the courage to search for a 'male star knob'.

personally reckon a t handle welded on top of a stainless bolt is kinder on the hands !

The current ones aren’t original so not sure if they should M10 or M12 and indespension don’t list them online I’ll double check the nut end that looks like it might be home made too if I recall

Thanks for the links didn’t think to search for “star knob” happy with a T handle if stainless ones exist?

The one's on my "Extreme"....(1500KG) trailer are definitely 12mm.
The 10mm ones that Breezeblock made for me are lying in the shed.
Just as well he has plenty of spare time....

As long at the nut and bolt are they same size does it matter? I cut the remains thread down and there is no more so need to replace happy with M12s

pro temp could you just use an M10 (12? ) hex head and carry a ratchet or C spanner until you source a new "proper" one?

Ive bodged it for now and could potentially sort it with a M10 bolt will chuck one in the boot in case it happens again but really want to replace with something better...

Trailer is due some upgrades over the winter adding it all up £200+
