    I don't recall any rating on mine but I know they are 3/8"

    Edit: yeah... 3/8... that's what I meant...

    Mine were unrated as well, but looked like this and measured 3/8" x 6". I figured that a solid-forged piece of galvanized steel that size should hold me, as it's thicker than the fence rail wall and made of the same material. I may find out otherwise, but I think this one's pretty safe.

    There're two different aisles in my local Lowe's that have eye bolts; the bigger ones (that I used) were over by the door hardware and gate hinges rather than in with the regular screws and such.

    Hope it helps!


    Edit: Correction to bolt size: 3/8", not 5/8".

    Home Depot is where I found white ones. Supposedly Ace Hardware has them too but I never saw any.

    When building one set for my nephew, who wanted a dark stain, I made do with some 1-1/4 tips in black because that was all I could find.

    I had to trim the ends down to make it work, but it worked fine.

    Checked my local Ace today and the biggest they had was 1-1/8. Walmart had 1-1/4 and Lowes had 1-1/8. I may have to wait till I can hit the city and a home depot
