Has anyone got some of these spare? In particular there are some black ones with about 12mm of thread and a triangular head with a 3mm allen key fitting. Interested in any others too.

You should be able to get them at any bolt suppliers. I think they are M5 counter sunk bolts and you should go for 11.8 tensile strength as an 8.8 will be to soft. They should litrally cost you 20 odd pence per bolt.

You really should use Torx for these....

3mm hex wrench is asking for trouble.

Torx offers a greater contact surface area than standard allen keys, especially useful for small bolts like these that need to be done up tight!

Chris,

I did find these which are a great deal - tool included.

£3 postage though - if you want we could split an order? If you buy two sets at £4 total, bung me £1 towards the postage (ie total £5) and I will do the order and send them on to you?!
