    Diving Board

    I have lost my diving board bolts, I am curious can I get the stuff from home depot, or are these bolts special.

    As far as I can tell, they are nothing special. Mine look like regular steel bolts.

    I would caution you to buy RATED bolts with the markings on the heads. Unmarked bolts mean unrated bolts, and you have no idea what their strength will be. Since you have lost the bolts and presumably have no idea what strength you need, buy the kind with 5 hash marks on the heads for maximum strength. It would be particularly embarrassing and expensive liability wise for the bolts to snap mid-jump on someone and for them to be injured.
