    Filter clamp - nut stripped - solved, please ignore

    Please ignore this post - I figured out a work-around for the problem (not perfect, but it works!)
    Pool details:

    18x36 Vinyl In-Ground pool
    25,000-30,000 gallons (estimate, will know more when I can get in and get an average depth)
    DE filter
    Pump info unknown - I'll get that soon!

    Bama - nothing too exotic. I took the clamp assembly back to the hardware store and spent 30 minutes on the aisle floor looking for options. I found a 5/16x6" piece of hardware with a hook on one end and a bolt on the other (essentially looks like a shepherd's hook). I was able to use the hook through a hole on the strap (basically wrapping it around the t-bar of the existing bolt) and then put the bolt through the receiver on the other side. Worked like a charm.

    That's a good fix! I'm sure someone will appreciate it in the future.
