As David said if they don't have the square bit they wouldn't be carriage /coach bolts just plain old button heads and I don't think you can get button heads without a hex key hole in the head ...it wouldnt make sense

you want them without the square tip underneath the head??, I don't know if such model even exist, a carriage without the square tip it wouldn't be a "carriage bolt" anymore, otherwise how are you going to hold it in place in order to screw it firmly?? , I think you are looking just for round head screws.
Hi,

I’m from the future. I’m here to inform you that such bolts do in fact exist.

@pubjoe where you get them bolts ?

I came across this by accident I don't have a dremel would an angle grinder be overkill :shifty: :lolno:


I reckon the original b manufacturers for the coach bolt we are looking for went out of business and no one else has made them the same. Had a issue like that at work even though they all used the same drawings, but the "better " maker had gone out of business:roll: :problem:

There were a couple in the Pony MK3 when I stripped it down. No idea if original. All the bolts of the other two sizes had the squared neck.

Without unbolting to double check I’m pretty sure they’re the two pictured below on the left side of the speaker panel. They are attached to nothing. Is this where a cup holder would go?

Does seem weird that they’d exist in the first place. Maybe they’re designed that way so that they’re never fastened harder than finger-tight. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Have come across nothing like them and I've looked at way too many variances for necks on round head bolts /screws /fasteners . :problem:

I have a bunch of them as well. Alas, they're all rusty, so probably not something anyone will want.

I would say just use those square carriage bolts, fasten it to a drill collet and use a metal file until its and round.
