Any hardware store. If I am not mistaken, it is a socket head cap screw. They usually are a grade 8 hardened fastener.

The collar bolt is metric, not sure on the size.

My strikemaster's bolt is metric. I lost one on a lake in North Dakota a few years ago and drove it to a hardware store, where one of their standard metric bolt sizes fit perfectly. I still keep it in my kit as a backup, after I got a replacement bolt from a fishing tackle store.

The original and replacement bolts take an Allen wrench to tighten (not sure which size).

I think that you can order them from Strikemaster, if that is what you have. You may want to give then a call at Big Lake.

When you put the collar bolt in use Loctite 242. It will hold the bolt tightly, but you can still loosen it with whatever wrench it takes, albeit with some effort.

Collar bolts are one of those things that depress the devil out of me. That, and the little rubber knob for ice-ducers. Not that people lose them, but that every day, I have to face the reality that so many guys are out there willing to get arrested because they come into your store and steal the stupid little things!
Amazing!

Oh, yeah, last year, it was gas-caps.

Ah hah! You never need a transducer stopper again. Just take a thick rubber band and break it. Then wrap it a few times around the ducer cable and tie it in a double knot (but not too tightly; just experiment). It rolls up and down the cable easily but holds the float in place just fine. Been using mine that way for two years. I could never get the factory stop to keep from sliding, anyway. What a blessing when I lost it. wink.gif

One way to keep from loosong that bolt is to wrap a piece of electrical tape around the collar. Just make sure to take the tape off and check the bolt once in a while, then replace tape.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
