I am trying to determine the name of a piece of specialty hardware. It consist of a screw at one end and a bolt at the other. You screw the hardware into a piece of wood and then you leave the bolt extended to attach something to the wood using a nut. I need to find some, but I do not know what is the correct name.Thanks for any help.See More
