I got a carport and it has been in storage for a few years and when I go to put it together no bolts. I can't find any locally. I don't know what to call them. Its about 1/4" dia & 2 1/2" long. I have been to Lowes and Fastenal and others. If I knew what to name it.

Check out McMaster-Carr. If they don't have what you need, well...that would be a real bummer.

Preston...I would go with Dan's suggestion...Buy Grade 2 bolts (no marks on the head) and nuts by the pound...use double nuts vs lock nuts...spin the first nut down to contact frame; spin second nut to first and tighten against first nut using double-wrench method; cheaper than nylon lock nuts, won't crush your frame, quicker to install nor will  they work loose; cheaper in the long run than a bunch of 1/4" x 2 clevis pins too. My $.02

1/4 X 2 1/2 bolts with lock nuts.  Tighten the nuts down to Just snug.

Farm stores stock those by the bin full....try a TSC, Rural King, or whatever that's closest to to you.

if you do the bolt make sure the shank is unthreaded for at least the thickness of the material...
