    I need 4 of the square nuts that are used to mount a winch. Where can I find them?

    Found ours at the local mom and pop hardware store. I saw some at Lowes last trip also.

    square nuts..??

    Telephone pole??:whistle: :whistle: ....I see them holding transformers on,and guy wires..:thinking: ..

    I've seen them in farm supply stores,and at places like "U-Haul" that install trailer hitches---but why use a square nut that probably isn't even a grade 5??...is it the only thing that will work for whatever reason?..not sure I'd trust them under those kinds of conditions a winch is likely to see..:crazy:

    Need them because thats what came with the winch. A regular nut will not fit. Think I might go cheap and steel 2 from a transformer then.:eek1::haha:

    Well steal them far from my house 'cause I don't want to be inconvenienced by a power outage when you blow your own nuts off stealing those.:haha:
