I used fine wire around the bolt threads Posted by MI-Roger [Email] (#882) [Profile/Gallery] (more from MI-Roger) on Sat, 16 May 2020 04:04:11

One easy success. Three failures right at the point where I was needing to tug somewhat hard to get the bolt into the hole. The wire pulled off the threads. Not having the hitch in position when I was doing this might have made things easier - definitely improved sight lines. The one that dropped in easily did so when I placed a finger tip against the bottom of the bolt to help square it up and stand it upright.
After I got the final bolt extracted from the frame where it had been lost for two days, my wife asked me if I was planning to cancel the appointment and try it again myself. I chickened out.
I knew the technique. I just wasn't good or experienced or lucky with it.
