Goofy, The bolts are not supplied with the HL33PC. This product requires 2 - 1/2" diameter machine bolts equal to or better than ASTM Standard A307, Grade A (the length would depend on the size of the members being connected; HL33PC requires a minimum width and thickness of 3 1/2" for table loads to apply). Lag bolts of equal diameter and a minimum 5" long may be substituted for machine bolts into beam with no load reduction. Please see the following link for complete details on this product: http://www.strongtie.com/products/connectors/hl_apg.asp. Thank you!
