If working alone on grain bin panels how do you keep the bolts from turning? Is there a special wrench available that would catch on nearby bolt holes or to the edge of a metal panel to keep the bolt from turning? Thanks.

Can you put a cheater bar on the back-up wrench so that it might catch on something and hold it for you?

Sounds like that would work. Maybe I should look at making a special cheater bar that would have a socket and a round peg/punch on it, both at the far end away from the bolt, maybe opposite from each other. This could be slid over a breaker bar that would be used as the back-up wrench.

................Try putting a lock washer on the bolt BEfore you slide it into it's hole . A star washer might work better than a regular washer . , fordy
