Mounting 2 pedestal deck plates to my boat for side by side spider rig fishing but I can't get underneath to put nuts on the bolts that will secure the plates. Do y'all know of any anchors or bolts that I can use to secure them. Maybe some kind of expanding bolt. Don't have the money for a double seat. 7 month old took care of that! I found some toggle bolts that are used for mounting trolling motors they are expensive. $4 a piece and I need 12. May need to go to fasten all. Figure one of you guys may know of something. Thanks!

John it's called toggler brand toggle bolts. These are a u-shaped peice of channel that's threaded. You insert the channel on a ziptie like collar , snap it off and the channel's secured to bottom of deck then run screws provided down tight. Its a snap...
