I hadn't though about that.. The cabo's are really thought out well and its currently set up with bolts at both ends; I assumed that there was a reason for that design.
That's a good idea though.
However, I still have to get the rod out! The current
pin is seized to the port roller, so when you turn the roller, the pin turns and vice versa.
EDIT: They don't seem to make 16" bolts in 316 stainless steel
. That's probably why they used rods with threads on the ends.
