OK, now I see the setup. Thanks
In this situation I would be very curious to know what kind of bolts and what's behind that bracket.
Are these regular bolts or lag bolts? Are they standard bolts going into a threaded plate or imbedded nuts or is it a lag bolt screwed into a plywood
pad or what?
To start I would remove one of the bolts to see what it is and the condition of the hidden part of the bolt.
