I was cruising around E-bay and located this Pekabe item -477-Single-Compression-Strut-Model- which could make a super nice boom vang here's the link:

Parts Supplied
Pressure Screw with Hand Wheel, Washer & Nut
Pekabe 465 Fork Bolt with Washer & Nut
Pekabe 455 Eyebolt with Washer & Nut

Overall Length: 3 - 3/16" or 81mm
Fully Closed Pin to Pin
Overall Length: 4 - 1/4" or 106mm
Fully Open Pin to Pin
Weight: 12.2 Grams
Pretty hardware for sure.
What is the purpose of the fork bolt, how is that used?
