Sorry to fire this thread up again but looking for some quick tips...
I started to replace the rusted hardware on my penthouse the other day and managed to get one single one replaced and it was the rear most point where I could reach in the back door with a wrench and stop the bolt from spinning freely while I took the nut off the roof.
Is there a trick to hold the bolts inside while you are working on the roof or is this a 2 man job???
I use a pair of vice grips to lock on to the top of the bolt. Then set a couple of bricks next to it to keep it from moving. Not elegant but it worked.
