J hook for the penthouse latch

Hi,
Not sure how but magically one of two J hooked for the front latches is now missing from my SMB.
Anyways, I called SMB NA, and they only had hooks for Ford not GMC. What I need is 7inch long J threaded hook for the front latch in 2007 GMC SMB. Does anyone have an extra or know where I could get one?
Thank you.

I have seen those at hardware stores like OSH. You might have to cut them to fit. Maybe Fastenal?

So, by "Sportsmobile NA" do you mean Indiana, Texas and/or California? They are not the most integrated companies, so you may have to call each one.

Re: J hook for the penthouse latch

Thank you everyone. I can't believe there is a site that sells so many different bolts.
Do you guys happen to know what pitch of the bolt I need ? Or If I get the correct thickness, can I assume it will just fit?
As for NA, I mean Sportsmobile North America, Indiana. Nancy at SMB NA has bee super helpful so far since I bought the vehicle. Perhaps I should reach out to Fresno and Austin as well to see if they have them in stock.
Thank you again for everyone for the information.

Take the one J bolt you have to the local hardware store and match it up. You might not find an exact match to the shape you have on yours, but it should work fine. Find a bolt that screws on to the one you have, and make sure it screws on to the new one, and you are good to go.
