I can give a thumbs up to KAYS FASTNERS too.

If anyone is looking for alt/az type bolts with a plastic turny thing on them try COMPONENT FORCE.

Hi again, does anyone know what the proper name for this type of bolt is and any suppliers?

Hard to tell from your sketch but if the loop at the top is hinged then the only common screw type like this is used for fixing cameras to tripods and is called a "D RING SCREW" and is commonly available in one thread size, 1/4", but different lengths.

Here is a long thread version at Amazon:

If you go to ebay uk and type D RING SCREW in the search box you will find several listings in different lengths.

Many thanks Oddsocks, shame I can only find them in 1/4", but I have an 1/4 x 20 tap set somewhere, will just have to modify my design.

I use a local engineering supplies company for thissort of thing.   They have racks of bolts and screws and will happily sell 1 or a thousand.
