    Considering how often the rope slips off, I would think an electric drill driving a soft rubber "tire" would be more effective.

    If they had an electric drill they could probably come up with a socket and an adapter 1 man could do the work of many in half the time
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    There is a lot of excess thread. Looks like the thread could be shortened by 2 nut thicknesses and still be long enough. It would save time of assembly. That could be important when you are assembling high up on a wind generator tower or the like and time is of the essence. But then again, I could be missing something.

    I believe that once the nuts are run down and torqued they will be adding a second nut as a locking jam nut.
    The shoulders of the bolts would most likely extend 2/3rds of the way into the flange and since the length of the threaded portion of a bolt is largely determined by the diameter once they are of a certain size this may be the reason why the seemingly excess thread

    Nothing like taking a rope to your loose nuts.

    2 inch wide rubber straps with lobes are way faster, and they stay on the nut
