Rock Guard support arms

good evening. My boler came with a rock guard but what I am looking for are the support arms that have little buttons to lock it into different positions. We had these arms on an older trailer years ago. Any idea if they are available
thanks in advance Jan

Years ago I lost the factory rock guard supports on my 79 Boler. Mine didn't have the buttons and holes but a slide with a screw for different positions...Anyway I made my own with 1/2 and 3/4 inch CPVC plumbing pipe. The 1/2 slides inside the 3/4 and I have several holes to insert a 1/4 Brass bolt and wing nut at different positions.
I knotched the top of the 1/2 to fit the rim of rock guard and the bottom of the 3/4 to fit the latch lock on the bottom again a 1/4 bolt and wing nut on each end.
Hardest part of operation is lining up holes when adjusting.
Took me about 2 hours to do.
For God sake, do not drop a tarnished, brass wing nut on the ground at twilight...almost imposible to find

Vintage Trailer Supply sells these supports. They appear to be the same as those on my Bigfoot. Might work for you.
