I am trying to locate a type of washer used when bolting bunk brackets to trailer cross members.
The washers I have seen years ago were square, concave and had turned-in pointed corners that bit into the bracket to help prevent verticle slipping ( downward) of the bracket.
I have searched trailer part suppliers etc and cant find them.
Are these hardware of yesteryear or are they still available?

never seen what you are describing...my guess is they were custom made by whoever made the trailer you saw it on....

if you use an adequately sized bolt and nut and it is torqued properly, there should be more than enough compression to hold things together...
