Feature C - Bolt Studs
In Feature C, the bolt studs are attachment points on the  diagonal face of the uplock. Bolt holes in the studs are drilled and tapped.

The bolt studs have a diameter of 0.60 inches and a depth of 0.50 inches. They do not carry major loads and are not highly stressed.

The diameter of the bolts studs is sufficient to carry the loads and the design fillet radius of 3/16 inch is appropriate.

Feature C does not need to be changed.
