We have a clawfoot tub where the legs are not attached to the tub with bolts. They just kind of hook on and what keeps them from sliding up and out from under the tub are some nails and screws that are acting like some sort of pin. I've tried to attach some photos.
What I'm wondering is what is supposed to go there besides a screw or nail to hold it in place? If I went into the hardware store to buy something to put there, what would I be looking to buy? What would have been there originally? The nails/screws seem very sturdy, but I just want to make sure there isn't something else I should be putting there...
I can't find anything online about this and have only ever seen legs bolted to a tub in the past.
