You do not need a drawing for that.

80mm long piece of 8 X 1.25 threaded rod with a 45į chamfer on the one end and a slot in the other end.

Well shit that's a bit more boring than I expected haha but.nonetheless I will make a few up for WD members out.of ss Allen cap bolts thanks for the info but the place that the.bolt goes into is that just a 45 degree dimple or is it a hole perhaps a shallower angle would be better?

Trust @Jughead  - its a locking tool, just locates in a slot.

The X-Challenge uses the same principle, I used a M8x60 Cap screw and an angle grinder....
