Loose bolt on Sweet Dreams 7-Jun-2015 At 5:51:31 PM timfreddo
I also gave it a wiggle on my way past yesterday, definately shifted around in its hole a bit, couldn't make it spin with finger strength though...

Be careful not to think a carrot is less dodgy due to its shiny new appearance.. At least rusty carrots might have had the chance for the rust to swell with age, creating a tighter fit (as long as it was a decently placed carrot in the first place!)
In the case of this bolt, it looks like failure of adhesion between glue and rock due to not enough cleaning of the hole prior to gluing the bolt in. IMO weaker then a rusty looking carrot
