Upgrading insulators on posts

The style being replaced. I have issues with them cracking beneath the wire.
Sometimes bolt-cutters are actually used to cut bolts. In this case, both the insulator and the bolt.
The hole is just a tiny bit too small to run a 1/4" bolt through. That is easy enough to fix.
Quarter inch-by-four inch, galvanized bolt. Both ends of the bolt get a split "lock washer" and a flat washer with the flat washer closest to the insulator and post on their respective ends.
Ceramic Zareba part number WP22E insulator and a UV stabilized, indoor/outdoor cable-tie. The lock is spun so it is beneath the body of the insulator.
