They call it a "pivot pin" but I'd say it qualifies as pivot bolt.

And to the OP, I used an alternate method on installing the left side pivot pin that didn't require any special tools.

I applied medium Loctite on the pin and turned it to the specified torque (7Nm?).
Next let the Loctite cure, marked the pin and the frame with white dots to verify if the pin moves.
Then torqued the lock nut to its specified torque (lotofNm) using a normal unmodified socket.
At the end check the marks on the pin to make sure it didn't turn with the nut. It didn't.

I'm curious what med lock tight is. I have used blue and red before.... What would you recommend?
