A flexible staybolt has a ball shape on one end and is threaded on the other. The ball end fits into and will be held by the cup shape of the inside of the sleeve. The sleeve will be welded on the outside or wrapper sheet of the boiler above the firebox. The Boiler of 2716 requires 48 flexible staybolts to be replaced in the upcoming restoration.
