O scale grab irons with bolt head detail?

I’m looking for some grab irons in O scale that have the bolt head details already on them, so you can just drill the two holes, push them through, glue them in place and you’re done. I know they exist but after a lengthy internet search, all I can find are simple pieces of small wire bent in a “U” shape with right angles.
I’m looking for something more detailed and don’t mind paying for the right type.

Just drill another 2 holes and insert NBW into them.

I believe Des Plaines Hobbies has something like that.  But you will have to call them, their online site has no pictures worth mentioning.

The Proto:48 page also has references to some suppliers that may carry such parts: http://proto48.org/p48_suppliers.htm
