Putting wheels back on trash barrel.Need to replace pal nut and would like to know if there is a standard size to purchase

Hi there!

Upon looking at this specific replacement kit, the Pal-Nut size they used is 5/8”. Since you may have a different trash can with a different size axle, you should refer to any replacement kits made online and see what size Pal-Nut they use.
