Hi can anyone help me please? I have a used dog kennel/run I am wanting to put together, the holes are there already as it has been used previously, it just needs screwing or bolting together. Unfortunately it didn't come with the fittings so I've taken a couple of photo's and hoping someone can tell me which size of a screw or some type of bolt or other fitting I need to use to secure the pieces together?

It's 6 feet tall by 9 feet long, mostly made of a thick wood with some mesh areas as you will see in the photo.

I've taken a photo with a 40mm screw stuck next to the hole to help you see the scale of the hole and the depth of the hole is 8cm. Can anyone advise me on which size screws I need for this please?

What does that hole measure across? 10mm, 12mm?
Does the hole go through the other part?
If it does then use 10 or 12mm galvanised bolts of suitable length.
Nut inside. Use good thick "penny washers" both sides.
It it doesn't I'd drill it through and use bolts anyway, unless there's some good reason not to. There's no detail of what's the other side.
I prefer to bolt large sheds if possible.

Just measured the hole is 10mm accross and it goes through the other side then you place another piece of the wood kennel against it and the screw has to go through both the first hole of 8cm and the second of another 8cm.

Do you mean something like this? https://www.amazon.co.uk/200mm-10mm-Welded-Bolt-Washers/dp/B005LFTLRC/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1509905639&sr=8-3&keywords=10mm+galvanised+bolt

Can't look on the B & Q site yet as it's down for maintenance.

No.
Either get coach bolts.
http://ebay.eu/2zePX3Q
But if the hole is any bigger the square under the head that stops the bolt turning can turn in the hole.

or

Ordinary bolts
http://ebay.eu/2hIO9Gj
BUT If you get "bolts" you really want "set pins" or "set screws" which are bolts with the thread all the way along.

The other alternative is "Allthread" which is just a length of threaded rod you cut to length with a hacksaw. Buy suitable nuts /washers from t he same place. Two nuts for each "thread" obviously. One as the "head" one as the "nut"
Most hardware places have that.

Try Toolstation - cheaper than B&Q, Amazon or Screwfix on this sort of thing as a rule

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!
