Rear axle thread size?

Anyone know the rear axle thread size for the Neo Cross (and I imagine most, if not all, of the other Easy Motion models)?

I was thinking about finding some locking nuts to secure the rear wheel (because why not), but if I order online I'd have to already know the thread size. Can't seem to find it in any documentation or on BH's Easy Motion website.

The rear axle bolt that locks the hub is 19mm (used 19mm wrench to repair a flat) but I can check and measure the axle thread size when I get back.

That would be fantastic! Not sure if there's a standard thread size and bolt diameter that are typically matched to 19mm bolts, but some of these locking bolts are expensive, so I'm hoping to get my order right on the first try if I can.

Sticking my nose in, even though unrelated ... the FRONT axle bolt on the Neo Volt is M9 ... (even labeled as such on the acorn nut). Just sharing this in case anyone is buying (Pinhead) locks. The REAR is bigger, but I did not remove it to check the size.

Did anyone ever figure this out? I just remembered and thought I'd check back. Haven't had a chance to check myself, but was thinking about trying a hardware store where I could bring it in and test some (assuming metric) bolts to see what fits. If I do I'll update here for reference.

Yes, I have measured it. The rear axle thread size is M 11.5

Because it is a hub motor axle as well, one side of it flat ( M 11 would work) and the other side is spherical just like normal axle. So, M 11.5 would work for sure. I believe Dapu motor used in the Neo line is same across the board (mine is a 650b Jumper)

How do I know this? I wanted to find a hitch mount for the touring trailer and had to measure the diameter using a caliper.
