Can someone with a 2012 F-250 Supercab take a photo for me?

I bought a 2012 F-250 Supercab from a utility company that was in great shape, but the backseat (including seatbelts) had been entirely removed to make room for tool and material storage. I got a new take-out seat off of Ebay but had to buy new OEM Ford parts to replace both side retractors, belts, and buckles and the center belt and buckle. The sides were no big deal and came with the bolts I needed. The center retractor was a different story. All that came in the box was the retractor itself, no bolt. I can easily see where it fits into the bracket behind the seat back, but unlike the side retractors, there is no threaded nut mounted on the body for it to screw into. When looking at the parts diagram that was sent along, all it shows is a threaded bolt but no corresponding nut:

The retractor itself is not threaded so the bolt does not screw into that either. I suppose I could just throw a Grade 8 bolt and nut in there and call it a day, but when it comes to safety equipment I'd much rather be sure that I'm installing it as the manufacturer intended and as it was tested. If someone with a 2012 F-250 Supercab could pop their seat back (its very easy, takes a flathead screwdriver and about 10 seconds) and take a photo of the center retractor and how it's mounted I would really appreciate it.
