Helicoil is best solution but probably too costly to be effective if it’s for a one-time use. Welding a nut on is certainly a good solution too if you have the capability. The simplest solution might be to drill it out and tap for a larger size bolt if you have a tap available.

If you don’t need infinite adjustability in the height, you could just drill a series of holes in the inner bar and use a pin to hold position. Think automobile jack stands.
