    IMatch hook quick adjustment solution

    I have several implements that require me to move the IMatch hook up or down. A PITA to have to go get wrenches.

    I tried the trailer pin solution, but they were sloppy because they are slightly smaller at 5/8" than the hook holes.

    So I drilled a 1/4" hole in the original bolts and use lynch pins to hold the bolts in place.

    Now quick and easy to change the hook location..

    Great mod. Now all you need to do is weld a piece of steel on the heads of the 2 bolts so they are one piece and you could move both bolts at the same time.

    I think this is the best mod yet for dealing with the top-hook bolts.

    So the bolts really add that much to the snugness of the top hook? I figured it was just the fact that the nuts were tightened on that made the bolts a more rigid connection than pins. I wasn't aware that the bolts were enough larger in diameter to make things better. I may have to swap them in when I till next time and see if it helps with the rigidity.
