    Titan pallet fork question

    Does anyone know the purpose of the rectangular holes on the pallet fork frame?

    Thanks

    Maybe a place to hook a strap?

    Possibly a cost saving measure but the answer is probably something extremely simple such as the only reason for the holes is an attempt to make the frame look cool and somewhat imitate other manufacturers frames.

    Strategically placed or cut holes in steel shapes typically serve 3 purposes, aside from being functional as was suggested above with being a place to hook a strap or something. They’re usually aesthetic or to lighten the member, or are designed to actually stiffen it which is designed via a steel modeling and design software-bending and shaping steel with holes in it or then putting holes in it to stiffen the shape or make it easier to bend is pretty standard in industry.

    But this is in regards to a Titan frame? Don't get me wrong, for the money I'm very pleased with what I received but it's Titan...... The holes are probably just to look cool. I don't think steel modeling and design software or any other "standard industry" is a factor in their pricing.

    I didn start my explanation with “typically”, I was giving possibilities for why they could be there.

    Understanding it is a Titan product however I do agree, they’re probably just for looks (aesthetic) just as I mentioned was a probability.
