    Yes. I will never have another loader with out them.
    I have the hooks on top and shackles inside and would do it the same way if I had to do it over. Solid, well built and the bolt-on (vs weld-on) is a really clean easy install.

    Best thing since sliced bread. A bucket without hooks is like a shovel without a handle.

    The only thing better than Ken's hooks is a set of Ken's hooks with a shackle backing plate. :-)

    I have KBOH hooks and clevi on the FEL and also a clevis on the BH bucket. Really handy. I had thoughts about the weld-on variety, but I think the bolt on version is much easier to install ... especially if you don't have a welder near your tractor. Welding requires grinding off paint, the actual welding, clean-up, then paint. Bolt-on just requires drilling a few holes, attaching said hooks and clevi and you're done.

    I installed mine in the middle of winter, there was at least 6 inches of snow on the ground. Best money spent so far.

    Just my 2 cents.
