    Installed my hooks today

    I finally had some time this afternoon to install my Ken's bolt-on grab hooks. I am really impressed with the build quality and the ease of installation. I had originally intended to install three hooks across the top and two shackle mounts on top next to the outer hooks but then I saw a post from someone who had mounted the shackles under the grab hooks in place of the backing plates. It makes a cleaner install and allows the shackle support to dangle straight down to the load even when the bucket is raised all the way up.

    I may add a third shackle mount under the center hook.

    Looks good! I like the shackle inside the bucket idea.

    My stock is low on the clevis mounts...if you can wait a week or so I would appreciate it! Also, if your going to use them to back up the hooks lemme know that as well to save me from sending bolts (and I can refund a little $$ as well)
