    Fork Frame Add-On

    Last weekends project: I needed a way to pull pallets to the rear of the delivery trucks, they always hooked a strap over the top of the fork and I knew one day the latch was going to get broken.

    Came up with this in a few hours, then painted with real JD Green paint-man the stuff spays nice!

    Did you get the shackle from the guy who sells them on here?

    If not, a lot of people on here would recommend him.

    The shackle and padeye seem to be heavy enough to do some serious pull'in.

    "real JD Green paint"

    Gizmo will probably want pics of the rattle can to verify.

    Looks to me like 3 of those (1 on the top and 2 on the bottom) could be used to hold a 3 point quick hitch. ...just like Chris' 3 ph adapter, only cheaper. Would that work?

    Or if made with hooks like a quick hitch, the quick hitch wouldn't even be necessary...

    Does it interfere with removing the forks?

    Never mind, I see now its a clip-on. Really cool idea. Opens up a whole new category of attachments.
