    Well it would be one way to move a trailer into a tight corner - lift it 30 feet into the air

I used a screw in the top but most forks simply use a spring/gravity pin that drops slot to keep the fork from moving side to side. Here's a link to the FEM/ISO standard which should clarify the mounting. http://www.hydronika.eu/Hydronika/us...0richtlijn.pdf

    This 41 second video shows how forks are installed.
    That's really informative video. Hope it helps to all learner. Thanks for sharing.

    I like that, need to make a similar setup for a skidsteer with forks, don't want to drop the forks and use a dedicated hitch plate.

    I've not been on a lot but wondered about you too. Was out in your neck of the woods sometimes back and started to give you a call.

    It has worked treat and doesn't take up any storage space. I've used it a couple time. Couldn't be happier.

    I've been teaching high school shop the last year and a half. I've been crazy busy trying to juggle my own shop and the school. I'm on summer break so I have some more time.
