A 7/8" shackle has a 1" diameter pin but they'll bind in the clevis mount hole unless you clearance them with a die grinder. The pins usually have a "forging line" on them that interferes with the fit in the pin hole.

Hand is good. That liquid bandaid really worked well. I just kept it clean and brushed on the liquid bandaid a few times a day. I now keep a bottle of that stuff at the shop for all the little nicks/cuts that we get on our hands (almost daily). Now, I just need something for severe burns..

quick fist mount question.....

I mounted four QFs today on my tailgate rack and used the supplied plastic rectangle shaped washer to put the 10-32 screw through and they set up tight but I am wondering if it is strong enough and if anyone else has mounted them different or had any problems with that mount configuration?

The Qfs will be used to hold a shovel and a ax/max using two QFs each.

I probably wouldn't use them for the Baja 1000, but for normal wheeling, I think they're fine. If in doubt, you could run a zip tie around the center to clamp them tight.. not like you'd have to snip it off daily.

Zip tie! Good idea. Thanks for the reply. I like the function of them and they have a decent load rating, just that 10-32 screw and the piece of plastic made me nervous.

1/4" would feel more secure to me too. For now I will crisscross zip tie it. When it is all done, the swing out will close up pretty close to it, so I think they will be contained even if an end cuts loose or something like that.

I did get the rack done today. It is step one of the bumper build. The swing out will have two 5gl cans and a (rubicon) rack over the tire. The tire is a 33" but still adding lots of weight back there. I may have to get some Ground pounder fab 6" ctr boomerang shackles to compensate for the sag in the back!

Nice! Like the way it's tucked up tight against the tub.
