“No matter if you are sectioning or pulling, it is imperative that the vehicle is securely held during the repair,” said Perry. “Supplemental holding points on the frame rack keep the vehicle from moving out of place, and also facilitate the multipoint pulls that may be required to return a vehicle to OEM specifications. Chief’s Structural Holding Package is effective with body-on-frame and unibody vehicles, and our new video series shows how to create holding points for each type.”

Every holding point created with Structural Holding Package components is anchored by a base. The package’s standard base fits into a frame rack’s rectangular deck holes, while the Chief USH Clamp System is available for non-standard decks. From the base, the technician can use an assortment of short and long tubes, turnbuckles, locking wing nut assemblies, mounting plates, and clamps and bolts to build a secure connection up to the vehicle.

In the four-part video series, Perry demonstrates how to build a holding point using a vice clamp for frame-based trucks, and also how to create a large horizontal fixture, tall vertical fixture and short vertical fixture for unibody vehicles. The unibody holding points utilize surface plate attachments to connect to the vehicle’s suspension mounting points or upper rails. Each video is less than three minutes long, and shows all the steps needed to properly create the holding point.
