These are a *touch* too big to stick in you inline chassis.

At 1:45 and 2:08, are those C-clamps simply friction attached to lift the frame? I couldn't see a hole/pin or anything to grab hold of. OMG if that's it. Not a safety and quality issue there at all...

Tim,

 

I'm guessing that the angle of the chain from the C-clamp to the centered chain hook above keeps the pressure on the clamp pulling towards the inside rather than vertically.  Still not very safe looking.....

A JK Hawk Retro is much safer to handle.

Oh, you'd loved the items we used at the scrap yard I worked at in the 70s... it was a sling attached to 2 gripping devices that used cams to grip the raised edge of 55 gallon drums. Ya know that 3/8 to 9/16 lip around the top of the drum? Yeah, that... lifting 1500 to 2000 pounds... routinely an never a failure... I would figure Baldor engineers have most likely approved the lifting method used in their plant.
