Nov. 13, 2015—Six videos showing how to properly secure the new Ford F-150 to a frame rack for pulling or sectioning have been released by Chief Automotive.

“Using Chief’s F-150 holding system, technicians can anchor the new aluminum-bodied truck in up to 10 locations,” says Richard Perry, Chief OEM and strategic account sales manager, and host of the videos. “This helps to distribute pulling pressure evenly, which reduces the chance that additional damage will be inflicted into the body during the repair. Multiple holding points are also needed to secure the vehicle during sectioning to ensure it does not shift out of place. The new videos show how easy it is to use Chief’s holding system to create these anchoring points.”

Chief’s F-150 holding system adapters work with its Structural Holding Package and F.A.S.T. Anchoring System bases. The adapters include rigid cab mounts, pinch weld brackets and running board fixtures. All contents of the F-150 holding system come mounted on a rolling cart.
