Chief Releases New Video Series
Sept. 17, 2015—Chief Automotive Technologies has created a video series to show the many ways the Structural Holding Package can be used to secure a collision-damaged vehicle to a frame rack for repair, the company announced on Wednesday. The videos can be viewed here or on Chief’s video library page.
“No matter if you are sectioning or pulling, it is imperative that the vehicle is securely held during the repair,” said video series host Richard Perry, OEM and strategic account sales manager. “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.”
Each holding point created with Structural Holding Package components is anchored by a base. The package’s base fits into a frame rack’s rectangular deck holes. 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, clamps and bolts to build a secure connection to the vehicle.
The video series is split into four parts:
