corner lifting clamps??

Post by jspfeffer »

I swear I have seen a post ... just not sure if it was this site.. or some other random site.. can't seem to find it.. Just need a sanity check..

I am often in need of lifting steel plate.. either 4'x4' or 8'x4' from about 1/2" to 1"

I could have sworn I saw a solution of taking some plate say 1/2" by 2" wide and welding them say 1 1/4" above each other and slide the contraption over the corner of sheets, and have a lifting eye on them.. to attach chains and lift with cherry picker. and lift horizontally

This captures the corners and short chains between them don't allow the brackets to slide off while lifting.. Any thoughts?

Thanks

I think you are correct, you may try changing the search name, we all don't call things the same.
I know there was a cam type clamp for lifting posted maybe 4 years back
here it is

HI thanks for the reply... not quite what I was talking about... it really wasn't a clamp in the sense that as you pick it up it exerts more force... it literally just slipped over the corner of material... and you used 4 of them.. one for each corner...with a chain or cable to keep them from sliding off..

Thanks for the links.. and the time.. Have a good one
