  • deck holding hooks

    was there a post on here to put grease on the deck holding hooks and pin to keep from wearing out?

    yes, somebody also posted something about wrapping the pin in something to prevent wear.

      If you put a small dab of grease on the top of the pin...clean it and reapply each month...the deck holding hook should never wear. Otherwise it is aluminum versus steel...the steel pin will always win.

        I couldn't agree more... We've seen hundreds of worn out hooks due to mal-adjustment and no lubrication!

          i was taught by brc years ago no oil or grease but that may have been when all was the one piece hooks and didnt have a really good ajustment like the slide ajustable ones... but still grease scares me on the hooks.. grease on the deck lift hooks but not on the holding hooks

            Thats absolutely wrong, always have a light film of grease on the pin elsewise the point will wear off of the hook, then you will really have something to worry about.

              And if you ever watched a deck fall off of a worn hook while you were clearing an OOR you would keep the pin greased!

                weve been greasing the hooks for a few yrs now, still have the point, and havent had to replace one yet.

                  Although I don't grease the pin itself, I do put a light film of grease on the underside of the hook where contact is made. This too has the same result in reducing wear. Very little grease will transfer to the pin and reduces the possibility of unfortunate accidental release. JMO

                    If the hook is worn when you first apply the grease...it may not hold...but that is exactly what you want to happen. It will let you know right away that the hook is not safe...if it will come off because of a little lubrication...then it might come off from vibration. Time to replace the hook at this point...but if you keep it lubed from then on...it will be the last time you replace it.
