I had purchased some longer torklift tiedowns to fit my frame mounted tie down points. I also acquired some fast guns with the purchase from my TC.

I want to trim the bottom hook portion to fit the fast gun uppers.

Does anyone out there have a system for measuring and cutting them to fit?

Thanks, everyone.


My system is to use a tape measure to determine the length of the threaded rod needed and use a hack saw to cut to length. Put a nut on first then remove after cutting to align the cut threads. After cutting too short, I then add a threaded chain connector on the tie down bracket to make it all fit.
