Handy Chain Hook-Up Device
“I bolted a chain hook and grab hook together to make a handy device for lifting heavy loads with my chain hoist,” says Melvin Thies, Jacksonville, Ill.
  “I attach the chain hook to the hook on the hoist, and attach the grab hook to the chain securing the load. It fits tightly onto the chain. For example, I recently used the device to lift a riding mower deck into the back of my pickup.
  “I use the same idea when pulling out brush in the field with my tractor and a log chain. I made two sets of hooks so I can hook up more than one brush puller to the chain at a time. The grab hook keeps the load from shifting on the chain.  
  “The photos show two different ways I made the hooks.”
