    I just installed a Sno-way 26 series on my 2005 Dodge Ram and I have 1 part left over. This part is a small steel bracket with a clevis pin and coated with red plastic. Ihave found a picture on line and it is called a cylnder lock but I have no idea where it goes. Any helpwould be apreciated. Thanks

    Thanks for choosing Sno-Way, we appreciate your business.

    The part that you describe is a cylinder lock clamp that we provide for 2 reasons.

    When the plow is fully raised you can put the clamp around the lift cylinder ram and reinsert the pins and it becomes a transport safety clamp. Also if you would have a failure with the lift and need to get to a retailer for repair, the clamp is the device that would allow you to keep the plow in a raised position to transport to the retailer for service.

    If you put some green paint on it they make a nice decoration for the tree too. J/K
    Tom's answer is the best one tho.

    LoL just to give you a little more insight on if you had a lift failure what the easiest way to lift the plow would be LoL..

    find a pile of snow you stacked and run the plow up the pile then install the cylinder lock .. I know from having this happen when I had a weld go.. Beats getting out the jack LoL

    more pennys from me :)
