    Anybody have a pic or good description of the release hook used on conventional mount (Speedcast) plows. I did not find any info on the Fisher website.

    I need to make something to pull and twist the connecting pin when removing the plow. I really don't wan to crawl under there and do it by hand. Things could happen real quick for an old (44) guy like me.

    Get some cold rolled round bar. Heat up one end to make a hook that will fit the pin handles. The it should be about 36"-40" long depending on the model plow and truck. Whatever is comfortable. Bend the other end 90 degrees for about 10 inches, this is the handle. Then bend two inches 90 degress back down on the end

    I have also made them by welding a piece to the end to make a T handle.

    Do you mean this?

    It's 3 feet long, hand is 5 inches, with an inch bend back to make a C. I'm sure you can make it as long as you want.
    The hook part well just make a hook.

    Wow, pretty simple but looks like it should work well.

    I just use a pice of chain with a hook on it cause the snaping tight of chain pulls the pins right open. :gunsfiring:
