Hi Dan,
I have a set of these that I will set up someday & have ideas on making them more securely installed & taking some steps to reduce wear from
the small contact area of the valve stems. I have never seen the parts in the upper corners, I assume they are for a more dispersed secure hold
down. They look impressive something you came up with?
Craig.

Hi Craig- not sure of the different style hold downs, but they seem more robust than the single long hex hold downs that are on the multilifts in my pictures. I'm assuming they might be an improved hold down design. The block part sits transverse across the lower frame/body and the discs contact the roof of the valve chamber and have circular grooves on the block side that are intended to dig into the block slightly to prevent any movement. ITs a pretty slick "improvement".

Hi Dan,
I would say so, I would love to see more as the hold downs seem to have been a issue for some & that looks like the answer. I also planed on putting valve lash caps on the valve stem spread the load out on the levers.
