Default hydrohoist side tie mounts

anyone have any pics of how they attached their hydrohoist to the dock? , I'm talking about the guides that slide down while still being attached to the dock, My HH was missing these dock mounts & I need to fab up something. We were just using 4x4 wood, but it works like sh$t, thanks,

The two steel poles that go verticle should have steel rings around them. Those rings are attached to a "clamp" style fixture that attaches to the dock at the upper portion of the dock and the lower portion of the dock. This allows the hoist to be secured to the dock and allows it to move in and out of the water.

From looking at the Hydrohoist website, looks like they've changed their design for the new hoist models. If you contact them, they are actually really cool. They send people out to check, repair, set-up your hoist or they can walk you through what you need on the phone.

how does that work? do you just let out the slack when lower the lift?

I had 4x4's as guide posts & a dock line tied to the dock to keep the lift close to the dock,

The older style side tie "B" lift uses steel posts and a ring to connect to the dock. There are two steel square tubes tied together at the top and bottom with a few inches of space between them. The tube closer to the lift has a large flat plate welded to it that bolts to a flange on the end of the crossbeams of the lift. They are probably 7 ft tall so that when the lift is fully submerged the top of the posts are at still a bit above the dock. There is a bracket that lag bolts to the dock with a large steel ring attached. The ring is captured between the two posts and bolted to the dock bracket with a U shaped clamp. The ring rides between the posts holding it to the dock and allowing the lift to move up and down.

The newer style lifts have the "euro" style dock brackets. There is one steel square tube 7 or 8 ft tall that's welded to a big piece if flat plate. The flat plate bolts to the same flanges on the lift crossbeams. There is a black PVC tube around 4 inch diameter 7 or 8 ft tall that slides down over the steel tube. Another piece of PVC about 2 ft long slides over the outside of the long PVC and slides up and down on it. The outer PVC tube has a flange on it that allows a rope to go thru it and you then tie that rope to a cleat on the dock. As the lift goes up and down the outer 2 ft PVC tube slides up and down over the outside of the long PVC tube. For it to work right you need to have a cleat on the dock pretty much lined up with the front and rear crossbeam of the lift.

I used to have a 2002 10k lift with the older style dock brackets and now I have a 20k lift with the euro style dock bracket........H20 toie's old lift actually. I might have pictures of both styles. If you want to PM me your email I'll see if I have some pictures I can email to you.
