Due to the extreme leverage when using side mount brackets do not attempt to install a lift any larger than 8,000 lbs total on the BH-USA Side Mount bracket # 50064. Always compound any lift when using a side mount bracket to distribute the load. Mount lift as close to the piling as possible and must have the load at 5 1/2 in. from channel face. When compounding make sure both sides’ dead man is facing the bracket channel to insure load does not pass the 5.5″ mark. NEVER attempt to install a lift using boat slings with side mount brackets. Brackets must be mounted outside of lift points at standard pile mount locations. For Heavier applications up to a 10,000 lb lift, use BH-USA Heavy Duty Side Mount Brackets # 84893 The HD brackets have extra gussets welded to the bracket. Regardless of bracket size, never attempt to lift more than a 10,000 lb boat on side mount brackets.
