Clevis tabs

Anyone know where I can find the weld-on clevis tabs? I tried the two local heavy equipment suppliers but no luck. I have no easy way of cutting stock that thick to make my own.

I'm boycotting sigs. If ya wanna see what I have, check my profile.

Re: Clevis tabs

How 'bout this:

two pieces of 1/4" angle iron with their backs facing each other - like this:

Simply drill a hole thru the "backs" and weld the "butts" onto your bumper or flat surface. I'm planning to go this route when I build my bumper..

Re: Clevis tabs

Not a bad idea. I'd still like to find the trapeziod shaped ones (they're 3/4" thick).

Re: Clevis tabs

sketch what you want alllocked up, and Ill try and cut some at work on the cnc plasma rig.

Ive been thinking the same thing, then I found solid 2" square stainles 304, I think Ill make a reciever hitch with a big clevis on the end.

Re: Clevis tabs

That's what I ended up doing using 2 sections of 3"x1/4 angle with another 2-1/4 spacers in between and then welding them to a 2x4x1/4" bumper, worked well...

Re: Clevis tabs

Thanks Ozark!

No scanner, but here's the basic idea:

3/4" stock
Base is 3" long
Top is 1 3/4" long
Side is 1 3/4" long
3/4" hole for shackle/clevis

trapezoid shaped - know what I mean? How much are we looking at? I need 4.

Re: Clevis tabs

Ony problem with that is that it's not strong for anything other than a straight pull.

Re: Clevis tabs

I would suggest using the heaviest angle that will fit the clevis with the legs back to back. Rather than weld it onto the front, I'd cut slots in the bumper and insert them from the back, then weld front and back. <STRIKE> _||_ </STRIKE>


I've replaced so many parts that my old Jeep has become my new Jeep.
