Gary - This is a good summary. I want to point out this violation applies to any device that is not approved by the forklift manufacturer, not just ones that are fabricated to fit a forklift as in the case cited. The use of clamps, etc. that are purchased from industrial supply companies, i.e. a 55-gallon drum clamp, etc. is also prohibited unless the manufacturer provides written approval.
