Modern vehicles manufactured with aluminum and other “exotic” materials require an updated approach to collision repair. With these new metals repair procedures are different. Sectioning is recommended as part of the repair procedures for many modern vehicles. In order to do this properly, it is important to hold the vehicle at strategic locations along the body so it does not shift out of place during the repair. The new Chief Structural Holding Package works with a Chief frame rack to provide these additional holding points. The system also can be used when pulling steel frames to distribute pressure evenly. This reduces the risk of inflicting further damage and makes easier to return a vehicle to OEM specifications.
The Chief Structural Holding Package includes more than 50 components that can be combined in a variety of ways to secure a vehicle at a wide range of holding points. Vice clamps are included for use on frame-based trucks and vans, while unibody vehicles can be secured at their suspension mounting points or upper rails with bolt-on surface plate attachments. The entire contents of the Structural Holding Package come neatly arranged on a rolling tool board to keep everything organized and easy to move.

Vertical fixtures can mount to locations such as the suspension mounting areas creating a very strong hold for structural repairs.
The large horizontal fixture allows the ability to hold and control the end of a rail or structure for alignment or replacement of that component..
The structural holding package can be used to make eight point holding where needed with suspension in or out.
The system can be used for Unitized and Full Frame vehicles utilizing the vise clamp to hold full frame rails.
