Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 1:
We often get asked; "Why don't you just use regular all thread rod and hardware to save a few bucks? The answer is simple. Durability! If you are only going to use the tool once, the standard, soft, mild steel all thread rod would maybe work fine, or maybe not. But for repeated use, the friction between the installer and rod would quickly mash the threads on those cheap hardware store rods and your money would be gone. We make our tools to last. Using heat treated rod, and domestic, certified hardware, gives us the confidence to supply our QuadTools to anybody! From Shade-Tree-Mechanics, to high production commercial or government users; and gives You the confidence they are going to do the job you need done.
