    I hang mine from an eye I put above the 3ph area with a heavy rubber bungie. Top link just sits there a little above horizontal but I can move it anywhere with one hand for easy hook up. When I unhook I just pull the pin on the impliment and the top link just goes where it is supposed to w/o having to touch it. Not to pretty or professional but very handy.

I switch to a hydraulic system. How have others done this?

    I use a tarp strap. I need to get another quick hitch and I will not have to worry about it.

    Roger, that is no restriction, not when it comes to a 3pt link anyway. The restrictors that I sell are.032 for the 2" cylinders, .045 for the 2 1/2" cylinders and .062 for the 3" cylinders. Trust me when I say that 99% of the time it is an easier process when you have the flow restrictors. I was like you and did not really need any. I could make adjustments fine without them. But oh is it soooo much easier with them.

    They are a copy of a Bosch valve that someone else is manufacturing some where in Europe. "Hydraulic set" is what I am told. But I honestly don't know other than they work good.

    I bought another handle from JD parts and made a bracket to clamp it on
