*******www.etrailer****/tv-Hitch-Install-2009-Saturn-Outlook.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturers installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2009 Saturn Outlook we are going to install part number 75528 from Draw-Tite. This also applies to part number 87435 from Hidden Hitch. The first thing we need to do is remove this small panel at the bottom of the bumper here. There are two little tabs that you just twist, it removes, that is it. The actual panel itself will stay off because the hitch will be in the way from here on out. :26 Now we need to lower the exhaust to give us some working room on the passenger side of the vehicle. There is one on each side of the muffler. We will spray down the rubber hanger here with some lubricant. Now that we have it lubricated, we are going to push pull the exhaust hangers off the exhaust. With the exhaust cleared out of the way we can show you were the attaching points will be on the vehicle. :55 First off, looking at the driver side of the vehicle we have these two threaded holes right here that we are going to use. They will be the same on both sides of the frame. On the bumper structure itself there are two more threaded holes here and here that the hitch will use also. Next thing we want to do is clean out the threads on the frame, we are going to use a lubricant to loosen all the junk in there. We will go ahead and run our hitch bolt in to make sure we get everything cleared out. Now the older the vehicle the worse it is going to be. It may take some time to run the bolts in and out. 1:28 At this point we can lift the hitch up in position and install the bolts. It is a good idea to have an extra set of hands to hold up the other side until you get the bolts installed. Now take the two bolts that are going through the bumper structure, leaving our hitch as loose as possible, we will go ahead and thread these bolts in. Once we get everything started we can snug down the bolts and then torque them down as specified in the instructions. With our hitch torqued down we can go ahead and reinstall the exhaust hangers. Now that we have the vehicle off the life we are going to give you a couple measurements to help you hitch accessories for your vehicle. First off, from the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 19-3/8 inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outside edge of the bumper is looking about 5 inches. That will finish our install of Draw-Tite part number 75528 on a 2009 Saturn Outlook.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-2006-ford-escape-hybrid.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid we are going to install part number 13650 from Curt. First step is to lower the exhaust so we have a little more access. Basically, there is going to be one bolt that the exhaust covers up. We are going to lower it right now and get it out of the way, so we will not have any problems when we need to tighten it up. We are going to spray the hangers down with some lubricant and pry them off. :26 Now we can show you the attaching points we will be using on the frame of the vehicle. The hitch will be using this hole and this hole on the side of the frame. And also this hole here at the bottom of the frame. It is going to be identical on both sides of the vehicle. :47 Looking at the passenger side of the vehicle, we are going to start installing the hardware. First off, we are going to use our bolt leader, push it through the hole we are going to use, and lead it through the access hole which is at the very back of the frame right here. First, we will take our block, and push that into the frame, and then we will thread on our bolt, push everything inside, and move everything around until you pull it out of the bottom. Next we will repeat the same process back over on the driver side. We are almost ready to install the hitch, the one thing I want to point out is that this one block here is going to be placed between the hitch and the frame right here. It may be a good idea to tape this to the hitch, and then put everything together. 1:31 Lets go ahead and install the hitch, it is a good idea to have an extra set of hands to help hold it up, since it is a little awkward to hold the hitch up and thread the bolt through. On the bottom we will install a conical tooth washer and nut. On the driver side, push it around the arms and push up. We are not going to tighten the two bolts we just installed, we are going to leave them looks because we need the ability to move the hitch around to line up the two holes in the frame. If you can not get these to quiet line up you can use a large screw driver and take it and push it in there and manipulate the hitch over a little bit more and give it some leverage to push it over more. We will do a quick test fit with the bolt, we are good. Lets go ahead and pull our hardware through. We will install our conical tooth washer and the nut on the bolt. Now that we have all our bolts installed, lets snug them down and then go back and torque them down as specified in the instructions. Now we can go ahead and reinstall our exhaust. 2:58 Now that we have the vehicle off the lift we will give you a couple measurements on the hitch that will help you get a better idea of what accessories to for our vehicle. On this particular vehicle, from the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 16-5/8th inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outside edge of the bumper is approximately 1-1/2 inches. That will finish our install of part number 13650 from Curt on a 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-2006-nissan-murano.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2006 Nissan Murano we are going to install part number 87448 from Hidden Hitch. This is also going to apply to Draw-Tite part number 75148. The first thing we need to do is remove the tie down hook that is located on the driver side frame rail. There are two bolts on the side and two on the bottom. Next we will go ahead and remove this exhaust hanger right here. There are four bolts, two on this side, and two on the other side. Before we go any further, we are going to run this strap around the exhaust system to keep it from falling down and damaging anything. We will unbolt our last hanger right here. :44 That was all the hangers that we needed to unbolt on the passenger side, now back on the driver side here all we have to do is slip these two rubber hangers off the hangers from the muffler. We will spray those down with some lubricant, it helps to have a wooden block to push up against. Now we can lower the strap and the exhaust to a level we can work with. Now we can show you the attachment points on the frame of the vehicle. it is going to use these three attachment points as shown here. The passenger side is going to be the same. 1:14 This vehicle has been on the road for awhile now, you can tell by the threaded holes that are open, but have some rust in there. It is a good idea to run the bolt in there first, and try to break some of the rust free. You also want to rinse it out with some lubricant and run the bolt in and out a few times. So it is pretty easy to do. At this point we can go ahead and start installing our hitch. It is a good idea to have an extra set of hands to hold it up there. We are going to install it with our bolt and conical tooth washer. It is probably easiest to start off with the bolt hole that is closest to the bumper and work your way back. Once you have all the hardware installed, move it back and fourth if you can and try to center it up as best as possible. Then we will go ahead and snug down the bolts. At this point we can torque down the bolts as specified in the instructions. 1:58 At this point we can go ahead and reinstall the exhaust. It will probably be a good idea to work on the driver side first, and then go back over to the passenger side. Now that we have the vehicle off the lift, lets go ahead and give you a couple measurements that will help you out when choosing accessories. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 14-3/4 inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outside edge of the bumper is 7 inches. That will include the install for part number 87448 from Hidden Hitch on this 2006 Nissan Murano.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-2010-Chevy-Traverse.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2010 Chevrolet Traverse we are going to install part number 75528 from Draw-Tite. This is also going to apply to Hidden Hitch part number 87435. Our next steps involved is to take this panel that is at the bottom of the bumper in the center and we are going to remove it. All you do is twist the two knobs to unlock it and you can pull it apart. The cover that was right here is going to have to stay off because it was not made for this hitch. Our next step is going to be lower the exhaust. We are going to spray down the rubber hangers with some lubricant and we are going to push them off to the side that way we can lower our exhaust. 00:34 There is going to be one on this side and there is going to be one hidden behind the bumper cover over here. Now we can show you where the hitch mounts up on to the vehicle. These two threaded holes at the bottom of the frame, the hitch is going to attach there and on this vehicle on the bumper structure there is two unthreaded holes right here that we are going to use. Back over on the driver side of the vehicle it is going to be the same two threaded holes as it was on the passenger side. Even though this is a brand new vehicle this is a good idea to run a bolt up and down in the threads just to make sure everything is cleaned out. 01:15 Of course on older vehicles you have to more to clean out some more rust and grime that forms inside. The kit comes with two different types of bolts. It has a standard American bolt and it also comes with a metric bolt. The metric bolts are going to be the ones that go into the bottom of the frame and the standard American thread bolts are going to be installed into the bumper structure itself. So just so you do not get these confused the standard thread will not fit into the metric thread. You only get two of these and four of these for the threaded holes in the frame. At this point we can start installing the hitch onto the vehicle. We will take one part of the hitch and rest it on the muffler and then we will thread in the bolts on the other side. To install this we are going to be using a conical tooth washer and metric bolt. Our driver side is done. We will repeat the same process back over on the passenger side. When we run our bolts in we are going to leave them a little loose so we can move the hitch around so it will help us line up the bolts in the center of the bumper structure. To install the hard wiring back to the bumper structure we are going to be using this part, this is called a handle nut. Basically you take the handle of this nut and form it the way you want it to reach inside the frame and we will thread our bolt inside of here. 02:33 You can take it and basically bend it any way you want so you have it over the hole. Since we have got our handle in here lets get started with that, we are also going to install the spacer between the hitch and the bumper structure and we are going to install our standard American bolt into the handle nut. Once you have it started you can take the handle and push it up out of the way. Now we are going to go on the other side of the receiver and repeat the same process. We will tighten down the bolts by hand and then we will torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions. Now we will torque down the bolts for the bumper structure. We have got our driver side torqued down we will do the same thing for the passenger side. Lets move on and reattach the exhaust. We have got the vehicle off the lift now. Lets give you a couple of measurements on the hitch itself to help you a ball mount or any other hitch accessories. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground on this particular vehicle is 18-3/ 4 inches. The center of the hitch pin hole to the outside edge of the bumper is 7 inches. With that, that will finish our install of part number 75528 from Draw-Tite.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-2010-mini-cooper.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2010 Mini Cooper hardtop, we are going to install part number 11160 from Curt. The first step involved in this is that we need to remove the entire bumper cover to the vehicle. We will open up the hatch and there are two screws here that we need to remove. What we are going to do next is take off the rear tires, you do not have to do this, but it makes it easier to see what is going on. Next thing we need to do is get behind the fender liner here, because there are some fasteners for the bumper cover. There is one, two, three fasteners that we need to remove to gain access. :46 This wire harness going to the running lights here, this needs to come apart, push down this little button and it comes apart. Then we need to get access to this fastener right here, it is a little plastic rivet, just split it apart. You can see how the bumper cover is now separated from the rear arch. We will repeat that back over on the driver side. Still working on the fender well here, what we need to do next is unsnap this trim piece from the bumper cover. You have to push that way, and away. Then we have one screw right here that we need to undo. 1:30 On some models, like the Cooper S we will have two screws. On this regular model here, the Mini Cooper, it looks like it only has one bolt to remove right here. Now that we have all the fasteners removed, we can now remove our bumper cover. Now, we will remove this part of the bumper structure right here. Before I take the bumper structure off, we are going to release the clips that are holding the wiring to the bumper structure. This foam here has a little electrical component that fits inside here. I believe it is going to come off with the bumper structure so we will remove this component. Lets give the hitch a test fit now. It looks like the hitch sits a little high due to the heat shield here, but this bends so we can push it down as needed. At this point we need to install the hitch and the bumper cover at the same time. It is defiantly a good idea to have an extra set of hands for this. We are going to zip-tie the two pieces together to hold them in place until we get our bolts in, and then we will remove the zip ties. We have the two pieces tied together, you can see where we need to cut our foam so everything sits nicely. Lets go ahead and reinstall the bumper structure and hitch, you will need an extra set of hands to help you hold it and put everything together. 3:29 Now that we have our bumper structure loosely installed with the hitch, just by one factory bolt, we will go ahead and install the rest of the hardware. We will use a factory bolt and a conical tooth washer supplied with the hitch. Once we have the bolts snugged down, we can torque them down as specified in the instructions. We will take our wire harness and push it back into place. Take the module and put it in this little slot. Before we put our bumper cover into place we are going to show you that this senter section has to be removed for you to use the draw bar and the hitch. Now we will show you how to remove it, it is pretty simple. There are two clips here and here. You can push those in and then pop off the center section. Now we are good to go. At this point, we can reassemble the bumper cover itself. 4:25 Now that we have the vehicle off the lift, we will give you a couple measurements that will help in ing accessories for your hitch. From the ground to the top of the receiver opening is about 16 inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole, to the outside edge of the bumper is about 6 inches. With that, that will finish our install of part number 11160 from Curt on this 2010 Mini Cooper.

What is a Bunion? - Podiatrist in Winter Haven *******www.flfootandankle**** A bunion is an enlargement of the joint at the base of the big toe—the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint—that forms when the bone or tissue at the big toe joint moves out of place. This forces the toe to bend toward the others, causing an often painful lump of bone on the foot. Since this joint carries a lot of the bodys weight while walking, bunions can cause extreme pain if left untreated. The MTP joint itself may become stiff and sore, making even the wearing of shoes difficult or impossible. Bunions from the Latin bunio, meaning enlargementcan also occur on the outside of the foot along the little toe, where it is called a bunionette or tailors bunion. Symptoms Development of a firm bump on the outside edge of the foot, at the base of the big toe. Redness, swelling, or pain at or near the MTP joint. Corns or other irritations caused by the overlap of the first and second toes. Restricted or painful motion of the big toe. How Do You Get a Bunion? Bunions form when the normal balance of forces that is exerted on the joints and tendons of the foot becomes disrupted. This can lead to instability in the joint and cause the deformity. They are brought about by years of abnormal motion and pressure over the MTP joint. They are, therefore, a symptom of faulty foot development and are usually caused by the way we walk, and our inherited foot type, our shoes, or other sources. Although bunions tend to run in families, it is the foot type that is passed down—not the bunion. Parents who suffer from poor foot mechanics can pass their problematic foot type on to their children, who, in turn, are also prone to developing bunions. The abnormal functioning caused by this faulty foot development can lead to pressure being exerted on and within the foot, often resulting in bone and joint deformities such as bunions and hammertoes. Other causes of bunions are foot injuries, neuromuscular disorders, or congenital deformities. People who suffer from flat feet or low arches are also prone to developing these problems, as are arthritic patients and those with inflammatory joint disease. Occupations that place undue stress on the feet are also a factor; ballet dancers, for instance, often develop the condition. Wearing shoes that are too tight or cause the toes to be squeezed together is also a common factor, one that explains the high prevalence of the disorder among women. What Can You Do For Relief? Apply a commercial, nonmedicated bunion pad around the bony prominence. Wear shoes with a wide and deep toe box. If your bunion becomes inflamed and painful, apply ice packs several times a day to reduce swelling. Avoid high-heeled shoes over two inches tall. See your podiatric physician if pain persists. Conservative Treatment For Bunion Pain Treatment options vary with the type and severity of each bunion, although identifying the deformity early in its development is important in avoiding surgery. Podiatric medical attention should be sought at the first indication of pain or discomfort because, left untreated, bunions tend to get larger and more painful, making nonsurgical treatment less of an option.

Bunions - Podiatrist in Chelmsford and Newburyport, MA *******www.nefootankle**** What Is a Bunion?

This forces the toe to bend toward the others, causing an often painful lump of bone on the foot.

Conservative Treatment For Bunion Pain Treatment options vary with the type and severity of each bunion, although identifying the deformity early in its development is important in avoiding surgery. Podiatric medical attention should be sought at the first indication of pain or discomfort because, left untreated, bunions tend to get larger and more painful, making non surgical treatment less of an option. The primary goal of most early treatment options is to relieve pressure on the bunion and halt the progression of the joint deformity. A podiatric physician may recommend these treatments: Padding & Taping Often the first step in a treatment plan, padding the bunion minimizes pain and allows the patient to continue a normal, active life. Taping helps keep the foot in a normal position, thus reducing stress and pain. Medication Anti-inflammatory drugs and cortisone injections are often prescribed to ease the acute pain and inflammations caused by joint deformities. Physical Therapy Often used to provide relief of the inflammation and from bunion pain. Ultrasound therapy is a popular technique for treating bunions and their associated soft tissue involvement. Orthotics Shoe inserts may be useful in controlling foot function and may reduce symptoms and prevent worsening of the deformity. When early treatments fail or the bunion progresses past the threshold for such options, podiatric surgery may become necessary to relieve pressure and repair the toe joint. Surgical Options Several surgical procedures are available to the podiatric physician The surgery will remove the bony enlargement, restore the normal alignment of the toe joint, and relieve pain. A simple bunionectomy, in which only the bony prominence is removed, may be used for the less severe deformity. Severe bunions may require a more involved procedure, which includes cutting the bone and realigning the joint. Recuperation takes time, and swelling and some discomfort are common for several weeks following surgery. Pain, however, is easily managed with medications prescribed by your podiatric physician.

Custom Orthotics and Feet Problems - Chiropodist in Toronto, ON Chiropodist Marz Hardy of Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics discusses Custom Orthotics for Foot Problems. *******www.academyclinics**** When you take a step, your foot typically hits the ground heel first and rolls toward your toes, flattening the arch slightly. As you push off the ball of your foot, your arch springs back and does not touch the ground. That's how normal feet are supposed to work. Unfortunately, many feet aren't normal. Overpronation occurs if your foot rolls too much toward the inside. This can cause arch strain and pain on the inside of the knee. Underpronation occurs if your foot rolls too much to the outside. Underpronation can lead to ankle sprains and stress fractures. You can relieve foot pain by compensating for these tendencies, but first you need to determine which way your feet roll. One method for determining which kind of pronation you have is the watermark test: Put your feet into a bucket of water, then make footprints on a piece of dark paper. • If your footprint looks like an oblong pancake with toes, you pronate excessively or may have flat feet. Try molded-leather arch supports, which can be purchased in many drug stores. And when shopping for athletic shoes, ask a sales clerk for styles with control features—soles designed to halt the rolling-in motion. If arch supports or sports shoes don't help, please contact our office for a custom-molded orthotics. • If there's little or no connection in your footprint between the front part of the foot and the heel, you under-pronate or have a high arch. This means a lot of your weight is landing on the outside edge of your foot. Ask for stability athletic shoes, which are built with extra cushioning to remedy this problem. If you are prone to ankle sprains, wear high-top athletic shoes that cover the foot and ankle snugly to minimize damage from twists. Visit our website: *******www.academyclinics****

Custom Orthotics - Chiropodist in Sarnia, London and Chatham, ON Chiropodist Jamie Maczko of Mazcko Chiropody and Orthotic Centre discusses how custom orthotics can help correct biomechanical problems of the foot to alleviate heel pain and other foot problems. *******www.maczkochiropody**** Chiropody and Orthotics Written on December 28th, 2010 Feet are an amazing complex structure containing one quarter of the body’s bones, held together with ligaments, muscles, tendons and fascia. Each day they carry you smoothly and efficiently through thousands of steps. Sometimes biomechanical problems develop interrupting smooth, pain free gait (walking). Careful examination of your feet and gait, by a Chiropodist, is an essential step in correctly addressing your foot problems. Biomechanical problems can be simply due to body structure or related to a medical condition. In order to address a biomechanical problem, your chiropodist may prescribe custom orthotics. Custom orthotics alter the way your feet interact with the ground. Everyone’s feet, legs, hips and biomechanics are unique. Improper foot alignment or skeletal imbalances can cause pain throughout your body by overstressing muscles, tendons, bones and joints. As you walk, custom orthotics help to control your foot motion and weight distribution. They work to eliminate the specific causes of your pain, not just the symptoms. Chiropodists, Podiatrists and Orthotists are the only professions in Ontario who are licensed to prescribe, manufacture and dispense custom orthotics. Many other paramedical professions provide orthotics or arch supports but their educational background and biomechanical knowledge does not allow them to be licensed in this province. When you walk, the first part of your foot to hit the ground is the outer edge of your heel, and then your foot pronates (rolls inwards). This is good, up to a point. Pronation ”unlocks” the foot, allowing it to absorb the shock of your body hitting the ground. Too little pronation sends the shock of landing up your leg and can result in shin splints, knee, hip and/or back pain. Too much supination (the foot rolls on its outside edge too far when landing on the ground during heel strike) and you will not push off your body weight properly, leading to callus buildup or corns, often under your little toe. Problems can present at any stage of the walking process, and custom prescribed orthotics address your specific problem. Therefore, careful examination of your feet and gait by a chiropodist is essential. No orthotic can be truly considered custom without a thorough biomechanical examination, gait analysis and a three dimensional volumetric casting of the feet. Orthotics come in a variety of materials, ranging from rigid plastics to soft foams. Soft orthotics tend to provide cushioning and protection while rigid orthotics provide biomechanical control. Most adults require some control and cushioning combined. While prescribing your orthotics the chiropodist will endeavor to choose the proper choices of materials to fit your specific needs to provide maximum support and comfort. Rigid orthotics are made from strong thermal plastics or graphite materials. They provide maximum control to improve the foots function (performance). They are sometimes used for growing children to control/ resolve biomechanical issues. Semi-rigid orthotics control foot movement and provide some shock absorption. They use flexible plastics and help to reduce pain due to over used strained soft tissues in the feet and legs. Soft orthotics cushion the feet when standing/ walking, but do little to control the foot biomechanics. Accommodative orthotics protect the feet form the stresses of standing / walking. They often incorporate foams or cork material and may have indentations or raised area to take pressure off of painful areas of the feet.

*******www.ritehite****/products/other/barrier-systems/gatekeeper-mezzanine-safety-gate As companies look to maximize existing space within their facilities, many are installing mezzanines to create additional storage space or work areas. While mezzanines provide an effective solution for increasing square footage, they also present a potentially hazardous situation when it comes to the loading and unloading of materials at the edge of the mezzanine. Fall handrails and gates are required around the edges of the mezzanine. These gates need to be open during the loading and unloading process creating the potential for a serious or even fatal injury in the event of an accidental fall. To help address this potentially fatal situation, Rite-Hite Barrier Systems introduces the Gatekeeper Mezzanine Safety Gate. The reciprocating barrier design creates a controlled access area. It allows workers to safely load and unload from the edge of a mezzanine platform. Here's how it works. After a pallet is loaded onto the mezzanine a worker on top of the mezzanine will open the GateKeeper and remove the material from the work zone. During this time the gate is securely in position on the outside edge of the mezzanine. After loading or unloading is complete the gate is closed to allow the forklift to remove any items in the work zone. Some additional features include the safety latch which presents a worker from raising the gate from inside the works zone. The exclusive link bar design insures that both gates always work in unison without relying on chains or cables that are used on other mezzanine gates The unique toe board design prevents material from accidentally being pushed off the top of the mezzanine down to a lower level . Guarded track and three inch nylon rollers with sealed precision bearings provide for smooth and maintenance free activation. In addition the GateKeeper meets ANSI standard MH 28.3 2009 stating that gates that swing open slide open or lift out leaving an unprotected opening in the guarding are not acceptable. Available in multiple sizes the GateKeeper is designed to create a safe working environment on your mezzanine. In addition an optional powered unit allows for easier operation of larger units.
