Paul, the style shown in the link won't work for my lift as my platforms
hook over the beams blocking any place to hook the ramps.

However the ones Larry Spector is referring to would definitely work.  The
attachment method is simpler than pins and the fab shop down the road can
easily bend some aluminum diamond plate for me that should work just fine.

Thanks guys!
