I ordered the brackets and cam plates on August 8. No order confirmation or delay email yet. Wondering since they are passing out cam plates for free if I'll get a refund.

Just keep checking in from time to time. They sell out quick and will be unavailable periodically. It took about a week or two before I was able to place my order. From the sounds of the last response they may be available again. If not just try again in a day or two.

I reached out to Topsy to check, but are the red hooks no longer going to be available at all? I haven't heard back from them.

And if anyone here has a set that they'd be willing to part with, DM me, thanks! I'd love to have a set

They originally said they were doing a first run of red then switching to black after those ran out. There hasn’t been anything that I’ve seen that implied they would do red again. If you read back in this thread, someone painted them and it turned out great, so that’s always an option

Mike, thanks for the recommendation, I hadn't thought about painting them, but that definitely makes sense (I've seen other owners paint their tow hooks, etc.) I am awaiting a granite metallic JLU with black top and like the look of the red hooks. I appreciate the info! I'm sure Topsy could make a killing making matching colors (Hella Yella, Mojito, Punk'n, etc.) but I realize that's probably not feasible, ha!

While I'm here, I have another question. I am concerned with the *new* quality of the Racor hoist, given the reviews on Amazon, for example. I know Topsy was offering metal replacement cams, but are there other weak points I should be aware of? For me, the beefier the better, so I hate to order a Racor lift and be concerned about the safety of it. Anyone who has bought one lately, what are your thoughts since they're not made to the same quality as the older hoists?

Hahah me too! Got the same email.
I didn't get the email as I had ordered the hooks and the cam upgrade together. I was told I was getting a free tshirt!!!! Ummm, I'd rather the free cam upgrade everyone else is getting.

Some people have replaced the lag bolts with bigger stronger ones. I’m going to attach chains to the four corners with eye bolts in the joists as a safety precaution if there is a failure in the lift
