I lay a towel on the section to be lifted between the brick and the lifter to avoid damaging the soft brick.
I had to add extra handles to accommodate the extra hooks on the lifter as the kiln only comes with 2 handles per section.
The hooks almost fall right into place when the assembly is lowered into place .
This system works like a dream.
The contrast between what I came up with on my own and what I have now with the help of someone who knows what they are doing is sort of embarrassing.
