First you'll notice the custom patent pending "distributed loading system" employed for this test. I stood on the test joint suspended between two frame tube blocks. This resulted in 170lbs being applied. Nothing happened. I then pulled up on the nearby work bench and applied more load...and more until I could not pull any harder. Other than a tiny deflection there was no damage. Repeating this later with a bathroom scale sent the needle off dial over 340lbs. So, 350lb sideways load test passed.
