I think they are sort of dammed if they do and dammed if they don't.  That's
the nature of our civil court system these days.  I wouldn't want to be a
crank-up tower manufacturer, especially in CA.

I agree with the fellow who said "if the cable aint broke, don't fix it."  I
have a 20+ year-old UST with the original cable and it still goes up and
down just fine.  The cable is discolored, but not rusty and all the strands
are intact.

Has anyone considered taking legal action to force US Tower to document
their products?  Their attitude on documentation is despicable. Actually, I
think they are shooting themselves in the foot. They should incur greater
liability by refusing to document the products than they would if they
published decent documentation full of prudent warnings. They actively sell
this stuff to us, so they have to expect us to install it, use it, maintain
it and try to repair it. I feel sorry for whoever turns out to be the first
fatal victim of withheld documentation. The resulting lawsuit may break the
logjam but it could also break UST.
