What type of mold? Injection, transfer, or compression. I have a couple of swags that work fairly well. I have found some products that work extreamly well. All I work on is injection molds (for 30 years). You can email me at gsilberberg@progressive-plastics.net I will do what ever I can to help.

Progressive Components has a moving or sliding eye bolt. Or you can do like I do...calculate the weight of the plates, do slight bit of S.W.A.G. and you will be very close. Basicaly just calculate the over all rectangle. Subtract the volume of the ej housing (air) and pick the point. Solid works, AutoCad also have some of these calculations. The Progressive Components part is realy the best and simplest. They have a web site and a catalog that can be stuck right into AutoCad. Hey sorry this response was so late.
