    See if there is a bolt near the middle and attach it to there or just drill a hold somewhere in between your control brace.

    We have Scags we drilled bolt holes in the control panel and attached the chains there. We put a hook on the end so we could just hook the sulkey to the chain when we were finished.

    We use a bungie cord...it's quicker up/down and you don't get grease all over your hands from the chain/clip.

    i have a hole drilled in the center below the grips. i have a clip which i yanked off a chain on the top, attached a carribeaner (sp) to the bottom of that, and just hook that onto the sulky. i used to use a bungie cord, but unless you have a rubber one with very minimal "give" it will bounce all over, mine would actually bounce out of its hole when on the truck.
