I was watching a show on Velocity (Wheeler Dealers).  One of the Mechs pulled a dent with a unique pulling system.  I saw the word "Flatliner" on the tool stand and it looks like it might be a European system.  He fixed a series of studs along the dent and then slipped a rod through the holes in the studs and then levered on the rod thereby picking up many of the studs and spreading the load out.  The studs were not pins but "keys" that welded on just like normal studs (see my 2 cent drawing below).  I was wondering if anyone knew where to get just the ''key" style studs?  Thanks if you do.

Can't help on the name.....but my panel shop pulled a dent out of my rocker panel with one of those units...very handy. If they hadn't had that unit, they'd have had to cut a section out of the rocker.
