Safe Jack It took just over 2 weeks to arrive and it was possible to track it at every way point. The only confusing bit was an alert telling me that delivery had been attempted and failed. This got me wondering how I managed to miss it and if it may have been taken to a wrong address. There was no card pushed through the letter box. The best explanation appears to be that “attempted delivery” was one of a limited number of options available to the update inputter. What they were trying to tell me was that there was a customs charge which would prevent delivery until paid. Two days later the ransom demand appeared, was paid, and the package was released and delivered the next day. It cost me $309 including a canvass bag which equated to approximately £221. Rather a lot for a jack stand I’ll admit. But I couldn’t find anything like it in the UK and every time I use it, the potential disaster it could avert is beyond monetary measure. I got hit with a VAT charge of £37.41 and a clearance fee of £11.25. It weighs in at 5.5Kg and I can vouch for its weight and sturdy construction because I am now sitting with a black and swollen ankle, in a cold pack after dropping the bloody thing. At least I managed to get my feet out of the way. This is the entire kit. Camera phone. Poor quality alert. There are two types of shoes, a flat one with slightly raised corners (top left) and below them in the photo, a couple of seam grippers. For some reason they supplied two of each type. They also sent me two packs of pins and two canvass bags. This fella is the horizontal top support. It is shown above without a shoe attached (the shoe attaches via the hole). This is the minimum extra clearance you will require above your jack pad to fit this between the jack pad and the jacking point on the car. The height is 4.4cm. If a flat shoe with curved corners is placed on top of the bar, the clearance increases to 5.2cm. I use one of these between the car and the jack With the shoe on the top of the horizontal member, plus m puck, the total clearance is 7.7cm, although that will reduce to about 6.8cm when the puck top is pushed up into the jacking point on the car. This is the assembled jack at minimum height. The minimum height is 27.5cm. With the flat shoe and rubber puck on top, the minimum height is 31cm. When the legs are extended to their maximum height, the overall height is 40.5cm or 44cm with the shoe and puck on top. So about 43cm is the maximum height this stand will hold your car at when used with a shoe and a puck.. I think it is rather expensive. However, once I’ve used it a few times and it’s been up and down the street with a few neighbours, it won’t seem to have been so expensive. And although my neighbours are considerate and careful, it’s nice to have some spare bits for it. Everything fits neatly into the canvas bag, which has a remarkably small footprint. “In action” report to follow in due course. Based on time spent with it so far, I am prepared to recommend it as a rather clever and sturdy axle stand and an effective Friday night special!, if you're looking to do someone's legs!
