Product Safety Reminders

Floor Jacks:

  • Do not attempt to lift loads heavier than the rated capacity of the jack.
  • Do not use the jack to lift a vehicle and then to move the load. The wheels on the Floor Jack are intended for moving the jack, not for rolling (“dollying”) the load.
  • After lifting the vehicle lower it on to jack stands to support it while working on it. The wheels on the floor jack may allow the vehicle to move and fall off the jack.
  • Always make sure that the handle is turned tightly closed when lifting a vehicle. Failure to tightly close the valve may allow the hydraulic fluid to leak-down resulting in lowering of the vehicle.
  • Read and follow the instructions and safety messages in the Owner’s Manual that accompanies the jack.
