Introductory offer. Until June 16, 2022, these sturdy yet precisely adjustable jacks are available in pairs at a saving of $69 compared to buying them individually at our regular price.
For positioning heavy items, these powerful and precise tools are tremendous assets. For example, they can quickly raise a cabinet, window frame or door to the exact height needed, then hold it steady as you drive fasteners. Constructed of heavy-gauge steel and aluminum with a 1/2" × 13/16" steel main shaft, each jack makes light work of lifting up to 330 lb. Using them in pairs not only doubles the weight capacity, but also distributes the load, so it’s easier to keep the item level and stable without need of a helper.
A full squeeze raises the lift bars 5/16", and a partial squeeze lets you gradually adjust the position in finer increments, to a maximum height of 8 1/2". If you overshoot the target, a controlled-release lever lets you lower the item in small decrements. A second lever allows a full release, letting the lift bars slide back to the start position.
The lift bars are 6mm (about 1/4") thick steel, with a bevelled edge that makes them easier to slip under an object. For use in narrower spaces, a low-profile 3mm thick base plate and lift bars assembly is available separately.
A jack can be used as a powerful pry, or to lift machinery and appliances to insert shims or adjust levelling feet. It can also be reversed for use as a heavy-duty clamp, helpful for tasks such as forcing bowed deck or floor boards into position before fastening.
Useful and substantial tools, very well made in Norway.
