Here are a few tips we want to share with you and ask that you please remember when using mechanical hydraulic air bottle jacks, especially when using them for repair purposes:
1. CAN BREAK OR BE DAMAGED
Although this lifting item can be extremely useful for certain situations, especially when lifting heavyweights, but you should never use them for hours on end. This can weaken the jack and make it less efficient and even break. You should only use these jacks when required to do so, they are not to be used on a long-term basis.
2. EXTRA SUPPORT IS ESSENTIAL
You should always use jack stands to work underneath your vehicle. This is because it can stop serious injury and stop you from being crushed. This is especially important if you work underneath a heavy vehicle.
3. MAKE SURE YOUR VEHICLE IS STATIONARY
You should always make sure your breaks are on when using mechanical jacks. You should also block your wheels with a brick or wedge a sturdy bit of material underneath the wheel to avoid rolling back. Additionally, you should only use the jack if you are away from a slope. If the situation seems too dangerous for you to repair then you should call someone to help you.
4. AVOID USING JACKS NEAR BUSY ROADS
It is not safe to jack your car when you are near traffic since you can easily be in an accident or get hit. Always make sure when you are using this item, or any for that matter, that you are in a safe location and that everything is secure. This is because if anything so much as slips out of place you will get hurt and it is better to be safe than sorry!
