Base Plate for Jack
The 4 point jack adapter offers the versatility to hold just about anything that is large, heavy and awkward with your transmission or floor jack. Modular design allows easy assembly and reconfiguration for different objects to be held. The perforated supports offer quick adjustment and hold the main load. The threaded supports use slotted bars that offer a lot of adjustment and plenty of strength. The threaded supports can still be offset from the base plate to support uneven loads(front axle). Spring snap buttons are used in the telescoping tube to prevent over extension and allow easy disassembly when pressed. Two base plates are offered for floor jacks or transmission jacks with a flat base. A jam bolt on the base plate locks the main bar in place to prevent shifting while moving. Powder coated finish for great durability.

- Easily converts most jacks to safely hold front and rear solid axles, fuel tanks, transfer cases, manual transmissions, bumpers, etc.
-Telescopic tubing lets you put the support points where they need to be
-Main bars adjust from 16-28” wide, are pinned for easy setup and provide solid load points
-Threaded bars adjust from 6-20” wide and provide fine adjustments to stabilize the load
-800 lbs. capacity at maximum extension
-Made in Oregon, USA

Floor jack or Transmission jack?
A floor jack is your standard jack for lifting cars(don't lift yours with the jack adapter) and this adapts your jack to also work on lighter, but more awkward objects. A standard floor jack with the 4 point adapter works good, but it's recommended to get some tall jack stands because the jack adapter adds about 6 inches to your jack.  A transmission jack has a head unit that gives two more axis of rotation and a large base plate with arms(for transmissions), these jacks can be low on the floor or high for under vehicle lifts. The jack adapter works WAY better on a good transmission jack then a standard floor jack, having the ability to adjust the awkward thing you are moving is very helpful. Cheap tranny jacks have a lot of slop that needs to be taken up and can still be a little excessive, but once you get familiar to using the jack adapter and finding the balance point its no big deal. If you are only using the jack adapter for solid axles the 3 point is just fine, but the 4 point is better at that and everything else.


Floor jack base plate - New updated  - the fourth picture shows the updated base plate
Machined for newer floor jacks that bolt together and we still include a pin that presses into the base for older jacks with 1 3/16" pins. There are two styles of bolt on base plates, this will fit one of those, the other style will be added soon. This works with floor jacks that have a lip with the base removed(bolt on style). To check your jack, remove the base and look at the jack, if there is a lip sticking up your good, if the jack is flat then it won't work yet.

Floor base bolt pattern - 4" x 6 ½" - The new floor base could also double as a transmission jack base plate as long as your jack works with the bolt pattern.

Transmission jack base plate - Comes with multiple bolt patterns for common transmission jacks. If your bolt pattern isn't on the base plate, then drill a new one, there's plenty of room.

jack adapter
Jack adapter appears well made and finish is good. Fast shipping. Side bars should help stabilize manual transmission/transfer case. Ordered bumper/door extension adapter at same time.
