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 also 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. A jam bolt on the base plate locks the main bar in place to prevent shifting while moving. Powder coated and Zinc plated steel. Made in the USA.

- 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 USA

Floor jack base plate  - the third picture shows the updated base plate
SD bolt on - Most common newer style, has lip sticking up around threads of jack with saddle removed
HD bolt on - Most heavy duty floor jacks, has    NO  lip      around threads of jack with saddle removed
Drop in - Older style floor jack, has 1.16" ˜ 1 3/16" diameter pin

You will need to remove the saddle on your floor jack to check which style you have. The styles are listed above. Our floor jack base plate will bolt right onto SD (standard duty) floor jacks, these are generally 2-3 ton jacks, under 2 ton jacks might not work with our Jack Adapter. The HD (heavy duty) style includes an extra machined step bushing that installs over the factory bolt and then works with our floor base plate. The HD style are generally 3-4 ton jacks and include a lot of name brand expensive jacks. The old style Drop in, we include a pin that you will press into our floor base plate. The old style is most jacks made 10 or so years ago. There are a couple other odd style floor jacks, so make sure yours fits into one of our categories.

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. The holes are actually designed to hold a strap to retain whatever you are working on.

Transmission jack base plate - Works with tall and floor style transmission jacks. 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.

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 floor 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. It's good to have a second jack handy for changing the height of the vehicle if necessary. Floor jacks work fine for axles, fuel tanks, doors and bumpers; but transmissions and transfer cases can be difficult with a floor 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 use under vehicle lifts. The jack adapter works 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. Once you get familiar to using the jack adapter and finding the balance point, it's 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.

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.

Better than sliced bread!
Customer service is fantastic, received the four point adapter and accessories in a couple days, already put it to use on a 9 inch axle, banjo axle, T5 transmission and a couple of doors. This adapter works GREAT on the floor jack and transmission jack and has saved me countless hours! My back is extremely happy to have this tool in the shop! Thanks again!!!
