3/1/22 - Discontinued product - This was our original 4 point jack adapter that has been replaced with the new version which is even more versatile than this one. We still have some parts for this version available.

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. Powder coated and Zinc plated steel. Made in Oregon, USA.

- Transmission Base Plate - fits low lift and tall transmission jacks
- Floor Base Plate - can fit most floor jacks: SD bolt on, HD bolt on, and Drop in Pin style

- 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, have quick release pins for easy setup, and provide solid load points
- Threaded bars adjust from 6-20” wide and have fine adjustments for stabilizing the load
- 800 lbs. capacity at maximum extension
- Made in Oregon, USA

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

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) option 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 Drop in option includes a pin that you press into our floor base plate. The Drop in style is most jacks that were made 10 or so years ago. There are a couple of 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 low lift and tall 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 your car with the jack adapter) and the jack adapter allows you to utilize your jack for working on lighter, but more awkward objects.  The jack adapter adds about 6 inches of height to your jack so tall jack stands can be useful. It's also 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 or even dangerous 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 tall for use under vehicle lifts. The jack adapter works better on a good transmission jack than 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 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!!!

Worth the money
This is a nice adapter that will assist to lower and raise a rear axle. I give it 4 stars. I have yet to use it on my transmission, but that job will come this winter. The only issue I had was the adapter can be a bit unsteady even if you level the rear axle well. Lifting my new axle into place was a bit more hazardous as the adapter nearly came out of the lift. Still, it did the job. I got the axle into a good spot to attach the rear leaf springs, I held the axle in place with blocks and finished raising it with my floor jack. I couldn't have done all this with just muscle. As to customer service, I called to make a change to my original order. Spot on! My change was implemented without any problem. 5 stars for customer support. Thank you
