We now have round jack saddles for
our jack extension. We specifically designed these to work with Prothane
polyurethane jack pads, that's why we include them as well. The pads
hold on tight, but are still easy to remove for normal jack use.
The floor jack extension converts your
floor jack into a universal 1 1/2" pin. The saddle alone gives a 2 to 3" extension, it comes with 6" and 11" extensions that you can stack for a total of 16" extension. There are multiple pin
styles to work with different floor jacks. The extension tubes are
swaged from 1.5 x .120 DOM tube and have a pressed in stop collar.
Recommended limits – full jack rating w/ 6” ext. –75% of jack rating w/ 11” ext. – 50% of jack rating w/both stacked at 16” ext.
All styles come with:
-1 1/2" diameter conversion pin - 1018 steel
-6" & 11" DOM extension tube
-3" Round Saddle - laser cut, formed & welded - 1/4" A572
-Prothane poly jack pad - 3 1/4" O.D.
For up to 3 ton floor jacks
Jack Saddle Styles -
Bolt on - Fine Thread -Most common. Includes large washer for jacks with a lip sticking up when factory saddle is removed.
Bolt on - Coarse Thread -Used on Duralast, Torin and potentially other brand jacks
Cross Pin -Fits most 1½ ton jacks that use a cross pin to retain the saddle.Drop in pin -Fits older style jacks with 1.17" or 1 3/16" pin
For up to 3 ton floor jacks - The longer
extensions add leverage to your jack base, which will bend or break if
used improperly. The fail point in our destructive testing is the floor
jack base, where our 1 1/2" pin attaches. This bends your jack, then our
extension pin and tube with around 500-1000 lbs of side load, depending
on the jack and extension. Weld our 1 1/2" pin to your jack for
increased strength, a couple stitch welds is all it takes.
