Safe Jack could prevent thousands of injuries each year.

Posted by Richard Bogert on

Its’ easy to see the value of SAFE JACK!  Safe Jack is all about making jacking and supporting vehicles safer.

I saw a report  today from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that showed an estimated 4,822 persons injured in motor vehicle jack failures  and of those, 74% were due to the vehicle slipping or falling off the jack.   Of these, almost 2500 were moderate to serious.  There were 223 amputations and over 700 fractures.
