The RennStand by Safe Jack (Single unit)
Rennen means RACE in German. The patented Rennstand is revolutionary because it solves the problem of jacking and supporting in the right spot. It allows jacking and supporting using interchangeable jack pads designed for the vehicle. It’s easy, sets up in seconds and it is safer for the vehicle and the operator. It can be used with most floor/ trolley jacks. The first model (18M-RS2) is rated for 2 tons. Use with jacks that are up to 12 inches wide. (Most floor jacks) Rennstand can extend to more than 18 inches.
Safe Jack products make common jacks uncommonly safe. Always use caution when jacking a vehicle. Use wheel chocks Follow vehicle manufacturers jacking instructions.

Frequently Asked Questions
Thank you for inquiring about the Rennstand. We have been getting a lot of attention with the Rennstand and there have been a lot of the same questions asked. I am going to do my best to cover all of the most asked questions. If you have a question that is not answered here, please let us know and we will get back to you.
Q1: How much will the Rennstand support?
A1: We have rated the Rennstand for 2 tons US or 1814 KG. and each of the quick release pins holding it together are rated for 9000 lbs each. If your vehicle weighs 5000 lbs. the most you would support with one jack or jack stand is half of that since the vehicle is also supported by it’s tires or other jack stands that share the weight. A 5000 lb vehicle might put as much as 2500 lbs on a jack stand and that is only 62% of the stands rating. The more stands, the lower the loading on each stand because they are sharing the load. In addition, the stands are all tested in accordance with ASME standards to at least 150% of the rated load(6,000 lbs.) but please do not exceed the 4000 lb. load rating for safety sake.
Q2: How low will it go?
A2: The Rennstand adds approximately 1.9 inches or 50MM to the lowest setting of your jack including the jack pad. The lowest setting while on its legs is 11 inches or 280 MM.
Q3: How high will it go?
A3: The first version of the Rennstand will go to roughly 18 inches or 460MM. We have plans to produce other versions that will go higher for lifted vehicles.
Q4: Do you have a heavier duty unit?
A4: Currently we do not but a heavier 4 or 5 ton unit and even a 10 ton unit are planned.
Q5: Distribution? Do you have dealers in the UK, Australia, Canada, South America, etc?
A5: Currently we have one distributor in Australia (ProQuip). We are open to having distribution but currently all orders ship direct from our facilities in Washington State, USA.
Q6: What size floor jack will fit under the Rennstand?
A6: The jack can not be wider than the space between the legs. The Rennstand will accept floor jacks that are up to 12 inches or 305 MM wide. Luckily, that is wider than all the jacks we measured.
Q7: What vehicles does the Rennstand fit?
A7: That’s a tough one because there are so many different vehicles and variations from year to year. We will be adding jack pads to our product line as we are able to. We sell the standard Rennstand with a universal crown pad similar to the pad on you jack and we include the standard pinch weld pad used on many vehicles. We will have additional pads available soon for a variety of models. The next pads that will be made available are pads for the Porsche, Tesla S, most Audi, VW Gulf, Jetta, New Beetle, Passat, MINI, BMW and Corvette. These pads will be available for purchase soon. As soon as we feel the product is ready, we will put them up for sale on the web site and announce the launch on Face Book.
Q8: Fitment? How much room is required to place the stand?
A8: You will need at least 5.5 inches or 140 MM of clearance from the center of the jack point to any obstruction in order to safely place the Rennstand. You will need 2.1" plus the height of your jack to place the Rennstand under your vehicle.
Q9: How big are the included pads?A8: Here are some dimensions on the included pads.
What a novel IDEA for Holding a Vehicle while you are under it. Works like a charm, and hope that we don't get some Chinese Knockoffs in the future. What is your life worth (when considering price). This product is a quality product.
I've bought a pair of these, had them shipped from the U.S. to England as I couldn't find anything similar over here. I've only used one so far but they are of good quality and feel solid and safe in use. I've got the pinch weld pad for my Passat but I've made my own pad for use with my wife's BMW 1 series. I've used a total of 36mm of top quality plywood which sits into the plastic jacking block on her car and it all felt solid. I've also used some more plywood under one side of the Rennstand as my drive has a slight slope , just to make the stand level in use. I can recommend these stands, bit pricey especially factoring in shipping and import tax but hopefully won't have to purchase any more.
Solid construction, American made, held my BMW secure for hours while I worked on cleaning up the wheel hubs. BMW puck fit onto the flat pad. I added a small piece of rubberized material to hold the puck from sliding on the pad. Maybe I will rubberize the pads with liquid rubber.
i searched the web for all kinds of stands, and this stand made sense. when i received it,I found the stand very well made. it will last for ever. i do wish it were lower in price. but when you receive it, you can see why it is sold at that price.eventually, it will come down in price, but i wanted the convenience and safety now. thank you SAFE JACK.
