The RennStand by Safe Jack
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 18M-RS3 is rated for 3 tons. Use with jacks that are up to 12 inches wide (Most floor jacks). The Rennstand can extend to more than 16 inches.
Safe Jack products make common jacks uncommonly safe. Always use caution when jacking a vehicle. Use wheel chocks Follow vehicle manufacturers jacking instructions. We cannot cover all possible conditions and situations that may occur.

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 3 tons US or 2,722 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(9,000 lbs.) but please do not exceed the 6,000 lb. load rating for safety sake.
Q2: How low will it go?
A2: The Rennstand adds approximately 1.9 inches or 50 MM to the lowest setting of your jack including the jack pad. The lowest setting while on its legs is 11.5 inches or 292 MM.
Q3: How high will it go?
A3: The Rennstand will go to roughly 16.5 inches or 419 MM. 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 pinchweld pad, commonly used on many cars. 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 pad.
Bought two sets for my Tesla. Very sturdy, simple to setup and take down. Highly recommended.
The best jack stand on the market. No other stand even comes close. The RennStand is easy to use and the build quality is superb. The 4 stands are not cheap but worth every penny. I
would recommend the RennStand to anyone in the market looking for a solid well made stand.
It is well made the optional car fittings are well made. The shipping a little pricey.
I would recommend the stand. I will buy another one.
Very solid product. I feel safe using these more than any other jack I've used. They are expensive but are made here and quality. When you have 6k pounds above you are you sure you want to save a few bucks?
First off, I can't overstate how quickly these shipped. I ordered them mid afternoon and had them at my door by noon the next day. Granted I live just over 230 miles from the manufacturer, but it's still very impressive. Communication throughout the ordering and shipping process was great. I didn't even have to manually track the package since I got constant updates.
I have a profound and probably illogical distrust of traditional jack stands. That and Audi insisting the my vehicle must only be lifted at the jack points pretty much meant the only way to safely get all 4 corners off the ground was to use a lift. I considered a QuickJack but the models I looked at simply didn't have the lift point spread for the 72" between the front and rear jack points. The RennStand provides a perfect solution to this problem. Having the option to use the jack points to lift the car saved me the expense of installing a lift. These provide more than enough clearance under the car for all the jobs I'm comfortable doing myself. They also feel incredibly stable. I've tried to rock the car with all corners up and get very little movement. The optional vehicle specific adapters ensure a perfect fit for my jack points, further enhancing stability. I would recommend using a low profile jack with these. Mine is an older one that sits pretty tall, even in its lowest position. This creates an issue with clearance under the car when you add the 1.5 inches or so of the RennStand top support. I've been getting around this by driving one front tire slightly up a ramp. Once I have 1 corner up, the rest is a piece of cake. I will invest in a low profile jack soon.
