The RennStand by Safe Jack
Each RS3 includes an 18M-P04 universal pinchweld pad
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. The operator must understand that common sense and caution are factors, which cannot be built into this product, but must be supplied by the operator.

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 42% 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.
Simple like many great inventions but solves the problem of where to put a jack stand when your trolley jack is using the only available safe jacking point.
It worked perfectly on my 1.8 ton Kia Stinger although a lower version would be even better as I had to drive the car onto a bit of 18mm ply to get enough height to insert the jack and top bar, then jack the car up much higher than I needed to insert the legs. It will be a much quicker job next time.Once fitted it was stable and rock solid.
I cut a piece of hard rubber from a jack stand pad and inserted it into the slot in the seam weld adaptor to avoid metal on metal contact. Perhaps an improvement that could be incorporated in the future?
It is expensive, especially in the UK with import taxes but worth it in my view to reduce the risk of damage to the car and myself.
The online ordering process was a breeze and the stands were delivered very quickly. I ordered two RennStands along with the BMW adapter and carry bag. The stands fit into the bag well but I wish the adapters were a little wider and longer. They do not exactly fit my 2020 X5 but will work. I'd highly recommend these stands. Very easy to set up and use!
I have a 2016 Camaro that I'm having the wheels chromed and needed a way to get store the car without the wheels. Using 2 floor jacks, I was easily and safety get the whole car lifted to remove all the wheels. The only problem I had using the Safe Jack was the wheel base on my floor jack did fit between the legs of the Safe Jack, but just barely. The other issue I have was that I was forced to buy the larger pinch weld adapters, I was not allowed to switch them out like I read from other reviews. For as much as these thing cost you would think you could just get the appropriate adapter without spending more money.
I have 2 suggestions for improvements
1. Although the stands appear to be very stable, I wanted to bolt them down since I was storing my car on four stands. Rather than having a bunch of random decorative slots cut in the feet of the stands, make them usable slots. I had to make brackets that when across the feet so I could bolt them to the ground.
2. The website has a place where you can put in the make and model of the car you are using the jacks with so you know which adapter you need. The list of vehicles is next to nothing, which makes this function pretty much useless. Then once you figure out which adapter you need you should be able to order the jacks with that appropriate adapter.
Using this device provides the safest way to lift a car and place it on a jack stand. I wish I thought of it, it's quite ingenious.
