For ULTIMATE safety, add one of our stabilizing plates under your bottle jack or Hi-Lift style jack! Performing lifting operations, especially when off-roading, can be tricky due to the jack sinking into natural ground when weight is applied. This not only decreases available stroke, but can make the jack highly unstable and turn a simple recovery into a life-or-death situation. Start by adding our Universal Bottle Jack Base to any bottle jack. With the included washer and tab assemblies, this base will accommodate bottle jacks of 6, 8, 12, or even 20-ton capacity. This alone makes the jack more stable and decreases ground loading, but snap into our Universal Base Plate System and watch it instantly transform into one of the safest and most versatile lifting tools on the market! The Universal Base Plate System is compatible with bottle jacks of virtually any size or with Hi-Lift style jacks of 40-inch and 60-inch sizes! With the interchangeable insert plates, changing from one style jack to another takes a matter of seconds; just pull back the plunger and release to lock it in tight. Additionally, the convenient handles on the Universal Base Plate make the unit easy to slide under the load or even used as a makeshift shovel before placing the equipment!
