The RennStand by Safe Jack
includes (1) RS3 rennstand and your choice of 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 jacks having a lift saddle of 3 inches in diameter or larger. 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.
Customer ReviewsWrite a review
The car I had is a ford ,I have to jack up the other
side in order for the safe Jack to fit into slot. Otherwise everything is easy.But cost is too expensive compare to other methods.
Very happy with my Rennstand purchase. It is a very well made and designed product. I recently rotated the tires on my Crosstrek with the model-specific Jack Pads and everything worked perfectly! The Safe Jack customer service team is outstanding - I had a terrible FedEx experience and Safe Jack even got a FedEx rep involved and was super responsive throughout.
As I taught my boys over the years don't ever jack a car up and then tell yourself "that's good enough".
Using these stands you can say with confidence "that's very good"
Very solid stands that's used at the vehicles designated jacking points is a plus
Overall, I like the concept of eliminating a separate spot to set up a jack stand. The materials are very solid and sturdy. However I marked down the rating one star because the combination of the jack stand top plus the BMW Jack Pad takes up too much space for me to fit the combo, along with my low-profile hydraulic jack under my BMW. The Jack Pad rectangle, which is made to fit into the hard jack point for the BMW, is about twice as high as it needs to be, which adds unnecessary height where space is at a premium under a low profile BMW. I have to pull my car up on 2.5" ramps (front and rear) on one side just to get the entire combination to fit under the car and into the jack point.
The rectangular jack pad is also shorter in length and width than the BMW jack receptacle permits and is therefore subject to sliding around within the receptacle. I recommend you create a more slim-line jack pad with a width and length that fit BMW's better. Anything you can do to make the combination of the Jack Stand and Pad height slimmer would be a huge improvement to this product. Having to purchase and use separate ramps, even with a low-profile hydraulic jack, is very inconvenient.
Only recommendation I have would be to provide a wider attachment to have more area on the pinch welds. The two inch wide area can put some fairly focal pressure on the pinch weld and may bend or mar it. Lined mine with rubber and it helped somewhat.
