Frequently Asked Questions
JackPoint JackStands are designed to provide increased safety against vehicles slipping off a conventional jack stand through use of the JackPoint JackStand on the vehicle's proper jacking location. Always use a JackPoint pad that is the proper fit for the vehicle. Using the wrong pad or using a JackPoint JackStand or any jack stand in the wrong place presents a serious risk that the vehicle will slip off the jack stand and fall.

Most racing style jacks and many outboard wheel jacks will work with JackPoint Jackstands. It is not necessary to buy a special jack. The JackPoint Store has two jacks from Omega that work with our stands, but you can use JackPoint Jackstands with your floor jack from Griot's, Sears, Torin, and many jacks sold by retail and online vendors like Tool King and Harbor Freight. See the illustrations under the Instructions page on this site and check to see if your jack is no more than 11 3/4" wide at the frontwheels or at the base handles; has a lift arm that is no more than 5 1/2" wide; and has a jack plate that is between 4" and 5" in diameter. These dimensions will allow easy clearance and operation. You should not use a jack with a jack plate smaller than 3 1/2" in diameter as it may allow the JackPoint pad to shift and tip on the plate while jacking. Do not use a jack that is damaged or that won't safely lift and hold your vehicle at a height of at least 14 inches.
The low profile JackPoint pad resting on a standard racing jack will require approximately 4 1/2" - 5" of ground clearance to the car's jacking location assuming the jack's minimum pick up height is 3 1/2". Using lower pick up jacks like the Omega 29025 or the Griot's floor jack will lower the needed ground clearance by about 1 inch. If your car is too low, it may be necessary to jack the car up on one jacking location without the pad in place and extend the suspension. Gently lower the car. The extended suspension should provide you the extra half inch or more of ground cleanance needed to put the JackPoint pad in place and lift the car. Race prepared cars may need to have the first corner lifted and have the tire lowered onto a short block. After the first JackPoint Jackstand is in place, the remaining corners will be high enough for most jacks.
