Custom made PINCH WELD “no damage” unibody jacking adapter for flat top aluminum racing jack
This adapter can be used on the widely available Torin Brand T43004 flat top aluminum jack stands shown in the fourth photo. However, a small piece of 1/8 inch plywood or other shim (not included) may be needed to keep the bottom of the adapter from bending.
When I searched far and wide for an adapter that straddles the pinch weld jacking point for my expensive unibody cars, all I could find was one with a center stem made to fit into the center hole of a standard garage service floor jack. Two weeks of fruitless search revealed nothing that would suffice. I made prototypes of solid aluminum, wood and other materials, but none was light weight (to be carried in a car) and strong enough not to collapse in use. I knew the answer laid in the resign of the standard scissors jack. I tried standard 6063 “architectural extruded rectangular aluminum, but it was not strong enough and it bent. I searched far and wide and finally found expensive 6061-T6 1/8 wall extruded structural aluminum with “unique” rounded corners. The prototypes took hours to cut machine and mill.
It took another week and thought, as well as my 35 years in the aerospace service tool and production industry to economically make this adapter by hand machine under limited production and to do extensive testing to offer it at an economical price From my experience, I’ve known that it is very easy to make one unit for personal use, when cost is no object, but very difficult to efficiently make a foolproof product economically.
The following photos are self explanatory on how this adaptor works on a flat top racing jack as the one that I acquired from Harbor Freight over 8 years, ago;
The accessory “jacking adapter” weighs a under 5 ounces. It is fully finished with no burrs and rough edges, so it’s a pleasure to use It is , however, not for use with the vehicle to be support by plastic trim parts on some rocker panels.
The slot is approximately 3/8 inch wide and 7/8 inch deep. THE ADAPTER MAY BEND TO PROTECT THE CAR'S ROCKER PANEL. It is made this way and is NOT a flaw.
This sale is for the special NEW “custom made”, Pinch weld unibody jack adapter for your flat top aluminum racing jack, as shown. No racing jack or car frame or anything except the adapter is supplied The photos are for illustrative purposed only and only to show how this item fits and works when in use. The item is guaranteed to perform as described.<.font>
