Keep Your Workshop Safer with Jack Stand Products from PWG
You should never use a hydraulic floor jack without also using a jack stand. Jack stands help stabilise the vehicle and minimise the risk of it tumbling down as you change a tyre or take a look at the car’s underside. At Pro Workshop Gear (PWG), we can help you find everything you need to lift a vehicle safely and securely—from service jacks to jack stands and beyond.
The Importance of Using a Jack Stand
Why does using a jack stand matter so much? Here are a few reasons why you must pair every hydraulic or pneumatic jack purchases with a set of strong jack stands.
Floor jacks can fail: A floor jack is a terrific device to lift your car off the ground. What they aren’t meant for is supporting the weight of your vehicle for extended periods. A leak in the jack is all it takes for the system to fail. If you don’t have anything else supporting the vehicle, then it will come down—potentially a dangerous scenario.
Jack stands are meant for this purpose: While your trolley jack was never intended to support a four-tonne car, a jack stand is explicitly designed to hold weighty vehicles up for long periods at a time. Using jack stands, therefore, is a much safer way to get underneath a car than using only a floor jack.
Jack stands are affordable: Even the least expensive jack system costs considerably more than a set of jack stands. Rather than risk breaking your jack and having to replace it, use the jack only to lift the car and then stabilise or support it with the more affordable jack stands.
