Electric Auto Jack Review

Lift Your Car With a Finger

by Chuck Arehart

Electric Auto Jack

Is cranking a jack to lift your car a hassle? If so, the Electric Auto Jack from AJ Prindle can make changing a tire easier. Additionally, the automated jack makes the task safer too, because it allows you to raise the automobile remotely. To use the tool, read the vehicle’s owner’s manual to find the appropriate jacking points. Position this electric scissors jack underneath the jacking point, plug the power cord into the car’s cigarette lighter and use the hard-wired remote control to activate the jack’s ten-amp motor. The jack, which has a one-ton capacity and a maximum extension of 14 inches, should only be used on small to mid-sized cars. Best of all, this device is easy to use and the motor does not get hot from strain.

Price: $79
