Bottle Jack Description
While most of the bottle jacks are relatively similar, they are available in different sizes so they can work with loads of varying weight. When you are requesting a quote from the KWIPPED supplier network for a bottle jack, it is important to know the weight of the object you need to lift so you can be sure you are working with the correct jack for the job. You speak with your KWIPPED supplier about a specific product questions. They will be able to help to make sure you are getting the right bottle jack.
Features of bottle jacks
There are very few features with a bottle jack. It features the base, which has the compact hydraulic piston at the top. The jack also has a handle, which will be used to “pump” the jack and raise the piston. With many of the pumps, the handle will also be used to open the release valve in order to lower the piston. Again, it is very important to read and adhere to the manufacturer instructions when it comes to using the jack.
How bottle jacks work
It is very important to place the jack on a flat and stable surface, such as a garage floor, when using. This will ensure that it doesn’t tip over. When placing the bottle jack beneath the object that you intend to lift, you have to be very careful when it comes to the placement of the piston. Improper placement could actually damage the item that you are trying to lift. You will use a pump handle to raise the jack and the object in question. Once raised, you will be able to work on or repair the item. Be sure to lower the jack slowly. It is important to learn how to use the jack properly to avoid damage to objects and your own body.
