The JackMate - Lift Jack Accessory is designed as a manual extrication & rescue tool. The JackMate replaces a standard lift jacks limited capacity top clamp with a multipurpose attachment and is rated to the full capacity of the jack as a clamp, winch, spreader or a base. The JackMate slides over either end of the jack bar and is attached with a quick-release pin. As a top clamp, the JackMate dramatically increases the jacks winching, clamping and crushing capabilities. As a replacement for the jack base, the JackMate ClawFoot is engineered to "bite" into boards or logs to help prevent the jack from sinking in mud, sand, ice and snow. Updated features for 2009 include a super-grip, diamond plate top, wire fence pulling slots (and bottle opener), an easier pin for attaching the JackMate to the jack, and quick release replacement pin for the jacks base.
A very well made, heavy piece of steel, designed with a specific purpose in-mind...to perform when needed!
I opted for the black silver-vein finish as it has texture with grip-ability and appears to have a higher durability factor over the standard red or black painted pieces. Besides, everybody else prefers the red paint color. Either way, an excellent tool for your extraction bag and for that "just in case" moment where you wish you had this tool for yourself or someone in need. Don't wait...get one today!
