Lifts in Seconds!
The one-time setup means practicality and portability become reality. Simply position the frames under the vehicle and push Up on the hand-held pendant control. In 30 seconds or less, the entire car will be 21 inches high off the ground and ready for tire swaps, oil changes and other maintenance.

Keep Frames Parallel
QuickJack is able to lift many vehicle types, but there are a few things to keep in mind no matter the size or weight of your car or truck. Namely, both of QuickJack's frame structures need to remain parallel to one another. The reason comes down to physics!
In order to remain low-profile and lightweight, QuickJack's collapsed form needs a way to hold the steel that extends as the frame rises. The best way to achieve this is with a folding parallelogram design, which gives the frames a radial shift of about 12 inches. To be less technical about it, QuickJack lifts up and back as you operate it. When both frames are kept parallel to each other, the vehicle will shift with the movement of the frames. As long as the rubber blocks contact your vehicle's OEM lifting points and you're using the QuickJack model rated for the weight of the vehicle, everything will work as intended.
If the frames are not parallel while they lift, problems can occur, and some vehicles have lifting points that are not parallel. An A-frame truck, for instance, whose back lifting points are significantly wider apart than the front lifting points, is probably not compatible with QuickJack. The reason is that the QuickJack frames will gradually pull apart from each other (if the frames are oriented with the radial shift moving back), and this could cause the vehicle to slip off the lifting blocks.
While it's not very common, if your vehicle has a frame that does not work with QuickJack, please contact us before making a purchase or attempting to lift a vehicle, and we will discuss other car lifts and lifting options for your vehicles.
How to Disconnect and Reconnect QuickJack's Hoses during Operation
Once your QuickJack frames have lifted a vehicle and the safety bar is secured on the mechanical locks, you have the option to detach the quick-connect fittings. Doing so will clear up a significant amount of workspace under the vehicle. With the mechanical locks engaged, the vehicle is no longer being held up by hydraulic pressure, so the vehicle can be suspended in the air indefinitely. To do this effectively, follow the two-step process below.
Step 1: Depressurize the hoses
This is a simple but important step. Once the hoses are depressurized, it's easier to re-attach the quick-connect fittings that are found on the long hoses and short leader hoses. To depressurize the hoses, simply hold the Down button on the pendant control for about five seconds. Watch the video below to see exactly what this looks like.
Step 2: Line up the quick-connect bead and push together
A small bead lines up with a cut-out section of the quick-connect fitting. Push the bead into the cutout, and the fittings will separate. Simply push them back together when you are ready to activate the hydraulics. If there isn't significant back-pressure in the hoses (meaning they were depressurized), the fittings will easily snap together with a strong, satisfying click.
If possible, we recommend leaving the power unit fittings attached to the long hydraulic lines. The reason: this is the area where there is the most potential for pressure buildup. If you depressurize the hoses, this won't be a problem. However, if you happen to disconnect one or both of these fittings and leave fluid in the lines (did not depressurize), it may be very difficult to re-connect the hoses. Storage will not be hindered if the hoses are left plugged into the power unit. It's easy and convenient in most cases to coil up the long hoses and leave them near the power unit during storage. No knots, no misplacing your lines.
