Looking for a jack that can double as a jack stand once you’ve got your vehicle in the air?
Powerbuilt’s 640912 All-In-One is an innovative bottle jack that doubles as a jack stand once you’ve got the load jacked to the height you desire.
At that point, you can install a locking bar to seat the jack in place at that height and use it as a stand. This makes it a safer option for changing tires or working with only one wheel off the ground at a time.
Traditional floor jacks and bottle jacks are less safe because the chance that they may fail is higher than a jack stand. Still, you’ll need a pair of stands to safely get under a vehicle.
This is a great addition to any DIY mechanic’s toolkit, especially as an emergency jack for changing tires or working on vehicle brakes one wheel at a time. For jobs that require you to get under a vehicle, though, you’ll still need a pair of jack stands to stay safe.
The Powerbuilt All-in-One certainly will make a good back up jack, but it won’t be able to hold up one side of a vehicle by itself.
