Same thing but I used a garage door railing so the jack can rest on



Got a write-up and some more pics on my flickr account.

Not sure that this is gonna help at all, and now you got two jacks to worry about. I usually just have one person "man the jack" If someone who knows the hi-lift keeps tabs on it you'll be fine. Make sure it's on a stable surface, make sure it's not leaning, and keep a tight grip on the handle which should be locked up out of the way as soon as you stop lifting/lowering. The handle is what can be scary. You don't expect it to do anything. If the jack is leaning you "expect" it may fall so you fix that. The handle you think is your friend until it rips away from your hands and takes a swing at your face! Just exercise caution and don't leave it unattended.

Put the nut on, drill a hole through the threads and back the nut off to clean the threads. You can slip a lock on then.

A guy I know got hit in the face by a High-Lift handle. the handle got away from him and smacked him in the cheek, The handle inbedded itself into his face almost flush. He shattered his cheekbone and almost lost an eye. Needless to say, he spent a long time in the hospital and went through alot of rehab. He's ok now....but doesn't go near a high-Lift any more! Whenever I use mine, I spray lube it real well b4 I try to jack anything up, especially the two pins that tend to get stuck.
