Using your Hi-Lift Jack - Raising a Stationary Load


1. Securely chock and stabilize the Jeep to prevent it from rolling or shifting as you lift it.

2. Place the Hi-Lift Jack base plate securely on a firm, level, and dry surface with the steel standard bar pointing straight up.

3. Lift the reversing latch until it locks in the up position.

4. Pull the Hi-Lift handle away from the steel standard bar, releasing the handle clip spring.

5. Grasp the handle or the handle socket and raise the lifting mechanism until the large runner is completely and securely under the load.

6. Grasp the handle firmly with both hands. Carefully pump the Hi-Lift handle up and down to raise the load. Do not use an extension on the handle. The load will be raised on each down stroke of the handle. Watch the load and the Hi-Lift jack carefully. Stop lifting if either one starts to move. Do not continue until it is safe to do so. When safe, stabilize and block the load.

7. When the load is raised to the desired height, place the HiLift Jack handle in the upright position clipped to the steel standard bar.

8. Block the load securely.

9. Lower the load onto the blocks

10. Remove the Hi-Lift jack from the stabilized load



Maintaining Your Hi-Lift Jack


Hi-Lift Jack Action

If you use and maintain your Hi-Lift jack properly, it will give you many years of service. Follow the mainte nance instructions carefully to keep your jack in good working condition. NEVER PERFORM MAINTENANCE ON THE JACK WHILE IT IS UNDER LOAD.


Cleaning: If the moving parts of the jack or the standard bar are clogged, use air pressure, water pressure, or a stiff brush to clean. Use a non-flammable cleaning solvent or another good de-greaser to clean the jack. Remove any existing rust, preferably with a penetrating lubricant.


Binding : If the climbing pins start to bind in the holes of the standard bar the jack will not operate properly and safely. Rusty climbing pins, dirt, or worn bar can be causes of binding.


Clean and lubricate the Hi-Lift lifting mechanism. Test the Hi-Lift Jack by lifting it up without a load. If the binding continues, Call us at 1-800-257-4294 or send the Jack to the Hi-Lift Factory Service for repair. If the Hi-Lift Jack binds while under a load, use a jack with equal or larger load capacity to lower the load safely to the ground.


Storing the Jack

  • 1. Place the handle in the upright clipped position against the steel standard bar.
  • 2. Raise the reversing latch until it locks in the up position.
  • 3. Store in the upright clipped position in a dry location, preferably indoors.

Hi-Lift ® Jack Company warrants the Hi-Lift ® jack for 12 months from the date of purchase, only to the original owner, against defective materials and workmanship. The full Hi-Lift Guide can be viewed Here
