Good price. Just be aware that this model, as with most cheap bottle jacks, will need to be standing up to work. These will not work when placed horizontally. So if you need one that works when in a horizontal position, this is not the one to get.

I recently used a pair of these to level the beams in my crawlspace under my house. I would be very cautious before using it on a car.

But it did not concern you to use this to lift a house?Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

These are fine for auto use, definitely the wrong tool to lift a house, you need a screw jack for that.

They worked just fine on the beams. The concern with bottle jacks vs. the more common automotive floor jacks is a matter of stability. Please stick to stuff you know about.

You got lucky, very lucky. The basic problem with hydraulic jacks is that they are only for lifting, not for holding. That's why it is NEVER safe to use them to lift a house or beam, because you need precise positioning and can't practically use a jack stand. That's why the ONLY safe option is a screw jack.

No issue, not sure what you are confused about. Used properly, these are more stable than a floor jack. Regardless, jack stands are required to support the vehicle.

Great advice, I hope you take it, since this "expert" (to quote others on this board) finds you don't understand how to safely and appropriately use jacks for vehicles or houses.
