Scissor Jacks: The Ultimate FAQ
Anyone who has purchased a car with an included spare tire and emergency jack is likely familiar with a scissor jack — thanks to their efficient and lightweight construction, scissor jacks are one of the most produced jack styles in the world.
Unfortunately, not all automotive equipment is made with the same quality assurance and technical specifications as professional gear, meaning many of the “emergency scissor jacks” that come with vehicles are not safe, long-lasting, or easy to use.
At PASSCA, we knew that a low-cost option for an emergency jack was necessary, and we hated seeing all the flimsy trunk jacks ruining people’s days… so we developed our own line of scissor jacks using the same materials and care as the rest of our professional automotive equipment.
Let’s get started! We hope you are ready to learn about how to use a scissor jack, how to care for a scissor jack, and which style and model of scissor jack can meet all your needs for an excellent emergency or portable vehicle jack.
We add to this guide all the time, so please, send us your questions.
1. What Is a Scissor Jack?
A scissor jack is a tool used to lift heavy objects and help provide stabilization; they are often used for vehicles in the workshop or at home and can be used out on the road in case of emergencies.
Although most scissor jacks are used to replace tires on vehicles, you can also use them on trailers to help provide stabilization while camping or to help set up work trailers on project sites.
The main reason scissor jacks are so popular is that they are so lightweight and convenient to use; scissor jacks are also very reliable and practical.
There are several types of scissor jacks on the market, and they can vary in dimensions or range, such as the mini scissor jack, wide scissor jack, the scissor jack car lift, and the electric scissor jack.
PASSCA offers two different main categories of scissor jacks with several different model specifications: manual scissor jacks and hydraulic scissor jacks.
2. How to Use a Scissor Jack?
The scissor jack comprises four sets of lower arms and four sets of upper arms connected to a threaded rod; when the threaded rod is tightened, it causes the arms to open up, like a pair of scissors, and create lift.
The threaded rod is usually tightened by attaching a crank handle to the loop that is connected to the end of the rod and by turning the handle clockwise or can be loosened by turning it counterclockwise— it is possible to tighten the rod by hand with some models for minor adjustments as well.
The hydraulic scissor jack operates mostly the same but doesn`t have a threaded rod running through the middle — it relies on liquid being pushed from one area of the jack to raise or lower the arms; the hydraulic scissor jack uses a pumping motion rather than the manual scissor jack`s turning motion.
How Do You Jack Up a Car With Scissor Jacks?
Before using the scissor jack, it is essential to make sure your car is on a flat surface and is not on an uneven street or a slope.
Put on your parking brake to prevent the car from rocking, and it is highly recommended to chock your tires as well.
Now that your car is ready, here is how to operate your scissor jack:
Look under your car for the pinch weld and place the scissor jack pad under its lift point.
Attach the handle to the threaded rod and begin turning the handle clockwise to lift your side of the car.
If you are using jack stands, you can place them under the pinch weld once the car is lifted high enough and turn the handle counterclockwise until the car is resting on the jack stands.
Once you are ready to lower the car, you can turn the handle counterclockwise to lower it.
If you are using jack stands, you will need to raise the car again following step 2, remove the jack stands, and then follow step 4.
4. What Are the Types of Scissor Jacks?
Manual Scissor Jacks:
Manual scissor jacks have a smaller base than the hydraulic scissor jack, which makes them very portable and easy to use in places with smaller work spaces; because the jack is so small, it is convenient to keep it in the trunk of your car or together with your spare tire.
The manual scissor jack also has a very simple design, so it’s much more lightweight and easy to understand how it works— this is great because if you are in an emergency, you can quickly pull it out and get it set up.
The manual scissor jack’s threading rod can also be turned by using a drill or wrench in place of the cranking lever, which can be very useful when you are in a hurry.
Hydraulic Scissor Jacks:
The hydraulic scissor jack is very quick and easy to use; the pumping motion of the lever requires less energy to handle, creates lift much more quickly, and is very reliable.
The other big benefit of the hydraulic scissor jack is that you won’t need to worry about rust slowing it down or causing it to jam while you are using it.
What Are the Features of a Scissor Jack?
Portable; The scissor jack is very lightweight and easy to carry around or transport in your car; if you are working in a garage or workshop, it’s effortless to transport them around for long distances or move up and down stairs without getting tired.
Affordable; Scissor jacks are also very reasonable compared to other tools which makes it great if you need to buy multiple jacks for larger projects or if you are running a workshop.
Compact; Because the scissor jack lightweight model has a simple design, it is very compact and can be stored easily with other jacks; most people prefer to keep the jack in the trunk of their car, and because it’s so small, you can sometimes fit them inside your spare tire to save space or fit them under a seat in a scissor jack bag.
What Are the Applications of a Scissor Jack?
Most of the time, scissor jacks are used to change or rotate tires and even perform oil changes; although jacks are mostly talked about when servicing cars, they can also be used to service motorcycles by placing the jack under the frame and lifting it.
Scissor jacks are also used to provide stabilization for trailers for maintenance or for camping; several jacks can be placed under the trailer to prevent it from rocking back and forth while people are moving around, or the scissor jack can be used to set jack stands for a more long term solution— scissor jack blocks are also a great addition to help with stabilization.
How Much Can a Scissor Jack Lift?
Scissor jacks on the market have an average lift capacity of 1 to 1.5 tons; Almost all of PASSCA’s models lift within the average range, but two models have a higher lift capacity than the average.
PASSCA has three 85mm manual scissor jacks that can lift .75, 1, and 1.5 tons worth of weight and has a 105mm model that can lift up to 2 tons.
PASSCA’s two hydraulic scissor jacks can lift either up to 1 ton with the 140mm model or 2 tons with the 145mm model.
Are Scissor Jacks Safe to Use?
Scissor jacks are safe to use if handled properly and with the weight capacity specified by the manufacturer; you should never use a scissor jack for a weight that exceeds the model`s capacity.
If you are planning to use the scissor jack outside of the garage/workshop, you should always make sure that your car is parked on an even surface to better stabilize the vehicle; the vehicles’ parking brake should be in place, the wheels should be straight, and to increase safety, you should chock the tires to prevent the vehicle from rocking back and forth while you are changing tires.
While using a jack stand, make sure that they are securely in place when you are lowering the car and removing the scissor jack to prevent the stand jacks from slipping out from underneath the car and possibly causing injury.
How to Lubricate a Scissor Jack?
When lubricating with your scissor jack grease, you will want to make sure to apply lubricant to the threaded screw in the middle of the jack; you will want to make sure there is enough lubricant on the area where the rod connects with the lower and upper arms.
It’s also important to lubricate the screws that connect the lower and upper arms to each other, the screws that are connected to the pad at the top, and the screws that are connected to the scissor jack`s base plate— it isn’t necessary to remove any of the scissor jack’s bolts while you are lubricating it.
How Strong Does My Scissor Jack Need to Be for My Workshop?
All of the manual and hydraulic scissor jacks that can be found in the PASSCA catalog can handle a variety of different capacities, and you will have no trouble finding a jack that will lift most cars, motorcycles, and campers.
If you are working with larger vehicles, it would be recommended to use the models with higher weight capacities that PASSCA offers in either the manual or hydraulic category.
If you have any questions about if a specific scissor jack`s capacity will meet your work project, please contact a PASSCA customer service representative for more details.
What Are the Parts of a Scissor Jack?
Starting at the top of the scissor jack is the saddle; this is where the vehicle will rest while you are lifting, lowering, or changing your tires.
There are four pieces of metal that are attached to the saddle—these are called the upper arms; the lower four pieces of metal that are attached to the upper arms are called the lower arms.
The lower arms are connected to the scissor jack base plate which is used for stabilization.
Running through the middle of the scissor jack is the threaded screw which is used to lift and lower the other scissor jack components; the tool that is included with the scissor jack is the handle and is used to rotate the screw.
The hydraulic scissor jack has most of the same parts as a manual scissor jack but doesn’t have a threaded rod; instead, the hydraulic jack is outfitted with a pump that transfers liquid through the jack.
Do You Need Jack Stands With a Scissor Jack?
It isn`t required to use a jack stand with a scissor jack, but they can be very useful to help stabilize the vehicle; if you are just using the jack to quickly change a tire on the side of the road or in your garage, your scissor jack alone will be perfect for the job.
If you are staying in or storing a trailer for a long period of time or if you are going to have a vehicle lifted for a while, it is highly recommended to use a scissor jack stand in place of your scissor jack; scissor jacks aren’t really meant to hold weight for long periods of time, but if you do intend to, it would be better to use a scissor jack stabilizer.
What Materials Are Used to Make a Scissor Jack?
All of the scissor jacks offered by PASSCA are made of steel and are incredibly durable, and they are coated with our high-grade corrosion-resistant powder coating.
All PASSCA products are tested to the safety specifications and production quality standards of the CE and ASME, meaning they are safe, certified and near-universally approved.
You will not have to worry about rust or corrosion with one of our scissor jacks, which can give you peace of mind for whenever an emergency roadside tire change tries to set you back — your scissor jack will be ready to go when you need it.
What Size Scissor Jack Do I Need for My Car?
If you are buying a scissor jack for a smaller car, you can buy a smaller jack that fits your required weight capacity; buying a smaller scissor jack will allow you to more easily store the jack in your car and get it out if you are in an emergency.
For heavier cars, it’s recommended to buy a bigger jack to handle your required weight capacity; it is always important to make sure you are bringing the right jack for the right weight and with the knowledge in this FAQ Guide, you are sure to find the best scissor jack for your needs.
All the specifications for our scissor jacks can be found in the PASSCA Catalog, and if you have any questions, contact PASSCA Tools for any help with your equipment needs.
What Weight Scissor Jack Do I Need?
Choosing the right weight of the scissor jack all depends on the weight of the vehicle you are operating it with.
For smaller cars or motorcycles, you can generally use a scissor jack that has a lower weight capacity and is more easy to transport around; if you are using a scissor jack for larger vehicles or trailers, you should choose a jack that can handle that higher weight capacity.
Thankfully, PASSCA offers a variety of scissor jacks with different weight capacities for you to choose from and provides jacks that can handle weight loads that many other jacks on the market cannot.
For help choosing the perfect manual or hydraulic scissor jack for you, contact a customer support representative from PASSCA Tools.
What Should Be Considered Before Buying a Scissor Jack?
Choosing the best scissor jack for you involves checking your vehicle’s weight and ground clearance to make sure the model of jack you get can handle the load and fit underneath — manual scissor jacks are lighter and can fit in most vehicle storage spaces, but take a look at our manual scissor jack guide for more information.
If you are looking for a heavy duty scissor jack for repetitive use, perhaps for a professional automotive garage, you should consider one with the power and ease of a hydraulic system — check out our FAQ guide on hydraulic scissor jacks to learn more.
