I'm the OP of this thread and would like to give you guys an update on my QuickJack system.

It is still working great and I have it loaned out to a buddy so he can work on his vette. Now he is hooked on getting one.

Still loving my QJ!

TBatt, when you lift the Z do you also use Jack Stands as backup? Im gonna need to do work underneath and I guess im a wuss when it comes to safety..

I'll insert my 2 cents in on this. I trust the Quickjack far above jack stands. I never use stands other than the Quickjack.
It would be rather difficult to use both IMO.

I could not agree more! Jack stands are NOT needed. The car is very solid when up on the QJ. I've done exhaust and brake work and the car does not move one bit even if you are tugging on a breaker bar.

Another great advantage is getting the car higher up when working in the engine bay. While I was installing the super charger kit, I kept it up on the first level so that my back wasn't getting bent over. It helped a bunch and allowed me to work on the top and bottom of the car.

My 1977 Fiat Spider is a pain (literally) to work on because it sits so low to the ground. Lifting it up makes it far easier to work on. I feel perfectly safe with the car lifted and the engine running.

Sorry for asking a question that has probably already been answered, but does the quick jack lock into place once lifted? I assume it's not relying on the hydraulic pressure to hold it up during operation.

It has a locking bar on each lift and two "heights" where the bar locks out.

Well, when I first lifted the Z, on the first set of stops, I let the safety arms go over them, made sure that the release cams were in the up position so that it doesnt cause the bar to go over the stop. As I was lowering the QJ to engage the safety stops, one side popped over the safety stop, it literally popped, scared the crap out of me. Tried again, same thing. So as of now, if I need to use it on the lower setting, I just lower it so that the bars just touch the safety stops.

When its in the high position, its fine. But it still kinda makes me iffy, hence the jackstand backup. I had a friend in HS who was crushed working on his van a few weeks after graduating.

Dude F that noise, you need to contract the manufacturer. I put jackstands underneath as well, but I only have two SUV-sized ones so those go on the end that I'm working under.

Agreed, you need to contact QJ for a solution, this is unacceptable. I do not have this problem, nor should you or anyone with this jack.

Which model do you have, I have the 7000SLX

Update on my QuickJack, with the one safety arm popping off the stop. I contacted Support and they had me take a video of it. Upon closer inspection, the ramps werent moving evenly, so I re-bled both ramps.
Then as I was taking the video, turns out that the Cam on the offending ramp would "disengage" as it was going over the first safety stop - meaning, instead of going over the stop, it would go into the position where it will let the arm slide over the stop. Sometimes it "disengages" cleanly, and sometimes it would kind of snag, hence the POP when it does engage. Mean while, the other ramp safety mechanism works fine, as well as the higher position stop on both ramps.

Support told me that some cams are machined a bit differently, and I have one of those cams. Theyll be sending me a new cam and pin.

I have a video. if anyone is interested ill upload it. Its only about a 10 second video.

Has anyone else had an issue with the rubber blocks curling the outer and inner metal on the frame rail?
