The jack post is used to help support the floor above the crawl space in a rustic cabin in the Adirondacks. After I figured out that reversing one of the two telescoping tubes gives additional length flexibility it was easy to install. It is probably loaded much below its rated capacity - it seems to be doing the job. I would buy it again.
Sturdy construction and good value. For my application, I would have liked the end plates to fasten to the jack in a positive fashion. The current design provides alignment but relies on the pressure to hold the jack in place.
The jack is easy to assemble and adjust, seemed very solid although I used it on a relatively small job (jacking up a play structure that probably weighs 1,000 pounds). The main issue is that they provide you a height range that it can lift which I assumed meant it covered all heights in between. But it has dead spots - for my purpose there was about a 7 inch dead spot that was falling right where I needed it. So I had to keep adjusting by adding different height boards on the uneven ground to make this work. It worked fine but if you don't have the flexibility to make those adjustments this product may not work for you. If I had a much heavier lift I would have been nervous stacking various boards under the jack.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Value, High Quality, Economical
I brought this 3 jack post for crawl space to support the beams. They are every easy to install and no complicate at all. Also, good price for these items than order directly are bit expensive than this.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Straight, Good Shape, Economical
Excellent Product! Three of these jackposts long with an 8' length of 4X6 structual lumber made easy work of correcting a kitchen floor that was settling unevenly due to newer, heavier appliances. The threaded fittings are extremely strong yet allow for fine-tuning of height adjustment. Simple to use, built to last, it's the perfect solution for what could become a serious condition.
The jack posts meet my requirements for the purpose I purchased them for, but when I went to install the last one of the three jacks I purchased I found that there were metal spurs in the threading of the bolt that screws into the post to adjust the jack. I could possibly have used a file to remove these spurs, but did not want to void any return warranty options by altering the product myself. Therefore I had to decide whether to return the product and not finish my project because I had to wait for a replacement, or make a trip to a local Home Depot store and see if they could resolve the issue. Luckily there was a tool rental section in the location closest to me and they filed off the spurs and the jack was then useable. My point being, I should not have had to make that trip to a store when I ordered online AND that if this particular manufacturer would have check it before it left his plant that would not have been necessary.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Good Size & Weight, Great Value, Economical
I had a problem with a wood deck that settled 6 inches off-level (downhill slope). The jackposts (3) were used to gradually bring the deck back to level. The adjustable bolts proved easy and precise to use to ease the deck back in position. For safety I attached the steel mounting plates to the overhead wood joists and slipped the jackposts in position (no wobbling / unsteady feeling). Jackposts are available for rent $12 each a day, it made no sense to rent when Home Depot could deliver them to my doorstep (and own them) for such a reasonable price.
The plate they supply for the floor attachment has just a little hump to keep the post from moving once it's loaded up. I understand that under 10k pounds of load it will not move, but it seems like it wouldn't take much of an earthquake to wiggle it out. I'm a diy maybe i just don't know.
construction could better if the base plates were welded to the lower post and the upper pivot plate were retained to the screw. this would aid one person assembly. The screw is beefy enough but the post end nut was a bit flimsy. All and all not a bad jack post.
My deck joists were slipping below the header 1" to 2" due to the weight of my hot tub. I used 3 of these to raise my deck back in place. I was using a hydrolic jack previously which was very unsafe as it kept slipping. I used these with a solid concrete block for a level foundation and slowly raised each of the three jack posts. I used (2) 2 x 4's under the joists. It worked very well and was very safe. I left them in place after I re-attached my joists since they were so inexpensive. The only way to do a project like this!
bottom portion is seperate and requires welding if wanting to have as part of the integral structure along with top piece, both of which have no other fitting options other then welding to make a solid formed product
I purchased 4 of these posts to adjust my outside deck. In the northeast posts will move etc. causing sags in your decking. These posts worked great to move sagging areas of a large deck. Very easy to use and can be adjusted for latter if needed.
