one, two, three, four! Rev up your engines! It’s time for the Scotty Kilmer Channel today I’m going to show you how you can
jack up your vehicle without doing any damage to it, now years ago jacking cars
was easy, cars had solid frames on the bottom that the bodies bolted to, you just
put the jack on the frame and jack it up in the air, but it’s been decades since
cars had real solid frames, they use what’s called unibody construction there is no
actual solid frame that you can jack it up on, if you go under the car and think
this is the frame and start jacking up it’ll just bend right in instead many
cars have these special little holes here that a jack is supposed to fit in
and jack it up, but guess what, a lot of times these jack saddles don’t fit on there
that well and they will either slip or they’ll Bend that part of the car, but
there’s a special tool you can get looks like a giant hockey puck, only it has a V
slice sliced in it so it fits right in there, you just place it on top of your
jack, then let you Jack it up in the air it slides right into the groove and then
the car is jacked up in the air, nice and safely it won’t slip and it won’t Bend
anything it’s a pretty nifty idea and if you want to check it out just go to
Amazon and type an extra large slotted Universal rubber jack pad frame rail
protector, there is right there, but let’s say you know the big jack like mine, but
you have a smaller jack, they make smaller ones or if you don’t like
spending $19.99 you can buy a hockey puck like I did that costs two dollars,
then cut a slot in it with a hacksaw now admittedly it’s not going to look as
neat but these hockey pucks are really hard and it’ll work perfectly fine, as
you can see, so the next time you want to jack your car up safely without damaging
anything, now you know what to do, you can buy one of these rubber frame rail
protectors or you can make one from a hockey puck, hockey stick not included,
and remember you’ve got any questions just visit the Scotty Kilmer channel

    A hocky puck with a sawed notch can split. You can make a better grove using a coarse rattail file, but it's better to spend a few bucks on a cast urethane puck or make a pinchweld jack adapter from unistrut.

    Knowing the proper place to jack up your car is very important. I replaced Tire on the side of the road and I put the jack in the wrong spot and the jack punched a hole through the bottom of the car.

    Where I live the official jack points are always rusted out and useless after a few years due to the winter salt. subframe mount points and suspension mount points are where you want to do this. No puck required and it works on any unibody vehicle. Even a severely rusted out car can be safely lifted this way – and obviously a brand new one too.

    Hockey pucks are also good for a modest body lift where you don't have to replace or extend lines and wiring or figure out what to do with a large gap between body and bumper. A cool weekend project.

    Awesome idea!!! I do not know if you have seen some of the aftermarket "scissor" type jacks that have electric motors in them, but if you have, you would probably not suggest buying one, as they tend to break down when needed to be used.

    Being Canadian we used to have these things lying around by the score. We'd use these things like you said and in a pinch, we'd use them for engine mounts, trans mounts, bump stops, and body mounts as well. They're only really good for older style body on frame cars and light trucks. Money was really very tight in those days.
    Thank you, Mr. Kilmer.

    Gah I hate the scissor jacks that came out in the early 80's. They expect the welded pinch points of the uniframe to be safe. Well once that area rusts its game over for the scissor jack being any use. I just recommend everyone to buy a $20 to $30 jack that you can just wheel under a good piece of the the actual frame or by the subframe and lift it from there. I do mine where the subframe bolts to the body which is very sturdy.

    That's called a "pinch weld" seam and yea, if you use a jack and bend it over, it will eventually rust. I have a 2012 Genesis 3.8L Sedan, and it has those same pinch weld seams. There ARE two jack points on each side of the car, front and rear, and that's where my tire dealer uses to raise the car.

    The car sits low to begin with, so a large floor jack just won't fit. I just did the brakes (front and rear) and I can tell you, if you are working on the car in your driveway, USE the spare tire jack (if you even have one) as it's made to fit. Then use the floor jack once you get it up in the air to stabilize it. I have a hockey puck as well (well, it a real puck, it's a round hard rubber packing thing I got off a piece of heavy equipment mounted on a wooden pallet) that works. Those damn pinch weld seams suck.

    My problem is the car doesn't provide a lifting point & support point. Granted if you don't get under the vehicle you're not in as much danger but all loads should be supported by solid metal stands instead of hydraulic jacks with $0.10 chinese o-rings.

    @Ira Friedman On minivans and most CUVs, at least up front there's the engine cradle you can jack up on without using a puck but on a lot of newer models, that'd mean removing the splash shield first… which of course means jacking it up first!

    My OEM scissor jack is basically flat on top with a couple of raised ribs to help keep it from sliding out, the pinch weld itself has a rounded out finish so a hockey puck would work prefect without cutting a groove. I suppose a slight groove could be helpful though.

    So I'm always confused about where on a pinch weld you're supposed to apply the load on. Is it on the area around the weld, thus the slotted pad allows it to do, or is it on the pinch weld itself?
