Extra Lift for My Car Jack.

About: Update 12 September 2017: A very special thanks to Sam Elder, a manager here at Instructables, who tracked down the cause of my lost publications and fixed the issue. Take a bow Sam!

Here is how I added extra height and stability to my car's scissors jack. I have always found it useful to have the jack lifted closer to the car chassis before operating the jack.

Step 1: Drilling Mounting Holes.

I made 4 holes onto the flange feet of the jack. These will be for wood screws later on.

Step 2: Attaching a Base Block.

I screwed on a piece of 2x4 wood block to be the new base for the jack.

Step 3: Additional Base Plate and Completion.

I put a larger wooden base for added stability to prevent the car rocking off the jack while lifted. Now the jack is much more useful and a little safer to use.
