How to store long reach floor jack?

1.Always make sure to release all the pressure in the long reach floor jack cylinder before storing it. 

This will achieve a couple of things – 1) it will remove the stress on the system and 2) it will save you time for when you next need the long reach floor jack. Yes, long reach floor jacks are meant to handle a lot of pressure so the pressure doesn’t like a big problem, however, the jack will likely spend a lot of time in storage so that’s a long time of constant low pressure which has its effects.

2.Consider separating the handle from the long reach floor jack and storing the two parts separately. 

A lot of long reach floor jacks come with quick-release handles but some have bolts. If it’s possible and comfortable, releasing the handles from the jack can help reduce the overall storage space. The main special problem with storing long reach floor jack is that their L-shape is uncomfortable to fit in most places.

3.Try fitting the long reach floor jacks under a shelving unit with the handles kept in a vertical position via a bungee cord or something similar.

This can almost entirely negate the special problem as neither the jack itself nor its handle will really take any extra space in your garage.

4 Store the long reach floor jack in a place and a position where you’ll be able to access it safely and easily. 

Long reach floor jacks are heavy things with a lot of them easily going over 100 lbs. So, unless you want to give yourself a hernia when you take the jack or put it back into storage, it’s smart to place it in such a way that you can access it easily.


Still, even with a simple long reach floor jack you still need to make sure that it’s properly stored and maintained. If you’ve left it to roll freely in the back of your car, it can easily get damaged too. So, just find a way to secure it in a sturdy manner so that it stays in place in your car’s trunk at all times. Hangzhou Omega Machinery Co., Ltd is a professional manufacturer and exporter in Zhejiang China, the company is specialized in manufacturing/exporting all kinds of auto repair tools and vehicle maintenance equipment, such as kinds of bottle Jack, floor Jack, jack stand, porta power Jack, long reach floor jack, engine cranes, engine stands, shop press, spring compressors, oil extractors, sandblasters, benders and other related garage tools.
