This jack stand Procedure is to apply to any use of jacks, jack stands, wooden blocking or other suitable alternative supporting mechanism used to support any elevated loads while being worked on by any member of the TRU community. It specifically includes the Automotive, Heavy Duty and Commercial Transport programs, as well as any other TRU related activity involving similar operations.
The stackable jack stands have a base defining a central opening, a support bar centrally disposed above the base, and a plurality of legs connecting the open base to the support bar. The support bar has a length less than the length of the central opening in the base. In this manner, one jack stand may be placed over another so that the jack stands nest together in order to facilitate storage and transportation.
