Elkhart, Ind.-based supplier Ultra-Fab Products Inc. has introduced the Ultra 30-inch scissor jacks, designed to add stability to travel trailers, fifth-wheels, and horse and cargo trailers.
According to a press release, the scissor jacks install easily by welding or bolting to the RV frame with 3-inch by 10-inch multi-hole mounting plates. The jacks are ruggedly constructed and feature a black powder coat finish that resists rust. A strong worm gear jacking mechanism eliminates slipping and the 5-inch by 9-inch footpads help combat sinking and tilting.
Once installed, the Ultra 30-inch scissor jacks are easy to operate. By using the hand crank that is included in the Twin-Pack, simply crank the jacks down until they are firm against the surface. And since they extend from 4 3/4 inches to 30-inches, the scissor jacks will offer stability even if the campsite is not level.
One of the unique features of Ultra-Fab’s scissor jacks is the use of a thread and nut at each end that work together when lowering or raising the unit. The company said the design allow RVers to move the jacks up or down 20% faster than other brands.
If RVers want to eliminate hand cracking, an Ultra Speed Socket scissor jack drill accessory is available. The 30-inch Scissor Jack also comes in a single pack but that does not include the hand crank.
The Ultra 30-inch scissor jacks are available through Arrow Distributing, Keystone Automotive, Stagparkway, NTP, Bell and Northern.
