Re: Hi-Lift Jack Mount/Instructions

Well, according to...

3/8" high-test has a safe working load of 5400 pounds and is $2.65 USD (

3/8 high test, System-7 is 6600 pounds...

Both are "Safe Working Load Limit" which has a 4-1 safety factor built in. I've got the 3/8 System 7 and a JackMate (which is absolutely wonderful) and I'll blow out the pins in the jack before any chain goes...

You can trust me with your life, your safety, and your property, but not too many nights in the same room with you.
