Review of the Anderson Rapid Jack


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Anderson Rapid Jack. This is a very quick and easy solution for those emergency situations you might find yourself in when you've got a flat tire heading down the road. It measures 17 inches long, 6 inches wide and here at the end we're looking at 6 and 7/8 of an inch in height. Now they've made this 100% from recycled materials right here in the United States. It's going to offer us a 20,000-pound weight limit. As we said, the Rapid Jack is great for those emergency situations. We're going to have a rubber pad and our Jack.

As you can see here unfortunately we've got a simulated flat. We'll place our Rapid Jack on our pad right in front of our tire as you can see there. Now I'm going to roll forward and show you how it works. As you can see we've rolled up onto our Rapid Jack. It allows our flat tire to spin freely.

Now this is going to be perfect if we've got an impact. We can take our lug nuts right off there and get it changed. Product number 3605 is the Anderson Tuff Chock. Probably not a bad idea to slide that behind there just in case your trailer we're to shift on you. That's going to help hold it in place. Now you will want to keep in mind that if you do not have an impact to remove this, if you're going to be using the standard tire tool, you will want to lave this on the ground when you break those loose.

Once they're broke loose you can get it up in the air. You'll be able to remove that and put it back on safely. With the Rapid Jack in this position as you can see, this is going to do another purpose or serve another purpose. It acts as a great camper leveler. Now certainly with our wheels being so close, we wouldn't be able to put two on our tandem trailer so it's not going to work. For any single axle trailer, being it an enclosed trailer you might be camping in, a camper trailer, a pop-up, whatever the situation is there, it will work great as a leveler for that as well.

Now that we've covered what it's going to do for us here at the rear of the trailer, let's head up to the front and see what kind of applications it has there. Now whenever you get where you're going the Rapid Jack's going to serve as a nice plate block. You see that gives you a nice steady firm mounting surface there. It dissipates all that weight across the wider area. The rectangular slot that you see right here in the top is made for your wheels so it acts as a really nice firm wheel block. Again, it's going to dissipate all of that weight across the wider area and it's going to reduce the potential for sinking. This also going to help keep our wheel in position so it's not rolling around on us. They've even thought of the post style jacks by making a nice solid hole right there in the side. We'll position that under. Just allow it to come down. Just like the other applications this is going to dissipate that weight out. Before we go I got one more thing to show you. Last but not least, guys, the Anderson Rapid Jack also makes a wheel chock. Now, we're using it in conjunction with the part number we've told you before, the 3605. That's the Anderson Tuff Chock just to give us stability going both ways. Keep in mind that is sold separately. For tandem axle trailers the leveling devices that are available are called the Rapid Levelers. The part number on those is AM3604. Now that we've gone over all the features and all the benefits of the Anderson Rapid Jack, that will complete today's look. .


Questions and Comments about this Video


Brian
Seems to work great on concrete or blacktop but what about roadside conditions where your tire may be in stones or dirt? Is it safe for those conditions?

Reply from Les D.

I reached out to my contact at Andersen Hitches about your question and was told that that these do work in rock and/or dirt as long as the ground does not significantly compact beneath. The same problem you might have with any style jack.
