Review of the Buyers Products A-Frame Jack with Support Foot


Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at, and show you how to install, the Buyer's A-Frame Trailer Jack with Support Foot. This is a 2000-pound jack, offering 15 inches of travel. The part number is 3-3-7-0-0-9-1-2-6-0. Now, this A-frame coupler jack is going to offer a 2000-pound weight rating. That's going to be the maximum lifting force the jack is going to offer for us. Lighter enclosed trailers, smaller utility trailers, things like that, that's typically where you're going to see this at.

If you're in a camper situation, where you've got more weight, and things like that, generally, you're going to see something with a little bit higher weight rating for those applications.Now, overall, the jack offers really good quality. It feels really nice. The powder-coat finish on it, the black that you can see here, seems thicker than what we see on some other jacks out there on the market. If we look at the inner-tube section, here, we'll see that, that's got that matte white zinc finish to it. It's going to resist corrosion, and it feels nicer, and it feels a little bit thicker, again, than what we see on other offerings.

The foot plate, itself, measures four and one-eighth inches in width, and it's going to be able five and three-quarters of an inch in length. These are nice because, instead of just this tube pressing down on the ground, we're able to spread that energy out over a greater area, so in gravel, sand, dirt, things like that, we won't have to worry about this tube sinking down into the ground.Now, we're going to take just a second. We've got our jack lifted all the way up. We've got the tongue raised all the way up. We're going to measure the bracket height for you.

That's going to be the measurement, right here, to the top of our coupler. It looks like, with the jack fully extended, it's right about 25 inches. Here's our jack in the lowest position. Look here, that's going to come in right at about 10 inches to the top of that bracket, so that's going to give us that 15 inches of travel that we expect.Now, this is a top-wind jack design, that's pretty clear. You see, we need that area above the jack to be able to rotate our handle.

Just as an idea for a couple of measurements, from our bracket to the very top of the handle is going to be about 17 and a half inches. Then from the center to the outermost edge of our handle, it's about six and a half. Now, the advantage you'll have with the top-wind jack, over a side-wind jack, is that we don't have additional gears. Our handle is connected directly to our screw. That's going to run right down into the plate and allows us to raise and lower. With a side-wind handle, you get a gear on the side that rotates this way, and a gear on the bottom that rotates this way. That energy has to go through those two gears, so it just has more parts that eventually wear.You see, the handle is going to be pretty typical of what we see with top-wind jacks. It's got the heavy-duty black plastic there. We can grab a hold of, seemed there in the middle. Overall, it's got a good shape. I like that it's got that little bit of a taper, where it gets a little bit wider in the middle. It just allows you to get a little bit better purchase and you don't have to worry about your hand slipping off. Something pretty common with a top-wind style jack, such as this, is the ability to store the handle over. It's got a little click there, a little detent. You see, it gives a little resistance. You want to snap down and hold that in position. It's just going to save you a little bit of room around the top when it's not in use.Now, to begin our installation. Of course, you need to remove the odd jack from your trailer. Hang onto your hardware though. The jack is not going to come with any hardware and that's pretty typical for most jacks you'll buy. If you don't have hardware, if you need to replace it, whatever the case may be, you just want to use a minimum of a three-eighths inch diameter bolt. You want it to be a grade five rated bolt. That will give you the strength that you're going to need. Now, the jack is going to go down through our coupler. One thing to keep in mind, the outer diameter of this tube is two and a quarter inches. You need to ensure that your hole is that large to allow it to go down into place. The flat portion of this flange, generally, you want that pointing forward.We'll begin to thread our bolts in. In some instances with your coupler, it maybe a situation where you have to put nuts on the bottom. For our bolts, we're using a flat washer, a lock washer, and a bolt and the coupler is threaded. If yours isn't, be sure you have either a locking nut, a nylon lock nut, or a lock washer on the nut side, if you're using that. Now, with those started, we'll see them snug down. Then we want to torque them. Now, depending on the size hardware you use, that will change, of course, your torque specs. But, generally, with a three-eighths inch, grade five bolt, we want these to be somewhere between 20 and 28 foot-pounds.With those torqued, we can get our foot plate installed at this point. Just going to use a pin and a clip. It sits forward and back, and I like that orientation. The round one, you got to spin it to determine where that hole is and how to get it lined up. With this being a rectangle, we just know we want that facing forward. We'll slide that up and on. Then we can slide through our pin. Now, something I do like about this. With that hole already pre-drilled in that inner tube, not only can we use the foot plate, like this, but we could also attach a caster wheel. When using a caster wheel, something I really appreciate about this jack, you can see this groove. That keeps that inner tube from spinning, unlike with marine jacks where you have to place your foot on it to keep that wheel straight. This is going to lower it straight down and raise it straight up each time for you.Now, with our foot plate on, we'll just lower down the jack and let it support the weight of our trailer. We can get rid of our jack stands. That's going to complete our look at the Buyer's A-Frame Trailer Jack with Support Foot, part number 3-3-7-0-0-9-1-2-6-0.
