Product Description

This Vestil welded steel floor jack post (also called a basement floor jack) has a red oxide coating, a screw and turning bar, and dual-lock pins, and it extends telescopically for temporarily leveling, bracing, and stabilizing floor beams and joists during construction or repairs. The floor jack post can be adjusted and set to any height within the given range, allowing it to be used in applications with different height requirements. Welded steel provides strength. A turning bar and screw bolt are used to adjust the floor jack post's height, and two dual-lock pins secure the floor jack post at the desired height. The floor jack post has a diameter of 3". Both end plates are pre-drilled and measure 3-1/2 x 6 inches. The floor jack post should be installed on a concrete floor or concrete footing, with either end up.

Basement floor jacks, or jack posts, temporarily secure floor beams and joists in construction and industrial applications; they should not be used as permanent supports in new construction. Floor jack posts are typically made of steel for strength. They consist of an adjustable post and two end plates. The height of a floor jack post is adjusted using a screw and the post is held at the desired height with a series of pins. The bottom end plate must be installed on a concrete floor or concrete footing. Bolts must be used to secure each end plate to the structure the post is supporting, and a floor jack post's end plates may or may not have pre-drilled holes for these bolts.

Vestil Manufacturing Corp. manufactures materials handling equipment, including jib and gantry cranes, loading dock equipment, and storage solutions. The company, founded in 1968, is headquartered in Angola, IN.

These floor jacks were invaluable towards supporting floor beams to minimize floor deflection and noise. Used 4"x6"x10' lumber boards and three jacks per board to support the floor beams over a span of 60'. These floor jacks have a tough red coating to protect it and the screws are already greased. There are holes on the stands to secure the jack to the boards, or you can glue the stands to concrete blocks too. Each stand comes with a screw turning stick so I left them on the stand after the installation. Highly recommended and no complaints.

I used this to jack up my kitchen floor. These seem very sturdy and was relatively easy to install. The only issue I had, as many others, is that the bar they give you to raise the jack is way too short. Nothing a piece of rebar couldn't fix though. Great product for the money.

These are well painted heavy steel tubes. The height can be adjusted two way - using pre-drilled holes and steel inserts or using the bar that comes with the jack to turn the screw at the top. The holes adjust about five inches by aligning the holes up or down on the two main telescoping tubes and securing the length by sliding the think steel inserts into the holes. Fine adjustments are mad using the screw mechanism at the top by turning the screw with the bar that comes with the unit. The top and bottom plates are pre-drilled with hole to allow one to screw the base or top plates to whatever is being using to seat the jack. The top plate swivels. Both plates are about 3-1/2" by about 5". I have purchased 12 of these jacks of varying sizes. They have worked well for me. This smaller size works great for tight spaces. Be sure to take into consideration the height from your foundation or footing to the beam or connection point. Then apply this calculation to the range of the jack to make sure you order the correct size.

Once the base pad is leveled correctly, these were relatively easy to install and use. I used a longer rod to screw the jacks up which made it a lot easier to make the necessary adjustments. Big improvements were seen immedidately within the home. I will be adding more soon. Great product.

Post was easy to set up, and it works like it should. We've used it for 5 months now, and no problems.

I certainly would not go anywhere near the stated capacity but for smaller jobs this is a good value. If you need a serious floor jack you are going to have to pay. I finally found Ellis Mfg and that was the quality I was looking for. Not cheap but you will never doubt your equipment.

Jack seems to be well made and is made of heavier gauge metal than the other brands of jack posts. The description is incorrect. It states a 3" post diameter and it is only 2 1/4". This may only apply to the 12-16 inch range post since it is only one post and it does not have an outer post for the added height which would make the diameter larger.
