    How do you guys keep your hi-lift jacks from sliding? As in, the handle and spring-loaded part sliding down the actual jack? I've seen photos of some people who have brackets around them, so I'm wondering if there's something I can buy or make for it. I've recently mounted mine on my rear bumper and need something to lock it in place.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Too poor to list anything interesting.
    Can't complain either. Keeps the handle from moving around while I'm driving. Plus it's not a pain to slide off and on. Definitely a good add on for the jack.

    Sweet. Thanks, guys! I ordered Daystar's red one. Only $12, and I think it'll look nice considering the spring-loaded mechanism and handle are red but the jack is black.
