Omega Hydraulic Bottle Jacks are designed to lift, not support, rated capacity loads consisting of one end of a vehicle. Immediately after lifting, the load must be supported by a pair of appropriately rated jack stands. Never use hydraulic jack as a stand alone device. After lifting, immediately support the lifted load
Keep the jack clean and well lubricated to prevent foreign matter from entering the system. If the jack has been exposed to rain, snow, sand, or grit, it must be cleaned before it is used. 1. When the jack is not in use, keep the piston and pump rods fully retracted. Store the jack on its base and in a well
