Pennsy Part#: PN2450

Problem:

  • Pad must be placed between metal surface of Car Jacks or Jack Stands and metal frame of railcar
  • Currently carmen typically use plywood or other material available, which does not hold up
  • Plywood cracks and splinters after repeated use create safety concerns

 

Solution:

  • Pennsy has developed a pad using an advanced polymer which will not degrade

 

Results:

  • The Pennsy Jack Pad will not crack and splinter like wood, and withstand repeated jacking
  • Safety orange color so it can be identified and will not get lost
  • Has a hole so that it can be tied to the Car Jack or Jack Stand
  • Pennsy’s pad will not become brittle in the cold, and will maintain its shape after repeated use
  • Grooves in the part create a non-slip surface to prevent the car from slipping off the jack
