    The hydraulic jack uses the principle of PASCAL:

    The increase in pressure in a fluid in a closed environment is distributed evenly in all directions.

    By exerting a slight force on a small piston (that of the jack pump) this gives the larger piston (the jack cylinder) a greater force. By a valve system with flaps, we can then pump with the jack and lift the vehicle.

    Choosing the right type of jack for the job at hand is essential, not only for the safety of the mechanic, but also for the proper maintenance of the vehicle.

    Every new vehicle sold comes with a jack as a standard tool for changing a wheel. This jack, of the mechanical type, is intended for emergency use, such as changing a punctured wheel.

    This type of jack is not intended for frequent use.

    How to use a car jack?

    As you may have noticed, there is no one way to use a jack as there are many techniques to implement depending on what you are going to use it for.

    However, there may be general tips and protective measures to consider to make lifting your vehicle easy.

    • Visualize the lifting point of your vehicle. Place the jack directly under this point and proceed to climb.
    • Once the vehicle is raised, you must install a safety jack in addition to the jack.
