im still thinking what would be better there some rubber or cut some gap in tube so it would lock on that side . something to do in front too it would lock there better. maybe put there biiger tube so jack tube would go like inside it .

could be with heavier car maybe more. i tried to lift front and side and car wasnt moving to sides or front at all. i thought its pretty stable. more so then any other jacks that are standard ones.

"Lift Mate" is very handy to lift on the wheel: https://hi-lift.com/accessories/lift-mate/

yes that i will need to. it can be made too. no need to buy it. i love DIY as much as i can stuff. i love to learn, try , experiment with new stuff.
as that maybe

could make it from straps or chain and different type hooks for my aluminum rim.
to make something similar to sold product should not be too hard too

and then something for pullling car. as i understood i need some amount of chain with hooks for pulling, at least mots people pull car with hi lift using chains and not straps. wonder why.
strap would be lighter to carry.is it not strong enough for that job


maybe just straps would work too


im putting pics for myself too to have more ideas whos using what and how and it would work for me and whats not work. i just need as light recovery gear as possible, best no chains at all and less metal things. hi lift is about 13kg so not that bad still.

and then i need some bigger base for it . again simple thing as to put board under it can be metal or wood. could be made more for ground to have better grip or just to flat surface


this one interesting. less meta,l less weight still strong




or that plastic one looks very light and not take much space


most used stuff with hi lift . just something to think of for myself


rubber pad would work best for street garage etc


just i think you don't need to attach stuff to it just to carry as separate layer and put it when you need. more practical. make separate layers from rubber then other as wood board maybe and maybe one from metal and have them with you.
