Looking for feedback from the forum on what type of material/creative idea you have on your floor jack lifting disc to prevent marring on the vehicle underbody components. I have an old Hein-Werner jack with no protective insert on the lifting point disc.

Picked it up from an old Hot Rodder who would be around 80 now. You may owe his family some royalties ;-).

Simple. I put an old car on it that is already crusty. Done


Never, ever argue with an IDIOT. They will drag you to their level and then beat you with their years of experience

Thanks for this i love it! Also guys, would it be difficult/cost effective to maybe find out if friends or family has a 3d printer and make one? Just a thought....

My cars aren't restored so any marks from the floor jack is already done. But when I'm lifting something tthat does need extra care I use a strip of rubber like a chunk of tool box liner.

I use this style. Works great and won't fall off the jack if its the right diameter.

You'd have to ask them.

I don't worry much about under the car because it's already scuffed up from years of jack stands and jacks prior to me getting it. I did zip tie a pool noodle to the handle to keep that from bumping on the paint/trim when jacking up the car.

I tried one that you can get through NAPA (black one in the pics below). It has that awful Chinese rubber smell and cracked after several uses. Years ago I bought the orange ring off an eBay seller. It is incredibly tough and works great, I just wish I could find another like it that is a bit larger.
