2 Bolt-On Swivel Trailer Jacks

I saw this on another trailer this past summer and thought it was a brilliant idea. No more dirty jack stands in the Boler plus it will free up a bit more storage space under the bed.

I waited for Princess Auto to put them on sale and today was the day.

$19.99 each (reg. $49.99)

Great idea, I've been wanting to mount jacks but the swivel part makes them so much easier to use.

You could swing them out for better protection from shopping carts on Walmart parking lots

I would add bungies to hold the cranks up.

Cool

Jayson,
Do you know what the equivalent U.S. company is? I want them. I can never get the already bolted on jacks on my UHaul bumper to go down. This would be perfect. Please let me know, before I start making phone calls around town.
Thanks,
Patti

Harbor Freight is the US equivalent of Princess Auto.

I believe the UHaul stabilizers are standard Atwoods. They are just held on with two bolts. Mine were bent and rusty and I took them off and tuned them up, but they are inexpensive to replace.

Do you know the maximum size member ( e.g. 4" x 4" ) that the clamping arrangement will clamp on to ????

Thanks ....... Peter
