Is a bottle jack safe for cars?
A bottle jack can safely lift a vehicle but it is not meant to hold a vehicle. Hydraulic bottle jacks are safe to use but use them with a jack stand.
Can I use a bottle jack on an SUV?
Bottle jacks have a small form factor and are easy to store. It also has a lifting capacity of up to 50 ton more than a scissor jack, but in most cases a 2 ton rated jack will suffice. The 2 ton (4000 lbs) jack is relatively inexpensive and can lift most sedans and SUVs, making it an ideal jack for home repairs.
Read all instructions before use
Never exceed the jack’s rated load capacity
