Welcome once again to Quick Tips.
I’m Max, I’m back, and I have a great tip for you this week.
Back when we did our very first video, which evolved into this Quick Tips series, we addressed
the most common mistake people make when installing QuickJack.
Everyday QuickJack portable car lift is improperly
Installed simply because the owner hasn't read the manual.
When first lifting, it's common for the frames to move unevenly.
That's simply the hydraulic fluid pressurizing
That’s the one.
The biggest part of stopping your frames from lifting unevenly is making sure the frames
are equally pressurized.
This means bleeding all the air out of them.
In our instruction manual, we provide one way to do this.
Simply use a hex key, sometimes called an Allen wrench, to let air out of the cylinder.
This works some of the time, but it might not be enough.
Just like with this bottle of water, if this cap is the cylinder valve, and the water inside
is hydraulic fluid, I can’t get all the air out because it’s blocked by fluid.
But, if I turn the bottle up, we see the air is free and can be easily released.
You can do this with QuickJack too.
All you need to do is lift the frame, so the valve faces up.
Be careful though.
You don’t want the frame slipping around on you while you do this.
Our friend Tim can show you exactly how it’s done.
And that’s exactly how it’s done.
Bleeding new cylinders goes a long way toward getting the frames equally pressurized.
And you know, QuickJack works pretty well under pressure.
