“World’s Safest Jack”
Gaither Tool Company’s new 20-ton air-over-hydraulic Moore-Safe Jack delivers superior performance, safety and utility. Screw-in “bolt” head design provides stability and improved center of gravity.
We do a lot of axle lifting for tire changes and rotations, brake service and axle related work. A safe jack is always important. Our stout floor jacks range from 1.5-ton to 4-ton ratings apiece. In most cases, quality floor jacks do a great job.
Floor jacks clutter space. An advantage with the Moore-Safe Jack is its stable lifting capacity without taking up excessive floor space. The Moore-Safe Jack is also portable and more compact than a bulky floor jack. This jack proves optimal for work like tire and wheel service in a production shop or alongside the road. For working beneath vehicles, we use quality weight rated ramps or jack stands.
The work space around the Moore-Safe Jack is open and uncluttered. This provides a much safer work environment. 20-ton lifting capacity is over five times the weight of the entire Jeep® XJ Cherokee 4×4 ‘s over the road weight of approximately 3,800 pounds. This vehicle’s weight includes a 9.5i Warn winch, heavy ARB front winch bumper, a Warn tire carrier rear bumper, a 6-inch long arm chassis lift, off-road accessories and oversized tires.
The Moore-Safe Jack can be operated with compressed air or as a hand pump jack. This increases the jack’s versatility, which includes portable use for remote roadside or back country work. The bolt heads can lift a flat beam axle, a tubular axle or an axle spring plate. In addition to motor vehicles, the jack will work well for common transport trailers or RV travel trailer tube axles. The bolt heads provide a sturdy, stable platform for quick, safe tire and wheel service.
Used within its capacity, the Moore-Safe Jack is a valuable service tool. Truckers and small shops like ours perform service work at the floor or ground level. This sturdy, well constructed jack quickly brings a vehicle to working height for changing and rotating big tires. “The World’s Safest Jack” is our portable jack pick!
Footnote: History of the Moore-Safe Jack
Gaither® Tool Company partnered with Jason Moore, the inventor of the Moore-Safe Jack, to bring this product to market. Gaither® saw the merits and advanced design of Jason Moore’s concept. Here is how the Moore-Safe Jack came to life:
|“The idea came to me when I was working on a super single trailer axle in the middle of winter on the side of the Freeway on I-80. It had been snowing that day, so it was cold, and I was dealing with snow and ice. The axle was extremely low to the ground, so I had to place a short jack under it to get it off the ground then place another jack to finish getting it to a proper working height where I could put a jack stand under the axle. After I placed the first jack under the axle and lifted it off the ground, I reached over to get the other jack, and then the first jack slipped grazing my cheek just below my left eye!|
Later that night, I sat down and did some research online, looking for a product that would help cradle the axle and stop a jack from ever slipping off the lifting surface. I couldn’t find anything that would solve the problem. Over the next few months, I made a few prototypes with different types of attachment designs and tried them on different types of lifting surfaces. After lots of testing and teaming up with Gaither, we finally came up with the Moore-Safe Jack, the safest bottle jack the world has ever seen.”

Jason Moore’s account is close to home—literally. 4WD Mechanix Magazine’s shop/office is just a mile from I-80 at the west end of the Great Basin near the Sierra Range. Moore’s Tire & Service is at Coalville, Utah, the east end of the Great Basin near the Wasatch Range. We each can relate to I-80 winter travel at the Far West…Thanks, Jason and Gaither® Tool Company, for bringing this jack concept to life!
Here, our Ram 3500 tire rotation gets a lift from the Gaither Tire Dolly. For 37″ diameter tire/wheel assemblies that weight 102 pounds apiece, this dolly eliminates heavy loads on your back. Tire service equipment is a Gaither® Tool Company niche. We purchased this Gaither Winntec tire dolly at Unique Truck Equipment online.
