Easy to install. Holds in place until its removed. Made jacking the plane up to change bearing a breeze.
I made my own similar to this. I just wanted to recommend the use of a piece of leather between the jack and the gear leg. It slips less and protects the gear leg paint
The ends are not high enough, does not encompass the strut on a 172 with the wrap on it.
Product along with any bottle jack will not accomplish job. May seem inconsequential, but the product description should state 1. Additional C-Clamp for safety restraint required. 2. Bottle Jack head must be approximately but not to exceed 1 3/16 for swivel head to be secured. 3. Use caution while jacking for weight shift movement of remaining gear points. My bottle jack would not safely accommodate the swivel head due to size so I had to track down another jack. 5/8 Wrench & 11/16 Wrench or socket required for tool fitment. Additional Allen Wrench required for Swivel Head attachment. Instruction also suggests lining tool to prevent marring of Landing Gear. In all, caused delay getting all the proper pieces assembled.
Hand made tool did not work as described needs for C clamp extra, as never sit in it place Worth for $25 not more
