Quick Lift Jack
The Rorty quick lift jack is a fixed height jack that will lift a quad, motorcycle, kart or lightweight race car by a fixed amount.
The real benefits are that it is light, has a very low closed height, and, if desired, the open height can be changed during fabrication to a figure of your choice by simply altering the lengths of the three links. The standard height, when closed, is 65mm (2 ½”), and 305mm (12”) when open.
The standard configuration has a large, square, diamond-plate lifting-platform, but any dedicated jacking-point fixtures or diff locators can quite easily be attached to the frame.
Three tough engineering-grade plastic rollers allow the jack necessary movement during the lifting operation. The rollers can be used for manoeuvring but should not be used for transporting heavy loads once lifted.
The end of the handle is angled upward, providing an easy grip without being too obtrusive.
The materials used are common items available from most hardware storesand steel yards.
Many workshops, garages and home builders will probably already have the majority of the requisite materials at hand. No trick parts need to be purchased.
