There are plenty of non-adjustable jack pads on the market, but the problem is that you'll never know where on the gear the pad will slip onto.

Imagine my surprise when I bought a non-adjustable jack for my 150 and 172 and it didn't fit EITHER of them. Well, it did, but right where my foot step is located (on both planes) rendering the product useless. Worse, the taper of the product wasn't correct, so even if it DID slide onto the landing gear (which it didn't), you couldn't utilize all the mating surfaces anyhow. What a waste of money that was.

So I have designed this four-point adjustable jack pad that will allow you to place it on the leg with more freedom. Near the wheel or near the fuselage, it doesn't matter!

For the uninitiated, you place this under your landing gear and bring a normal mechanic's floor jack up to the product. The tapered design will fit into the landing gear and raise the plane in a safe, efficient manner.

Furthermore, since the adjustable side of the adapter can rotate, it doesn't matter what the taper is of your landing gear. The adapter will sit flush and create a perfect fit, every time.

The product is 3/16" solid steel, powder-coated black and comes with high strength Grade 8 hardware. The strip of rubber goes between the jack pad and your landing gear, in an attempt to help save your paint. The adapter is compatible with most aircraft having flat spring steel landing gear (Cessna 150, 172, 182, etc).

You have your choice of several powder coated colors. Frankly, normal Black will look best and hide the inevitable wear and tear, but if you want to spice it up a little, you're certainly welcome to. Copper Vein and Silver Vein are pretty wild colors, as well.

My Jack Pads are in use at the following institutions:

  • The US Army.

  • At least two national FBO chains.

  • At least one major engine overhauler, STC-holder. You've heard of them.

  • Countless independent A&P's and IA's. 

Free USA Shipping. Worldwide Shipping at $20 (they're heavy, sorry) for one jack, any additional ship for free. 

If you're international and are buying more than one jack, choose ONE International option below, then the rest as a USA Buyer. That way you'll only pay shipping once.

One Position Aircraft Jack Pad for Cessna 150, 172, 182 & Others
Or, any similar tricycle gear aircraft with flat spring steel landing gear.


The included piece of rubber helps protect your paint during lifting operations.
I have carefully placed it several times on both my planes resulting in ZERO paint chipping or removal to either the adapter itself or the planes themselves.

There are plenty of non-adjustable jack pads on the market, but the problem is that you'll never know where on the gear the pad will slip onto.

Worse, if the manufacturer welded both edges of the tapered design in a fixed position, it may fit your plane poorly, or not at all (like in my case with TWO planes).

My adapters are different. And, obviously, I think they're better.

This jack pad is a one-width style, designed to fit somewhere above your foot rest (if you have one installed).

The right edge is still free to rotate, allowing it to fit a wide variety of aircraft.

You see in the below photos where it rests on my 1959 150 and also my 1957 172.

Despite the tapers of both landing gears being considerably different, the jack pad still conforms solidly to either plane allowing safe and efficient jacking.

This is the ideal product for flight school owners utilizing various Cessna models or the A&P that needs to lift them for wheel/axle/hub work.

Furthermore, the long neck eliminates the need for most, or all, cribbing of the actual floor jack itself.

In other words, it's long enough to just bring a floor jack up to the adapter and lift the plane.

The product is 3/16" solid steel, powder-coated black and comes with high strength Grade 8 hardware. The strip of rubber goes between the jack pad and your landing gear to help protect your paint.

The adapter is compatible with most aircraft having flat spring steel landing gear (Cessna 150, 172, 182, etc).
