Stabilize While Standing

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

My wife always puts down the stabilizer scissor jacks when we park. It has gotten harder for her to bend down and use the electric drill socket, so I made an extension so she can stand up straight while extending and retracting the stabilizers. I bought a 30-inch 3⁄8-inch-drive socket extension, a ¾-inch-deep well socket, a 3⁄8-inch flex universal swivel and a 3⁄8-inch electric drill adapter, and snapped them all together. All she has to do is put the ¾-inch socket on the jack and use the drill to raise and lower the jack, using forward and reverse. Putting down the stabilizers is now an easy process she can do while standing.
