Lippert Jack-It 2 Bike Rack for A-Frame Trailers Compatibility with Hand Crank Jack


I like the design of the Jack-It 2 bike rack. I see the picture shows a power jack on the trailer. I have a hand spinner crank on our 17foot Casita trailer. The Jack-It wont work with a crank handle correct - as the lower main part goes over the jack?


Expert Reply:

The Jack-It 2 Bike Rack for A-Frame Trailers # LC429756 will work with a hand crank jack as long as it is on the side. Technically you could even use a top crank jack but it wouldn't be ideal as you would need to stop every 1/4 turn to adjust around the rack base.

For best fit, the hand crank just needs to be accessible. You will mount the jack with the Jack-It Bike Rack in mind so that the hand crank is on the outside and accessible. I've attached a photo from a trade show to assist with the visual.
