Professional Toe Jacks
Slide Shoe Design: What is it and how does it work?
The most important feature of this toe jack is not visible from the outside. It is the patented Slide Shoe Design.
When lifting the load with the toe, the jack will want to lean forward. This causes the jack to want to 'kick out', and the piston inside of the jack becomes twisted forward. When the piston is raised and lowered while twisted, it grinds and chips away at the shaft. This is problematic with all toe jacks.
The solution is the Slide Shoe Design.
The silver boot carrying the lifting toe travels inside the red housing. Inside this shaft are half-moon shape inserts that are recessed into the walls. These half-moons called slide shoes, will counterbalance the leaning of the jack, preventing any damage to the shaft, and reduces the 'kick-out' tendencies. The Slide Shoe feature is patent protected and exclusively built into these JUNG jacks.
