Maybe some of you have already found this out but I was just introduced to it. "It" involves using a regulation hockey puck as a "shim" for jacking or lifting your car. It sure seems to beat my current method of wood shims that tend to get lost, used or broken.


Best,

Jeff

I've done this [used a hockey puck] for years when jacking all my cars.

For the later 4 cylinders or V8s,the puck needs to have a slit cut into it if you are jacking via the sill. That makes it unsuitable for actually playning hockey!

They can be slippery if they have paper or plastic ads on them.

I like these little fellows. Home Depot. More fragile (everything is more fragile than a hockey puck. Even a rock) but have excellent grip.

When I ordered from Black Watch Racing, they sent a complimentary hockey puck with their logo on it. This was two years ago.
