Jan. 9, 2017—An inventor from Fords, N.Y., developed the patent pending automatic hydraulic jack system. This invention provides a quick way to lift a flat tire off the ground during the tire replacement process.
The invention eliminates the need for manual manipulation of a traditional scissors-style jack. It also provides a safer means of changing a flat tire at night or in poor weather conditions. In addition, it offers a more convenient way to perform various tasks such as brake service, oil changes, snow tire installations and inspections.
The original design was submitted to the New Jersey office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
"I invented this hydraulic system due to personal experience. I found the need to develop a safer and more efficient way of changing flat tires on the roadside," said the inventor, who was not named in the press release.
