Add a convenient and simple way to jack up your landing gear for conditional inspections or tire and brake maintenance.
Please note, this model is designed specifically to fit the slab-style gear on the Van’s RV-8 (it will not fit the RV-8A or other RVs with round gear). However, it may fit some other aircraft with slab or Grove style landing gear, such as the Extra 300 and One Design.
Installation is simple: a small and light base plate installs on the gear, then an adapter arm is easily added when you need to jack up the plane. The adapter arm gives you a sturdy and flat point to use with a scissor or floor jack to raise the gear.

Kit ships with all necessary hardware and includes a base plate for each landing gear, along with one lifting arm. If you would like to be able to jack up both landing gear at once, you can add an extra adapter arm (see “You may also like” section below).

I have not had time to install these yet, however the quality of workmanship looks to be excellent. I have friends who have these on their RV’s and speak highly of them.
