What's a JACKMATE?
At the risk of sounding stupid, what is a "Jackmate" for the high lift jack?
I use the jack in extrication, I even have one of my own, and have never really heard of it. I asked several firefighters and they never heard of it either.

JackMate is an attachment for the Hi-Lift type jack that essentially converts the Jack into a light set of "Jaws", as well as adding other features such as spikes that can be rigged off the bottom to prevent the Jack from slipping, a Chain Slot and a Clevis Shackle hole for winching, etc.
