Rescue 42, Inc. Releases the JackMate® Lift Jack Accessory

Oct. 8, 2009

(CHICO, CA) - Rescue 42, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of the JackMate® Lift Jack Accessory. The JackMate® is designed to replace a standard jack's limited capacity top clamp with a multipurpose attachment which is rated to the full capacity of the jack as a clamp, winch, spreader or a base. "The JackMate® was originally designed for the Fire/Rescue industry, but has found a nitch in the off-road, construction and agriculture sectors as well", states inventor Tim O'Connell. "It increases the versatility of your existing jack and gives you more options in the field".

The JackMate® slides over either end of the jack bar and is attached with a quick-release pin. As a top clamp, the JackMate® dramatically increases the jack's winching, clamping and crushing capabilities. As a replacement for the jack base, the JackMate® is engineered to "bite" into boards or logs to help prevent the jack from sinking in mud, sand, ice and snow.

Additional features include a super-grip, diamond plate top, wire fence pulling slots (which doubles as a bottle opener), an easier pin for attaching the JackMate® to the jack, and quick release replacement pin for the jack's base. Mr. O'Connell also notes that the JackMate® is made in the US from 100% US steel, which he feels is important in this economic climate.

The JackMate® is designed to fit most brands of lift jacks. Additional information about The JackMate® Lift Jack Accessory and distribution options can be found at or by calling Rescue 42 toll free at (888) 427-3728.

Pricing and Availability:
The JackMate® Lift Jack Accessory is available in Silver Vein and Fire Engine Red and sells for $39.95. They are available for purchase online at and will soon be available at many other online and retail stores.
