Uhmmmm...a Canadian team hasn't won it in the last two decades...hell, haven't won it since the last Millennium.Hockey is Canada's national sport Mr Marvic. We have hockey pucks everywhere, here. :willy: Granted we don't win the Stanley cup every year. We must let the americans win it, from time to time, just to keep things interesting. :jester:
Its not the item but the process... http://www.netanimations.net/puck-breaks-glass.gifHockey pucks
Drill a hole in the center
Install a bolt with a butterfly nut
If you want to leave them on
Thanks for the pictures! This is very helpfulI was just having a little fun, but what I said about using the proper tool in the proper way applies. Personally, I use a block of wood between the jack and the lifting point in order to clear the fender, it's worked as well as the hockey puck, or the lifting pucks sold by many places on the internet.
If you have a lift, check the drawing in #1 and the placement in #3.

Unfortunately no... as a matter of fact, my polished aluminum pucks I got 11 years ago fit VERY loose. I cut out some foam wrap washers that go between the body & the puck to help hold them in place while I jack the car. Forget to pull them out the other day. lost one of the 4 on a quick post maintenance neighborhood/highway blast... now only have 3.are those made to leave them in or to put in place as you need them?
FWIW:I recommend jacking at the tie down slots as they are the only hard points under the car. The front “jacking point” is not able to withstand multiple jacking events. They bend and become useless
That is because those front structures are "lifting" points and not "jacking" points. They should only be used with a vertical lift.
Absent a formal analysis, I will say that the difference between jacking and lifting is substantial in that jacking at one point exerts significantly more than 25% of the weight of the car on that point, and the application of the load is by the edge of the jack pad and not flat-to-flat.Thanks Dave
On my car the repetitive lifting badly deformed these lifting points. Enough do I had to make metal pads to return them to service
And my Mechanical Engineering background though in the fin past suggests the difference between lifting and jacking are minor. Both are vertical loads on the structure. Depending on the jack there may be dome horizontal component but it’s relatively small and the deformation I observed was due to vertical loads exceeding the design load. The “lifting point” has insufficient load bearing capacity to perform its task, eethet lifting or jacked.
thr hard points at the slots in the frame on the other hand are holding up well as designed
This is along the lines of the differences I was thinking about between a lift and a jack.
