Category: Jack a Flat
Place a sandbag securely across the foot of the jack.
Continue to insert two screws through each plate on either side of the jack.
Using a screwgun, insert 1-5/8″ screws through the jack plates and into the edge of the plywood rib.
With the flat standing vertically, move the jack into position against the plywood ribs at the back of the flat.
Jacks (or jack-stands) are used to keep a wall or other standing object from tipping over. Essentially they are reinforced legs of plywood that are attached with screws onto the back of an object. Once attached, sandbags are placed on the foot of a jack to weigh it all down.
