Product description

This recall involves the Evercraft Transmission Jack with model number 776-4003 and the NAPA Transmission Jack with model number 520-4003.  The model numbers can be found at the rear of the lift arm and in front of the lifting handle.

Hazard identified

As of November 27, 2017, the company has received no reports or injuries related to the use of this product.
