InventHelp Inventor Develops Enhanced Automotive Lift

Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Portable Compact Under Carriage Lift to applicable companies for their consideration.


"Combining a transverse-mounted drive line with low ground clearance, it is impossible to place a stock jack on a vehicle’s narrow jack point and insert a jack stand on the same narrow jack point," said an inventor from Watsonville, Calif. "Most maintenance & repair cycles require attention on an equally raised vehicle."

He created a prototype for the patent-pending PORTABLE COMPACT UNDER CARRIAGE LIFT to easily lift a passenger car with a unitized body design completely off the ground. The unit eliminates the need to purchase three additional floor jacks as this task is performed in a noncommercial environment. It also serves as a safety prop in the event that the vehicle fell. The device features a compact, lightweight, easily portable design. Additionally, it is usable by both professional mechanics and do-it-yourselfers.

The original design was submitted to the San Francisco office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
