    Can anyone post a digital picture of a jungle jack with the locking safety arm in place? I just got one, but I cannot quite tell from the directions how to secure the locking safety arm.

    Thank you.

    I have one. I try to remember to get a picture of it for you.

    Other wise the arm should fold down and the pin should go throught the holes in the arms and through the tube on the jack.

    Thanks, I would appreciate a picture, I know the pin comes out, just not sure where to stick it back in and do I lock the arm in place after the mower is jacked up or before?

    Thank you for the pictures. I think you locking safety arm is a bit different that mine. I had photocopies of directions, which were not very clear but, went to jungle jack's website and found a picture, which I am attaching, so I am sure I've got it now. Thanks for your help !

    I had a feeling that you had a newer style one. I have the older style. Mine has a lot of wear on it. (had to replace the roller bearing in the one wheel)

    Usally I don't bother putting the safety arm down. If I am just changing blades(since I am not crawling under the machine). If its other work which requires getting under the machine, then the arm goes down.

    I will be using mine to scrape the grass clippings off and/or washing them off the bottom when my son is not around to hold the handles down. Thanks for your help.......
