The Reverse Logic second generation Model 3 jack pad tool incorporates a retractable, self-adjusting magnet which attaches the tool to the chassis. The captive magnet extends 5mm above the top of the post when inserted into the jack point. The retractable magnet design compensates for small variations in the depth and shape of the jack point location hole and precludes the magnet from ever supporting the weight of the car.
This jack pad tool is 18mm thick, a full 10mm shorter than first generation Tesla Model 3 jack pad. The low profile design accommodates taller floor jack saddles and higher 2-post lift arms, especially on the lower Performance chassis. The Safety Yellow Silicone band replaces the "grip" groove on the original tools and is a visible reminder that the jack pad tools are in place.
Unlike most American cars with pinch weld type jack points, Tesla vehicles have unique jack points with approximately one inch diameter locating holes. The Model S and Model X chassis feature injection molded jack points which are bolted to the chassis behind the front tires and ahead of the rear tires. The Model 3 chassis has integral jack points which are not removable.
The Reverse Logic jack pad tools are proudly made in the USA. The tools take the guess work out of positioning a floor jack beneath the Tesla vehicle jack points. The post on the tools precisely locate the tool in the center of the jack point on the car. The tools provides a comfortable amount of clearance between the undercarriage and the rim of a floor jack saddle or the pad on the arm of a 2-post lift. The jack pad tools are not intended to be permanently installed on the car.
