    1st review

    Although Res-Q-Jack has several different flavors of jacks and struts, as well as saws and straps, this review is for the 'Space Saver'. The system I got a chance to work with contains 2 jacks, 2 struts, and straps for each (total of 4). The system is very easy for a couple of companies to set up (we had 2 engine companies at the training - 3 person companies - and the system took on avg. about 6 minutes to set up). Although practice is necessary with them to become proficient (such is life with all tools) these are fairly 'firefighter proof'. They are made very durable, which makes them heavy to carry. Although they are suprisingly heavy, the space savings they offier in the rig is great. Overall, I would recommend them to any crew; definately NOT a waste of money.

    These things are just cool. I was a bit skeptical at first, but no more. I have used the Res-Q-Jack in dozens of applications. I am definitely satisfied with this product.

    We just purchased a res-q-jack set, and I love it. It's extremely versatile and can be modified to handle just about any job.

    Any agency accepting the challenge of providing vehicle rescue and extrication services to its community should not be caught without this tool...given todays newer vehicle technology and construction, this tools assists by enabling recure crews to quickly and safely stabilize just about any given vehicle rescue situation in a short amount of time...and according to some vehicle rescue experts, stabilization may be the weakest part of thre entire extrication effort!

    The day that the jacks arrived at our station, 3 hrs later we had a nasty roll over in a ditch w/entrapment. It would have taken a lot longer to stabilize this vehicle if we had done it our usual way. These jacks saved us a lot of time in stabilizing the vehicle, was a key part in the quick extrication of the driver. He lived. We have used these jacks in a lot of applications & they work GREAT!!! And most important makes it safer for all of us working on the vehicle and for the patiants.

    provides good stablization. I prefer the ones with the hand cranks.

    These seem to be a great tool. We don't have any of these on our trucks yet, but I've been trying to convince our county chief to buy some. The only chance that I've really had to use them is when I was attending Advanced Extrication and Big Rig Rescue classes and they seemed to work really well then and I didn't have any troubles learning how to use them.

    This is a great product and my department has the compleat set and we use them alot but I thing the rescue 42s might of been a better choice.........Attached is a discription for the rescue 42 struts.

    Rescue 42, Inc. developed the TeleCribbing® Stabilization system back in 2000. It has been extremely successful, helping Fire and Rescue crews perform extrication and rescue in an environment safer for both rescuers and victims. Our old system was manufactured of galvanized steel “signpost” type material. While this material is OK, it has some problems. It is heavy, relatively weak, and is easily attacked by moisture and many chemicals including battery acid! It also conducts electricity, which is very undesirable due to the popularity of hybrid electric cars.
    Time has moved on, and there have been tremendous advances in the field of Advanced Composites. Rescue 42 has partnered with a progressive Composites manufacturer to develop a proprietary system for producing the revolutionary Composite TeleCrib® Struts! Most Firefighters will remember the days of steel SCBA bottles, and how the advent of composite bottles made steel bottles obsolete. The strength, light weight, chemical resistance, and non-conductive properties of our advanced composite TeleCrib® struts have made the old “signpost” and other types of steel struts completely obsolete!

    we got to use these in our basic vehicle rescue class and they were by far one of the most easiest tools to use.

    I am an rescue instructor and I believe the res-q-jacks should be on every rescue. They are versitile, easy to use and make the scene safer, faster. My department did not have any until I had a vendor demo a set at our station and now we are puchasing a set I am a huge fan.

    We recently got Res-Q-Jack equipment on our new rescue rig. After several training sessions, everybody is singing its praises. Wish we would have had this a long time ago.

    These work really well but are heavy. Also after a few our guys got a pinched finger with the locking pin I ties a 1/8 inch piece of rope to the pin to grab. It is safer and much easier to use with gloves. Just tie a figure 8 in the end.

    First used during an advanced extrication class and quickly realized we needed them ASAP for our department's rescue toolbox . . .6yrs later, we finally got a set!! lol! Typical> Anyway, these are improved over the units we used in class: easier to set up and more adaptable for MVA or structural collapse or any number of incidents where a little extended stability would be handy. Definitely a recommended product.
