CrossJack, the revolutionary new car jack, is now on Kickstarter!
CrossJack is the safer car jack that helps prevent cars from slipping off the jack by providing substantially more stability through its "x-designed" base.
The scissor jack design, currently in most vehicles, was granted 100 years ago, and has not evolved in any significant way. That's going to change with CrossJack.
When Dr. J. Alford "Ford" Flippin was a third-year medical student, a patient was brought into the trauma bay that would change his life. The patient was trapped under his vehicle after it fell off a jack during a repair. The patient's heart was cut in half, and he died almost instantly. Dr. Flippin recalled an incident two weeks prior when he had knocked his own car off a jack while changing a flat tire. It was right there, in the middle of an on-call shift, that he sat down, and drew a better jack, which became CrossJack.
This revolutionary idea existed only on paper for almost four years. During his surgery residency, Dr. Flippin saw three more patients injured by vehicles falling off of car jacks. This was a problem that urgently needed a solution, and he already had it. After doing extensive research with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, he soon realized that the problem was even bigger than he could have ever imagined.
Approximately 10,000 people go to the ER every year in the United States for an injury caused by a faulty car jack. The lifetime cost for these injuries ranges from $85,000 to over $3 million.
"We at CrossJack want to see our product in every car on the road," says Dr. Flippin, now a board-certified surgeon about to complete his trauma surgery fellowship. "Safety is our top concern and is quite literally the foundation of CrossJack. Every car needs a CrossJack, whether you're a new driver, a car enthusiast, or a soccer mom taking her kids to practice, if your car breaks down or you need to do a quick tire change, CrossJack is the safest solution to have in the trunk of your car."
The pre-order campaign for CrossJack will run on Kickstarter through April 4, 2020. https://bit.ly/
