Scissor Jacks

Is there a way to make a set of scissor jacks that have the hook crank into a set that you can use a nut driver or socket on? Can the threaded bolt be taken out and replaced with one that a socket can be used on?

Or do I have to replace all 4 jacks to get what I want?

I'm sure you can cut and weld what you want on there, or if your jacks are similar to the type I had, I was able to use an allen wrench in a drill and it worked just as good as the type that use the 3/4" socket

The slot you put the hook into is round on mine, I don't see any way to get an allen wrench to bite on anything in it.

Its called a hook style scissor jack. They make a drill accessory for it, but I would rather use an allen or a socket.

An L shaped allen wrench would go through the whole in place of the hook. I guess you could cut the hook off but if it is rounded the drill chuck probably would not grip it very well

I used a larger allen wrench that filled the whole. Worked great for me and definitively sped up the process. My drill was an 18 volt with 1/2" chuck. It has two speeds and I used the slower speed with more torque
