Trailer Jack "Flip Foot" ??

I have been interested in installing a Fastway Flip Foot on my trailer tongue jack. If one can believe the advertising, it is just what I am looking for to avoid using wood to raise the level of the tongue. Anyone have an comments, experience or opinions on this item?

Experience? No.
Opinion? No.
Comment? Yeah! That's cool! I wish I had seen that in the days when I pulled a TT.

Interesting idea, but I have not found the need to change or modify my typical Lippert power jack.

I installed one on my Wildwood 17EXL last year not long after getting it. It works great. Had a tent trailer before it and of course it had the wheel dolly to put on the bottom of the jack leg, the new trailer did not have anything. First time I used it, not thinking about it and did not have any wood to put under leg and the leg was not long enought to get the trailer off the hitch.

It is easy to install and flips up and out of the way as you crank up the jack for travelling and quite sturdy when down in place. I would recommend it.

I recently installed one of these devices. It does work as promised though trailers that are low riders will have issues. It is almost too long. I have a surveyor 235. I don't have a power jack, it cuts down on the cranking!

I looked at that myself. I wanted so I didnt have to crank the handle so darn much. I did not purchase to due the weight rating being really close to my tongue weight. Figured with the bed in the front we would be adding too much weight while using the camper. So I went electric, no more cranking

I have one on my trailer with a power jack and love it, I figured it save's time and it should save the jack in the end cause it doesn't have to travel so far. As for high ground you simply set it at a 90* angle on your block.

I installed one last year - with my electric tongue jack - I love love it and it's a head turner for sure.

Works as advertised, plain and simple.
