"Now change topic sort of-- I'm using one of these hex socket adapters
from harbor freight
3 Piece Hex Drill Socket Drivers
and a 3/4 el cheapo socket to run my jacks via craftsman battery drill.
This combination works OK but it's 2 piece so every once in a while the
socket goes missing---- I usually find it hanging on the last jack I used
it on
I wouldn't mind having one of these one piece driver sockets to do the job.
Camco 57363 Camco 57363 Leveling Scissor Jack Socket: Automotive"

You can try epoxy and it will not release from the adapter/socket. It may, after some time come loose, but for a few cents of epoxy just reglue it.

Blowout plug

I use the Camco blowout plug. Double duty, keeps the crud out and then when winter rolls around it does it real job.
