They seem like the best option but I didn't want to spend $100 on them. They would also be harder to carry in the car.
Ah F it I'll just go to home depot with the measurements and pick up some wood. It'll give me an excuse to start looking at wood for a new table anyways.

Do you know the dimensions of your inserts? If not its time to bust out the tape measure.

i jack up my car from those plastic jack points all the time works fine no issues but i only do things like wheels and brake pads. i never felt comfortable putting my car on jack stands so i just go to the local shop and use the lift. Its way easier and i odnt have to worry about jack stands

I found this jack has the right size for our plastic jack point so I am using this.
If you are living in Europe, it will be easy to purchase.

Also I carry this block in the trunk. I cut aluminum block in 30mm x 30mm x 55mm to use with other jacks or lifts.

so is 30x30x55 the correct dimension for those square points? How much free space is there inside of that rectangular lift point?
