If you’ve got a scissor jack and don’t particularly enjoy slowly lifting your car one lever pull at a time, YouTube user stThicket offers the simple trick in the video above: use an electric drill with a hook as the bit. [YouTube via Gizmodo]

  • I’m constantly surprised by what I see on LH. So many things which I would have thought to be common knowledge, apparently are not. I know about [some of] these things, but I don’t think to share them with everyone else. I guess that’s why we need Lfehacker. <3

  • BTW if you are wondering what to use as a hook I used a tent peg (I was changing the tyre on the camping trailer – so it seemed only fitting!) It worked a treat! The tent peg fits just right in the chuck, and was strong enough not to bend – don’t make my mistake and have the drill on too fast though!
