Each Pan Pillow starts out with 2 feet of a 75 PSI
High Endurance hose.
Before any assembly can begin, the top side of the tube is prepped and
sent out to be professionally coated with a product called Rhino
Lining. Many of you will know it as a spray on box liner for truck
Two identical chrome over brass valve stems are installed, one on each
end of the tube. One with a valve for filling, and one without a valve,
for draining. Having 2 identical valve stems allows you to choose which
side of the Pan Pillow you would like to fill and drain from by simply
moving the valve from one stem to the other. Valve stems are chrome
over brass, the same valve stem you would find on any car tire.
Each valve stem comes with a metal cap. Inside this metal cap is a
rubber O ring. It is CRITICAL you only use a metal cap with a rubber O
ring ONLY. You are relying on the seal from this O ring to ensure the
Pan Pillow does not deflate during transport. Never use a plastic cap
in any situation.
Legs are made from ½ inch solid aluminum rod bent in the
of a “U”. These legs straddle the tubing on either
the center pivot point.
Each end of the tube is squeezed closed between (2) 1/8 x 1 inch x 16.5
inch long aluminum flat bar. 11 Ultra Heavy Duty rivets seal each end
Safety cable is made from 1/8 inch galvanized cable with a
chrome-coated clasp and rings.
The Pan Pillow has a working load
limit of 20
PSI. For use in oil pan protection, you would need approximately 5 PSI.
When using as a jacking device, 20 PSI. See Examples page.
YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU ORDER
It is far to difficult to try to keep up with
all the makes, models and
years, so with the help of many of you I have never met (thank you) 7
common sizes were created. To ensure your Pan Pillow will fit properly,
please refer to the 2 pictures below for the correct sizing for your
wheel lift. Sizes do not have to be exact. Next size larger than your
measurements will work fine. This is an example of a 9 inch
spread with 3.5 inch tubing.
Please note the picture next to the sizing and you will see the leg
mount brackets are riveted directly to the tubing.
3 inch legs with an 8 inch spread
3.5 inch legs with a 9 inch spread
3.5 inch legs with an 11 inch spread
All sizes with a spread larger than 11 inches
require the legs to be
mounted to a 3 x 6 inch plate. These plates are riveted closer to the
center of the tube allowing the Pan Pillow to form to its designed
shape once inflated. Bonus to this is that you can replace legs and leg
mounts without having to open up the tube.
3.5 inch legs with a 14 inch spread
3.5 inch legs with a 16 inch spread
4.0 inch legs with a 16 inch spread
4.5 inch legs with a 16 inch spread
6.5 inch legs with a 16 inch spread
If you have a wheel lift that these sizes won’t fit, we also
build custom sizes.
