Fits well in your trunk and is not a pain to carry, the T10152 Scissor Jack by Torin is the simplest and most balanced jack available on the market today. Its size is not that daunting and it can be easily transported since it weighs less than eight pounds.
The extremely long handle, coupled with a shiny red coat of paint, makes the tool a joy to work with. It is affordable and can support most lightweight vehicles at 1.5 tons.
Below are some of its key features, that may inspire you to buy more scissor jacks for your garage and inside your trunk for emergencies.

What makes the Scissor Jack so powerful is that all Torin products are factory-tested and made in the same factory in China. It is affordable for its size and power because it uses few parts to raise the vehicle up.
The factory ensures that the scissor design of the tool raises the vehicle without problems on the quality side. They make sure that the foundation, particularly the base, is solid enough to support up to 3,000 pounds of weight.
The T10152 sounds like a cybernetic organism from the Terminator series, complicated for some to use, if you are just going to judge it on its name. But it’s not – you simply align the tool with the contact point of the car, crank up its handle, and the vehicle just rises without much effort from the operator.
An impressive lifting range of 3¾” to 15”, coupled with a very wide base, makes lifting an easy task for this red Torin jack. It makes other, bigger tools look weak by comparison, if you are going to compare its size with actual performance.
This tool clearly shows that even the smallest jacks can lift exceptionally well. It may be small but it can perform without encountering too many problems when it comes to foundation and strength. It certainly packs a lot of punch.
Steel is the great equalizer. The body frame of the Scissor Jack is made of pure steel and is surprisingly light at 7.7 pounds. This makes the jack easy to lift and strong enough to bear a lot of weight.
Its limited weight capacity can turn off people who expected this to help them with huge vehicles. It does not cut corners when it comes to quality, but the Scissor Jack does stop working if you are operating with larger automobiles.
Another possible turn-off for some is lack of color options. It only comes in red so if you are not a fan of the color, you might want to check other products similar to it.
Overall the Scissor Jack is a solid nine out of ten. It could have scored higher – even higher than ten – had the manufacturers raised its power level to more than one-and-a-half tons.
Users say that this is the only problem they have with the product. They were so satisfied with it that they bought Scissor Jacks for their bigger vehicles, only to realize that it can only carry a 1.5-ton load.
Anything beyond the rated weight limit will make the jack dangerous to use.
There are other jacks that can lift heavier loads. They may be heavier but they get the job done. Some jacks can carry up to three tons so if you are going to do some serious heavy lifting, there are hundreds of other tools sold online that can do better.
Bigger is always better when you’re talking about the quality of the product. A higher weight capacity is better because you can work on vans and even small trucks.
However if you are just working on a sedan, this modest powerhouse is just what you need
The Scissor Jack shines in the storage department, too, so it is not difficult to bring it to different places. Carrying it will not be a problem as it is less than ten pounds and is small enough to fit into corners where children cannot reach. Putting it in the trunk would not be a problem.
Although it is not a big issue for people, the red coloration is the only option you have when it comes to the paint job.
If you are looking to buy a jack that has different design choices, the T10152 Scissor Jack by Torin may not be strong in that department but it gets the job of lifting vehicles with ease.
