    A hard rubber ice hockey puck is a few quid off Ebay and is perfect to go on top of your trolley jack plate to stop it taking the paint off the jacking points. Better than a bit of wood!

    I was taught Never to build castles!!

    Iff ,when you have your van jacked up a gust of wind or a HGV goes by ,your castle will fall over...if you have the road wheel off it will cost you a lot more than a few flakes of paint

    ?? You've lost me there. I'm talking about the van being on a jack because you're doing essential maintenance work on it - probably on your driveway.

    Nice thought but I'll stick with wood. That way it'll "mould" itself to whatever point I'm jacking up and help settle it all in a nice solid way.

    Used wood for years and not so sure if a small puck would be as good. I'll keep it in mind though:)
