Can't find a foot that fits my tongue jack

Hello - I've been searching everything I can think of to find a foot for the tongue jack I have. I've attached some pictures so you can see what it looks like. Every tongue jack foot I can find has a pin that inserts the whole way through the pipe - mine only has an odd shaped hole on one side. Anyone familiar with this type of tongue jack and where I can find a matching foot?

Welcome to iRV2.

The jack you have was set up to use a removable metal caster wheel; that usually get lost or misplaced over the years and owners of the TT ; a plate would require the shaft be modified to fit.

EDIT : The bolt your seeing would be to prevent the plate from bouncing off during travel.

A drill, a sharp drill bit, a punch, and some time and effort could make a hole on the other side of the one that exists already. Then all you need to do after that is go shopping.

I had the same Thing happened to my jack. The stupid bolt on the bottom came out and I lost the foot. .I didn't even know the bolt was loose.

I looked and looked and could never find a foot that would mount from the bottom like that. I think this is the correct foot but I couldn't find where to purchase it from. My jack was a barker Jack.

Replacement Jack foot , 23 618-1002 1 LOCKWASHER .50, 24 600-0011 1 HEX BOLT .50-20 X .75, 45 10017 1 POST ADAPTER, 37 21349 1 BASE H.T.

get hold of a serious drill with a " chuck, and be sure its a slow speed.

secondly get some cutting oil

Piece of cake, find a drill bit the same size as the hole, stick it in there and go.
Pretty thin stuff, shouldn't be too hard to do as long as the bit is sharp!

You discovered the foot that many people use. A good old board or two.

I just put a lynx block under it to ensure the rocky surface didn't crack the bottom.

See datysons has not returned to see or comments, but as many has said, if nothing else, buy a cheap jack foot, drill the hole out, take a bolt,2 flat washers, lock washer,and nut, and but the dern foot on " It Ain't Brain Surgery "

I agree with Offcamber; we've been using our Camco jack stand for years now with nary a problem and it doesn't move around! You might consider it. Happy Camping!!
