  • Jack Storage Bag

    Has anyone seen or made a pouch to put the jack in so it doesn't just rattle around in the trunk. Maybe designed like a tool pouch that has a flap that is secured with a shoe string. Maybe a sleeve on the side for the lug wrench. And of course the Triumph logo. Bobby D?

    I've never seen one in the 43 years of TR ownership and going to shows and swap meets. The bulkiness of the scissors jack kinda makes it expensive to make a bag for it.
    The E-Types had a pouch for their jacks, but the jacks for them are flat, screw type affairs.

      Bet if you put it in a section motorcycle tire tube it will quiet it down. I have mine in an old tube sock I got out of the rag box, works pretty well.

          My jack is wrapped in an old bath towel. No noises - disclaimer: I have an ANSA exhaust system

            Before the Mitty this year, I chased a rattle that had developed in my car. Sounded like it was coming right from the passenger's right foot or right knee. Maybe even their door panel. I tightened and messed with everything I could to eliminate the problem. Eventually, I gave up and rattled on to the event.

            A month later, I got under the trunk panel for something and picked up the jack handle - which rattled exactly like the sound I had been hearing in the cockpit!!!

            I wrapped it and the jack in a scrap of bath towel and no more rattle in the cockpit. Sound transference is a pretty crazy thing.

                Oddly enough, I just bought a jack handle on eBay and it came with two plastic storage bags. I don't think they're OEM but they're definitely "period correct". They fold over with two snaps. No logo though. They're a thick plastic material, kind of like what a rubber raft would be made of. Haven't tried sticking the jack in there though. I just tighten the spare tire down on the handle and wedge the jack in between the aft wall of the well and the tire. Hasn't moved in years.
