It's near useless. You already have a jack that works ok, and if you're going to get something nicer, get the big heavy red jack like what Kalim has. It's only like $110.

They have a lot of good stuff, because many situations it's ok to have the cheapest option. Some situations you simply don't want cheap stuff.

I haven't been particularly impressed with recent Craftsman stuff. Seems like it's gotten cheaper to compete with Chinese goods.

Craftsman isn't bad, just more expensive than harbor freight which is almost as good and half the price.
