PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Omega OMNI TM Bottle Jacks are designed to lift, not support, rated capacity loads consisting of one end of a
vehicle. Immediately after lifting, the load must be supported by a pair of appropriately rated jack stands.
!
Never use hydraulic jack as a stand alone device. After lifting, immediately support the lifted load
with a pair of appropriately rated jack stands. Never place any portion of your body under the load
while lifting or lowering the load.

PREPARATION
Before Use
1. Verify that the product and application are compatible, if in doubt call Omega technical service (888) 332-6419.
2. Before using this product, read the operator's manual completely and familiarize yourself thoroughly with the
product, its components and recognize the hazards associated with its use.
3. Assemble handle, ensure spring clips align with slots.
4. To familiarize yourself with basic operation, use the notched end of provided handle to engage and turn the release
valve:
a. Clockwise until firm resistance is felt to further turning. This is the ‘CLOSED’ release valve position used to
raise the ram plunger.
b. Counter-clockwise, but no more than 1 turn from the closed position. This is the ‘OPEN’ release valve
position used to lower the ram plunger.
5. With ram plunger fully retracted and jack in its upright, level position (Fig 1), locate and remove the oil filler plug.
Insert the handle into the handle sleeve, then pump 6 to 8 strokes. Ensure the oil level is just below the oil filler
hole. Reinstall the oil filler plug.
6. Check that the pump operates smoothly and that the extension screw will thread up/down easily before putting
into service. Replace worn or damaged parts and assemblies with Omega authorized replacement parts only.
Bleeding / Venting Trapped Air
With the release valve in the OPEN position (4b above) and with ram plunger fully lowered, locate and remove
the oil filler plug. Insert the handle into the handle sleeve; then pump 6 to 8 full strokes. This will help release any
pressurized air which may be trapped within the reservoir. Oil level should be even with the bottom of the oil filler
hole. Reinstall the oil filler plug.

OPERATION
Raising the Ram Plunger
1. Assemble handle, ensure that spring clips align with slots.
2. Place vehicle in park, with emergency brake on and wheel securely chocked to prevent inadvertent vehicle
movement.
3. Locate and close release valve by turning handle clockwise until firm resistance is felt to further thread
engagement.
4. Verify lift point, center jack saddle under lift point.
5. Insert the handle into the handle sleeve, then pump in order to raise saddle to contact lift point. To lift, continue
pumping until load reaches desired height.
6. Immediately secure lifted load with appropriately rated jack stands.
Use only the handle provided by jack manufacturer. The handle provided with this jack will safely engage
the release valve. If handle is worn, operates abnormally, or will not positively engage the release valve,
STOP, discontinue use of the jack until a factory replacement handle can be acquired.
!
!
Do not use an extender on the operating handle.
Lowering
Make certain that all personnel are clear of the load before lowering. Control the rate of descent of the
load at all times. The more you open the release valve, the faster the load descends.
!
1. Raise load high enough to clear the jack stands, then carefully remove jack stands (always used in pairs).
2. Slowly turn the handle counter-clockwise, but no more than 1 turn. If the load fails to lower:
a. Use another jack to raise the vehicle high
enough to reinstall jack stands.
b. Remove the affected jack and then the stands. c. Lower the load by turning the release valve counter-clockwise, but no more than 1 turn.
3. After removing jack from under the load, push ram and handle sleeve down to reduce exposure to rust and
contamination.
MAINTENANCE
Important: Use only good grade hydraulic jack oil.
NEVER use brake fluid, turbine oil, transmission fluid,
motor oil or glycerin. Improper fluid can cause premature failure of the jack and the potential for sudden and
immediate loss of load. Omega recommends Mobil
DTE 13M or equivalent.
2. Lay the jack on its side and drain the fluid into a
suitable container.
Note: Dispose of hydraulic oil in accordance with
local regulations.
3. Fill with oil until just below the rim of the oil filler
plug hole. Reinstall the oil filler plug.
Adding Oil
1. With saddle fully lowered and pump piston fully
depressed, set jack in its upright, level position.
Remove oil filler plug.
2. Fill with oil until just below the rim of the oil filler plug
hole. Reinstall the oil filler plug.
Lubrication
A periodic coating of light lubricating oil to pivot points,
axles and hinges will help prevent rust and ensure that
pump assemblies move freely.
Cleaning
Periodically check the pump piston and ram for signs
of rust or corrosion. Clean as needed and wipe with
an oily cloth.
Changing Oil
For best performance and longest life, replace the
complete fluid supply at least once per year.
1. With saddle fully lowered and pump piston fully
depressed, remove the oil filler plug.
Storage
When not in use, store the jack with pump piston and
ram fully retracted and air supply disconnected.
