Rolling Jacks for Your Garage: Hydraulic Pit Jacks Vs. Fast Lube Rolling Pit Jacks

Phil Dunphy (Modern Family S11 E11 “Legacy” spoiler alert for those of who prefer to live under a rock), might have been “fortunate” enough to have witnessed “one local inventor (who) has been hard at work on the Presto-Jack™, a pneumatic device that both lifts a car and powers a drill to change lug nuts”, doesn’t mean you don’t get to benefit from the rare esoteric wisdom he soon gained. 

Packaged in a rather beautifully emotional roller-coaster of a scene, the goof spent the day with his father, Frank Dunphy the said “local inventor”, trying to change a flat tire using Frank’s ill-fated and much too powerful invention called the Presto Jack™. This certainly makes for a wholesome character arc in a comedy series for, as the name suggests, modern families. 

While the show had nothing to do with rolling jacks otherwise, its storyline always portrayed Frank and Phil Dunphy (the father-son duo) as a couple of happy-go-lucky lads who were always curious about learning and experimenting with odd things in life, no matter their age or level of experience. 

Shortly after, People Magazine reported, “Modern Family Kills off Phil Dunphy’s Dad Frank After Their Emotional Final Scene Together”. This scene, which was a part of the episode, paid tribute to Fred Willard, who played the role of Frank on the show, for his death by natural causes both on and off the camera.

  1. The force applied to press the ‘Start’ button of the remote-controlled jack apparently directly affects its performance,
  2.  the ‘End Task’ button can only end the affected task’s performance positively if pressed on the right side of the button body not the left,
  3. and that “everybody warned” Frank that “this (the car blowing up, turning over, and effectively self-destroying) would happen”.
