If you mean the a-frame jack, it has a built in handle.

If you mean the corner stabilizers that that look like scissors jacks, they take a standard 3/4" socket. Some folks use a drill-driver to raise and lower them. I use a speed handle.

Just an important point here, the corner stabilizers are not strong enough to lift the trailer and are designed to do so. They are strictly intended to take a portion of the weight in order to prevent or minimize movement when setup for use. If you need to actually jack up the trailer, use a real jack with an adequate weight rating.

Post a pic please. That may be a different type of jack. The old scissors jacks used a crank handle made out of round rod with the end bend over. If that's what you have, you will have improvise your own.

Or have bolts with a 3/4" head welded on the end of the jacks.

the jacks work ok and the piece you stick the rod into has a pin where you can detach it from the jack.....have you ever seen a piece that has been fitted on there that has 3/4 " nut attached to it

Without seeing what you are describing, it's kind of difficult to guess what you have there. Please post a pic.

I assume you have the jacks with multiple holes in it? If so it's nothing more than a steel rod that fits in the hole they rise one hole at a time and lock in.
