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.
