First of all clean the jacks very thoroughly. If they are really dirty, tap gently with a hammer to release sand and dirt, hose thoroughly, repeat. Lubricate every part of the jack with lots of wd40. Check that the part of the jack that extends down has been fully released and pushed up into the upper portion of the jack. Then grasp the jack with both hands and tug it down. While the jack is pulled down, swing it up under the trailer until it clicks into place.

What is a jack lift?
"A jack lift is a mechanical device used as a lifting device to lift heavy loads or apply great forces. Jacks employ a screw thread or hydraulic cylinder to apply very high linear forces.
A mechanical jack is a device which lifts heavy equipment. The most common form is a car jack, floor jack or garage jack which lifts vehicles so that maintenance can be performed.
More powerful jacks use hydraulic power to provide more lift over greater distances. Mechanical jacks are usually rated for a maximum lifting capacity (for example, 1.5 tons or 3 tons)." (Wikipedia)
