I would suggest to put additional jackstand or spare wheel as a backup in any case the liftjack fails/ fall down. just a safety measure
Made a video to show how QuickJack lifts since you asked. The bar in the middle of the jack is the mechanical lock that keeps the jack upright even without hydraulic pressure.

how do you release the lock? Just lift each side individually? This is electrically actuated? Nice

To lower the jack, first step is raise the jacking frame to the highest position to release the mechanical lock. Then manually pull the bar up on each side to reset the locking cam (silver piece at the end). From there just lower down the jack.

The frames are lifted using hydraulic pressure provided by an electric hydraulic pump powered by a 12V battery (car battery will do)
