Is it safe to remove the two wire / coil retainers at the bottom?
I was wondering if it is safe to remove the the wire/spring retainers at the bottom of the floor jack since I will be leaving the jack in my garage and won't be transporting it anywhere. I ask because the two points are scratching my driveway flooring. I understand that this was a safety mechanism during shipment and as per the owner's manual, these wire retainers had to be removed before the jack head would even lift up.
The two springs coil attachments are at the very bottom and are at points lower than the jack trolley wheels.
Will there ever come a time that I will be required to re-install these wire/coil retainers at the bottom?

The wire holding down the yolk assembly is the only one that should be removed. This will not need to be used again unless you would be boxing the unit for shipment. This can be removed by pressing down on the yolk and releasing the yolk slowly after removal. The 2 springs on the unit should not removed.

Those "wire/spring retainers" are used to secure the jack mechanism during shipping. You discard those as per the instructions. The ones I have seen were there to also help the jack fit inside the box/packaging. You should never have to use them again unless you intend to fit the jack back into the box.
