I've got a pair in my shed that I bought some time ago, but have never got round to fitting. They have square pegs at either end, and these just slide into the jacking points. One of the pegs has a hole with a bolt, and that locks the whole thing into place. My worry was that they were quite difficult to get on (they're a tight fit), and so I was concerned at how easily I'd be able to get them off, if I ever had a puncture and needed to use the jacking point. Look good, though....
