1. A jack assembly comprising:
a member;
a gear mechanism;
a handle operatively engaged with the gear mechanism, the handle rotatable relative to the member; and
a handle assembly clip attached with the handle, wherein the handle assembly clip selectively engages the member, whereby the handle assembly clip generally prevents the handle from rotating relative to the member while the handle remains in an operative position;
wherein the handle assembly clip comprises a lead-in member that upon application of a rotational force to the handle releases the handle assembly clip from engagement with the member.
