Is there a way to keep Jack in a moving vehicle?

Is there a way to make jack stay with a moving surface, whether a vehicle or something else.

 

I am trying to get Jack to stay in various pieces of construction equipment that has kinematics for a technomatix demonstration.  Thus far I have had no luck.

Jack doesn't have and connection to the scissor lift.  I tried having him grasp the hand rail (hence his rediculous pose).  Everything that moves seems to leave jack behind.  I've tried cherry pickers, scissor lifts, forklifts etc.  No setting I have found so far lets me get Jack to stay on and move with the object.

 

Is there a way to define surfaces as solid to jack and have him move with them when they move?

Hi,

 

For this scenario you may try to simply attach Jack to a moving part of the device.

That is, do not attach jack to the "root" of the device but rather one of the moving child links representing the "floor" he is to stand on.

Let me know if it helps, best regards,
