This is a bottle jack. Unlike other "jacks", it is designed to fit different jobs that conventional jacks can not.
When I mentioned conventional jacks, I mean bumper jacks, scissor jacks, hydraulic rolling floor jacks that you see in many professional garages, and so on. Bottle jacks have to be used with great caution because the load that they are designed to carry is supported only downward, compacted to a very small base, and not distributing their load like other jacks. Extreme caution must be used with operating a bottle jack with a car, truck, trailer or other loads.
However, to answer your question directly, the top screw to the jacks piston IS ONLY used for first get a "fit" to the object being lifted. So, place the jack under what is to be lifted, then turn the piston so the top comes in contact. Then connect the pipes provided - they will be the handle to "pump" the jack once the pipes are connected at the round ends of each pipe.
Note: That flattened end is designed to fit into a squared bolt/nipple at the bottom left pump. Just make sure that squared bolt/nipple is tightened by taking the flattened end of the pipe and placing it on the bolt/nipple and turning clockwise. To lower the jack, simply turn the bolt counterclockwise.
This bottle jack comes with instructions, and they're pretty straight forward.
I've included a picture and some basic instructions for you. But these instructions, along with my comments here, are NOT to subordinate the instructions that come with the bottle jack or its intended use.

I bought one of these never used it until months later and after just jacking a boat up it goes back down shortly after . I've never had this issue to a jack . I cant find my papers to it and the store can't help me . It jacks up but don't hold up to any weight. Anyone have this issue I have a expensive weight as it works not as a jack to hold anything up .

Answer: 
Here's what I done with bottle jacks.
(1) unscrew the nut/nipple under the pump with a few turns.
(2) pump the handle about five (5) or (6) times.
(3) tighten the nut/nipple under the pump firmly
(4) now try your bottle jack, it should hold.
If this fails, try again, only this time pump the handle more ... about ten, fifteen times. Then tighten the nut/nipple and see if that holds.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great works great just the right size in the back of the car or truck June 21, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 6 ton jack that just keeps leaking Leaky. Have now bought 3 of these and have had the same problem with each one. Very, very leaky. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointment - Seal failure I purchased this bottle jack as a replacement to a scissor jack that had been stolen from my vehicle. I played with the jack the next day and it seemed to work well, the relief valve was a little hard to open by hand and tighten by hand, but it did work well (and I wasn't going to complain given the price which seemed like a good value). In the middle of winter, after a heavy snow storm, I got a flat tire on a CR-V. I began to jack up the car to swap the flat with the spare, after raising the vehicle about 6 inches the hydraulic fluid began coming out of the cylinder and the jack failed. I borrowed a 20 year old factory ford bottle jack from a family member and that worked fine - very disappointed in this purchase and can't recommend this product to anyone. If I was in the middle of nowhere and relying on this product I would have been more upset than I already was. January 14, 2015

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good, strong little jack Used a pair of these to do some foundation repairs, worked very well. Was a little wary of the handle assembly, as it is a two piece handle, but it worked just fine; just use the small end of the handle to tighten or loosen the pressure bolt and no problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Jack! I purchased this jack as a replacement to the OEM jack that came with my 1996 Ford Explorer. The jack works very well, fits in the factory storage location, and is of quality manufacture! Overall I am very pleased with my purchase!!! July 1, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good little jack; valve needs more than hand tightening This is a handly little jack. To use it, you have to close a relief valve using a small metal tab meant to be hand-tightened. It's hard to tighten it enough by hand, and if it's not closed tightly enough, the cylinder slowly drops under the weight of what you're lifting. But it can be tightened enough by using a wrench.
