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.

Answer: 
I went to the garage and tested this same jack horizontally. However, it begins to leak a bit more than usual from the piston area when under pressure. I would have to say, for this application, this jack is not recommended .

6-Ton Bottle Jack is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 14.

Although small in size, I used this jack with appropriate care, along with another one at the opposite corner, to lift my 16 x 12 ft backyard shed approximately 4 inches. The shed had settled badly along the back wall and by using these jacks I was able to lift and level the building without a hitch. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all purpose jack The jack works fine, but the handle wasn't made properly. The two pieces are suposed to lock together, so I put the pieces together and tack welded them to make one handle. If you don't weld or know someone that does, you can put them together, drill and put a bolt through them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great deal Needed a jack and this fit the bill perfectly. The cost, utility and ease of use was perfect for my needs. Though this was a one time situation I was so pleased with this jack that I am now thinking of other uses and happy I made this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Using jack in tight areas Restoring an old house, using this jack (and others) to lift parts of the foundation while putting in permanent supports. Physical size is convenient, good lifting power, unit does seep a little hydraulic fluid from plug in back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
