Hey all - Saw this on another forum and passing the info on. It just might save a hospital visit or worse for someone.

Harbor Freight is recalling some of their 3 and 6 ton jackstands.

Please don't crawl under your car without checking the numbers.

Thanks for the heads up. I bought a pair 20 years ago but never trusted them and always had another jack with them holding the load. Seems that they were designed to hold up an axle and not a flat surface used on modern cars.

Good to hear. You are most welcome. Hope lots of people read this thread.

This is why we post stuff like this. Just a reminder, but you may be one of the (un)Lucky ones.

Much better way to find out. And you get a coupon for new ones.

bump.

Thinking about this. Maybe a sticky?

Two weeks from now this will be way out of view, but those jackstands will still be out there and someone who hasn't been on in a while won't see this warning.
