Harbor Freight Jack Stand Recall

Recommended Posts

Several model numbers are being recalled because they can unexpectedly collapse (not a good thing in a jack stand). image.png.06992752e5d8d7831c8cebf407793c7f.png Here's a link with all the info you'll need: https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/harbor-freight-recall-jackstands-collapse/?ServiceType=facebook_page&TheTime=2020-05-19T23%3A00%3A12&UniqueID=7EC4748E-9A24-11EA-8E3A-80CAC28169F1&ftag=COS-05-10aaa0a&PostType=link&fbclid=IwAR16iajXdOMeKQPrNjEvEkVtP7YDiMqXeCHO5pZf0ihMnyIUCumQ0eQwAYY

Most of this style jack stands are made in China and sold in the US under many different labels, so I would suggest that anyone using ones that look similar to the Pittsburgh ones, also inspect the welds carefully.


I have seen a few with very poor welds and a friend of mine returned his based on poor welds.

I go to HF occasionally. It's a good source for some.items, but I'd never crawl under a car supported by Chinese jack stands. I'd also throw coil spring compressors in the same category.
