FYI - Harbor Freight Jack Stand Recall

Recommended Posts

If you own any Harbor Freight stands STOP using them and check the product number. 454,000 of them out there that may have the ability to collapse.

Does anyone know if the Big Red stands are suspicious also? Probably all made by the same factory overseas. Time to make this stuff in North America again

They are also sold under a variety of rebrands.

I wouldn't buy anything that is remotely safety related from Harbor Freight or Princess Auto. Made the mistake once (no one was hurt); but when that 3 ton chain hoist failed, it dropped a Chevy small block on the fender of a 69 Nova; it made a very costly mess.

Hey I'm not telling you where to buy stuff, just the messenger of where NOT to buy stuff or if you did to return it for replacement/refund. I don't imagine anything currently available from CTC is any better than PA or HF either, just a different colour paint.
