    RECALL HF 3-6 ton jack stands


    published on 03/31/2020Harbor Freight recalls Pittsburgh Automotive 6 Ton Heavy Duty Steel Jack Stands

    The jack stands may fail



    James LimbachReporter


    Photo source: Harbor FreightHarbor Freight Tools is recalling 454,000 Pittsburgh Automotive 6 Ton Heavy Duty Steel Jack Stands, part number 61197.



    The ratchet teeth on the jack stands may not sufficiently engage the pawl to a sufficient depth, possibly causing the stand to fail under load.

    If the stand fails, it can suddenly drop, increasing the risk of injury to anyone nearby or under the lifted vehicle.
    What to do


    Harbor Freight will notify owners, and dealers will provide a gift card equal to the shelf price of the jack stands free of charge.

    The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Harbor Freight customer service at (800) 444-3353.

          yeah, no doubt. I have 3 different varieties of small jackstands from different vendors. All seem to be Chinesium.

                This. Pretty sure 95% of them are all the same regardless of where you bought them... I have a set of 4 blue and yellow ones from a Cummins tool sale (traveling tool sale) that I've been using for ever now. I guarantee they're the same design too.
