Exactly what I got once I realized I was way too old and relatively smart to be getting underneath cheapass stands. Pointed toward them by Sigforum of course.

$99 at AMZN

I've used 4 Harbor freight jack stands for over 10 years, never had a problem with them.

I ensure they are locked in when i let the jack down and give the whole vehicle a few good shoves to make sure its stable and then recheck the stands.

It's unfortunate that these stands failed.

There is nothing more permanent than a temporary solution that works.

I do not shop Harbor Freight or WalMart if another viable alternative exists.

Cheap tools aren’t good. Good tools aren’t cheap.

That’s true of everything in life. Just change the word in my above statement.

Thanks for the heads up. I have some very similar Harbor Freight stands but not part of the recall.

And once again, trusty SIGforum has caused me to spend money on quality stuff I should have.


...that I will support
