Harbor Freight Jack Stand Recall

There are new recalls for some fairly common Pittsburgh jack stands sold by Harbor Freight -

Check your garage - I found 4 of them in my shop.

Thanks for the tip.
I have two HF 6 ton stands in the garage. I'll check tomorrow.
HF will make good on them.

For certain units, the ratchet teeth on the jack stand lifting extension post may inconsistently engage the pawl to a sufficient depth.

I like harbor freight IMHO
But I’ll admit this is good to know, and scary thanks for passing on the information I have a 345 motorhome I have harbor freight 12 ton jackstands, and if I am working near or under the motorhome I try to make sure that the hydraulic bottle jack and maybe even some wood blocking is underneath this beast
Stay safe everyone!
