    I watched a video about these stands a year ago. The problem is the teeth that the pawl engages in is flat. So if you knock the release handle hard enough under a load it could release causing the stand to collapse. 11.PNG It's just not going to fail on its own without some outside help. Would I use them, no, I'm returning mine.

      The Johns Bargain Store of hardware.
      Believe it or not, their floor jacks are actually pretty good, I was shocked the first time I used one. We have a wide variety of jacks in the garage to choose from, and I have no problem using the Harbor Freight one.

        I guess my pair of 62393 6 Ton stands are still good to go

          I love the set I got from my dad that he bought back in the seventies when he opened his first shop. The layer of bondo dust alone can probably hold a ton.

                    I would not use any tools from harbor freight that if they fail may kill you.

                      China does not give a shit about quality or the safety of their products.
