Harbor Freight Heavy Duty Steel Jack Stands
Harbor Freight has recalled several series of its Pittsburgh Jack Stands. In May of 2020, the company recalled 1.2 million Pittsburgh Automotive 3 Ton Heavy Duty Steel Jack Stands because the product’s ratchet teeth may not sufficiently engage the pall to a sufficient depth, potentially causing it to fail under load. This failure may cause a sudden drop, increasing the risk of injury to persons nearby or under any lifted vehicle.
The company replaced the stands with a different product. The new product is now subject to a different recall because many of the units are suffering from a welding defect. The July 2020 recall affects more than 450,000 Pittsburgh Automotive 6 Ton Heavy Duty Steel Jack Stands according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Owners are asked to discontinue use of the recalled jack stands immediately.
