Default Chinese Jack Stands - massive recall

Massive recall of Chinese jack stands. "manufactured by Jiaxing Golden Roc Tools Co., Ltd (exported by Shanghai Shen Da Import and Export Co Ltd.)".

Harbor Freight is one of the US retailers of these defective products.

Reportedly this is due to either worn molds or potentially poorly "copied" molds.

STOP USING YOUR JACK STANDS NOW and determine if they were recalled. Then buy some higher quality stands.

Returned a couple of sets of mine a month ago. Humm.. I used those very same jack stands when I did the exhaust on my XE last year. Comforting thought. I now hear they even recalled the replacements for the originally recalled ones.

My HF jack stands are not part of the recall. Maybe that's the reason why I'm still alive.
