Harbor Freight Customer’s Replacement Jack Stands are Also Faulty

Harbor Freight jack stands were subject to a massive recall earlier in the year. The recall applied to a total of 454,000 jack stands made between 2013 and 2019. Unfortunately, the replacements for these products may be defective as well.

Mike Galli was using the replacements he got for his recalled Harbor Freight jack stands to do some maintenance work on his Volkswagen Golf. When the full weight of the car was lowered onto the stands, he heard a loud pop from one of the bases of the jack stands splitting apart.

“Not too sure how a three-ton jack stand can’t handle the weight of a Volkswagen Golf,” Galli said. “It was the first time using them as well after having swapped the previous recalled ones out.”

The stand failed right at the weld holding the metal that was used for the base together. A couple of commenters on a social media post mentioned having similar issues as seen from Galli’s photos.

Harbor Freight is investigating the current issue with the replacement jack stands. The company issued the following statement:

“At Harbor Freight, the safety and well-being of our customers is of primary importance, as is the quality of our products. We take these matters very seriously and have already reached out to the customer to gather more information so that we may investigate this issue in depth.”
