Recall Alert: Harbor Freight Jack Stands


Well-Known Member
Hazard Fraught Tools is recalling their 3 ton and 6 ton Jack stands, item numbers 56371, 61196, and 61197. Per the filings, the support pawl can be disengaged under shifting load resulting in collapse. I've got a few of these in my garage, and I'm sure that some of you do too because these things are ubiquitous. Check yours out and stay safe.

After my 1000 lb rated 4-wheel dolly split in half supporting the front end of basically just the frame, I will NEVER trust any of their tools for anything important.

With all their issues, I don't understand why people still flock to them. Cheap, fast, and convenient I guess.

And I love how the safety recall just lists serious injury as a possible result of using.

I have known two people who have died from a car falling off of stands. Please be safe and be smart. I use blocks of railroad tie and 6X6s. I don't allow jackstands in my shop.
