  • Jack Stands, aluminum, Harbor Freight

    I just bought a pair of Harbor Freight aluminum 3-ton jack stands, pn 91760. What are my prospects for continuing to participate in this forum after I crawl under my Studebaker with these holding it up?

    They are all aluminum except the U-shaped "lever" and look like a typical steel jack stand. The cashier asked if I wanted to pay extra for an extended warranty. I said, no, if they failed I probably wouldn't be around to collect.

      Whenever I put a car on jack stands, I shake the hell out of the car before getting under it.

        Well they already had a recall on jack stands but you probably already knew that....

          When using jack stands I use 6 x 6's as a fail safe.

              I'm a little queasy when Jack Stands, Aluminum, and Harbor Freight are used in the same sentence. BP
              We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

              Ayn Rand:
              "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

              G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                Yeah, good point! How about "jack stands, aluminum, Harbor Freight, and cinder blocks"?

                  I also shake the car and have back up jacks when on the driveway. I also have a 4 post lift - I feel very safe under it. Unfortunately, I use it for storage for two cars in the winter. I have had a Canadian tire jackstand fold up and drop the car on the rotor. Very scary…
