I checked today and mine are on the recall list. Away they go. I also try to use the jack as a backup whenever the stands are there.

Hi Everyone And @PokerGuy
Glad you reposted this .
Ive been using the old style stands like @Stlhotrod posted for years always leaving the Jack as a back up .
I decided last year to buy a new set and yeah they are the recall ones listed.
So now I’ll be on the hunt for a new set.
I hope everyone sees this Recall and stays safe ! Dave

Keep an eye out for auctions for repair shops closing up. I got some really nice heavy duty jack stands at an auction for $10 each. I bought 6 of them.

Just curious . . . were these Jack Stands made in China?

! :cool: ! :mad: ! :cool: ! :mad: ! :cool: !
!!!Try to find some new ones that arent!!!!😖😖
I looked at a Delco 3 ton jack at O'reillys a while back. It was made in China
Even many of the SnapOn and SK professional tools are made in China.
Hard to find any tools made in the USA anymore.

Hopefully that will change in the next few years if we learned anything.

Sadly, most Americans aren't willing to pay the extra $$ for "made in America". Cheap Chinese crap rules. I know I've been guilty. But I promise to buy American going forward.

Don't have any of those.... I know my big red ones I got off Amazon. But I always use the safety pin to secure the post into the base. And because my driveway is slightly inclined, wheel chocks ARE A MUST! Doesn't matter what I'm doing. If a jack is going under, a chock goes under a wheel first, especially if jacking up the rear --- because then you have NOTHING restraining the vehicle!
Refer to my post above. The MG was up on four jackstands. No tires or wheels. Driveway was slightly sloped. No one was near the car when it fell. I can only guess a gust of wind knocked it over.
