Went to return the ones I had. Got $20 gift card. Could have sworn I paid more than that but oh well. The store I went to (the only one in the area) was all out of jack stands :frown:
Which ones did you return? I returned 4 6-ton models (61197) today and got an $85 card.

Makes me gland I spent the money on a good set of stands recently. Harbor freight stuff has its uses. Trusting them to support a 2 ton chunk of steel a few inches above my head is not one of them.

Not yet, as I just got them.

If you're wondering about size, they are not that much taller than a regular 3 ton jack. The minimum height is 13.5" but is much wider at the base and thicker beam.

Turned mine in today, and picked up some "weight reduction" for the trunk.

I checked mine yesterday. I have Craftsman ones. I tried using them while building one of those wooden playset/swingset things yesterday. Junk. They had a hard time staying at the right height. Glad I wasn't underneath something with those.

Definitely going to be looking into something else. But now I have to rebuild the deck .....

Swapped out my recalled units at Harbor freight the other day they simply just gave you the new pair no questions asked was super simple no receipt required if you haven’t swapped yours out yet do it ...

Oof, glad I used my trade-in toward an extra jack instead. Used it, and my home built wheel stands, just this afternoon.
