Update: Harbor Freight Recalls Replacement Jack Stands

For the third time in as many months, Harbor Freight is recalling Pittsburgh Jack Stands which could break and collapse due to a welding defect, according to The Drive. The recalled stands, Pittsburgh 3-Ton, 6-Ton, and 12-Ton Heavy Duty Steel Jack Stands, were intended to replace defective stands recalled in May 2020. Harbor Freight said that a small number of replacement stands have a welding defect that could allow the jack stand to split and collapse.

What’s the problem?

This recall affects about 454,000 Pittsburgh Automotive 6 Ton Heavy Duty Steel Jack Stands (part numbers 61196, 61197, 56371), according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The ratchet teeth on affected jack stands may not sufficiently engage the pawl to a
sufficient depth, possibly causing the stand to fail under load, NHTSA said. If the stand fails, the stand can suddenly drop, increasing the risk of injury to persons nearby or under the lifted vehicle.

Harbor Freight is notifying registered owners and stores will provide a gift card equal to the shelf price of the jack stands, free of charge. Owners are asked to discontinue use of the recalled jack stands immediately.
