What’s the Problem?

This NHTSA recall began in September 2020 and affects Walmart Hyper Tough 2 Ton Jack Stands, model 2TJS, sold under part number 0085001232400.

Walmart issued the recall after it was found that the jack stands may not be able to support the rated load without collapsing unexpectedly. A sudden drop of the jack stand can increase the risk of injury to persons nearby or under the lifted vehicle, according to the NHTSA.

If you purchased a jack stand that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and return it to Walmart for a full refund.

Car Jack Stand Failures Injure Nearly 5,000 People Annually: NHTSA

The NHTSA estimates that over 4,800 people in the U.S. receive emergency medical treatment each year in connection with car jack and jack stand failures. While most victims are treated and released, approximately 4% require extended hospitalization.

About 40% of victims are injured while using a jack stand to lift a vehicle for repair, while 16% are hurt while changing a tire, NHTSA said. Approximately 75% of injuries occur when the car or jack slips or falls out of position, and 18% result from the loss of pressure in the jack.
