  • Harbor Freight is recalling a portion of the three-ton jack stands which were used as replacements for a group of defective jack stands it recalled in May 2020.
  • In May, the company recalled 1.7 million of its three- and six-ton jack stands due to a heightened risk of them collapsing while under load.
  • The owner of any of the company's three-, six-, or 12-ton jack stands are asked to bring them to a Harbor Freight store for a cash refund or store credit.

 

 

The company recalled their three- and six-ton jack stands in May and is now recalling the three-ton jack stands that were replacements for the original recall.

 

After recalling 1.7 million of its three and six-ton Pittsburgh jack stands back in May, Harbor Freight has announced that a portion of the three-ton jack stands intended to replace those recalled earlier this year have also been recalled. The recalled replacement three-ton jack stands have a welding defect. Customers who have the affected jack stands—or any of the ones in the original recall—should stop using them immediately, according to a statement posted on Facebook from Harbor Freight.

The statement also says that the owner of any three, six, or 12-ton Pittsburgh jack stand from Harbor Freight can return them to a Harbor Freight store and receive a full cash refund or store credit. The jack stands involved in the original recall faced a heightened risk of collapsing under load.

“While we’ve dramatically grown our team of engineers and inspectors, and intensified our tests and inspections, I assure that the lessons learned from this will drive further improvement,” Eric Schmidt, the owner and founder of Harbor Freight, said in a statement. The original recall covered nearly 1.3 million of the three-ton stands built between 2012 and 2020, and 450,000 six-ton stands built between 2013 and 2019.
