Harbor Freight Tools is recalling more than 1.2 million Pittsburgh Automotive 3 Ton Heavy Duty Steel Jack Stands, part numbers 56371 and 61196.
The ratchet teeth on the jack stand lifting extension post may not engage the pawl to a sufficient depth, possibly causing the stand to fail under load.
This could pose a risk of injury to people near or under a lifted vehicle
What to do
Owners should immediately discontinue use of the jack stands for safety concerns.
Harbor Freight will notify owners, and stores will provide, in exchange for return of the jack stands, a gift card equal to the shelf price of the jack stands.
The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
Owners may contact Harbor Freight customer service at (800) 444-3353 or by email at Recalls@HarborFreight.com.
