Have You Been Injured by a Defective Harbor Freight Tools / Pittsburgh Automotive Jack Stand?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) released a consumer advisory warning related to Harbor Freight Tools’ recall of more than 1.7 million defective 3-ton and 6-ton heavy-duty steel jack stands.

These so-called heavy-duty jack stands, which were sold under Harbor Freight Tools’ “Pittsburgh Automotive” brand, are unsafe to consumers as they are prone to collapse under normal loads.

As a result, numerous injuries have been reported and consumers have been asked to immediately discontinue use.

Harbor Freight Tools has a history of selling low quality and dangerous products, and its jack stands are no exception.

Fob James Law Firm is currently handling a case where a Harbor Freight Tools’ tire spoon broke in half while the user was changing a tire causing serious injuries.

A user on Reddit posted photos reflecting how shoddy the jack stands are—unbelievably, thin and narrow metal rivets are the only thing holding up the full weight of the vehicle.

Frankly, Harbor Freight Tools should have never sold these defective jack stands in the first place.
