Harbor Freight Company founder Eric Smidt announced the company had discovered a new welding defect in its three-ton jack stands significant enough to warrant a voluntary safety recall. These jack stands that are subject to the latest recall were supposed to be the safe alternatives to the faulty, previously recalled jack stands.
In May, Harbor Freight issued a recall of 454,000 jack stands manufactured between 2013 and 2019 over fears that the products could collapse and cause serious injury or death.
Nearly two months after the original recall, it became clear that a new problem was present and that it affected even more jack stands sold by Harbor Freight.
Harbor Freight said that it had “identified a welding defect” in some of its three-ton Pittsburgh-branded jack stands and have since added the units to its recall. Engineers also investigated other jack stands that it sells and were not able to identify any defects, however as a precautionary measure, the retailer is offering to exchange any of its jack stands for customers who have safety concerns.
Customers should check the item number on their jack stands and use the Harbor Freight website to verify that their product is included on the recall.
Depending on the specific model, customers can exchange the units for a cash refund between $24.99 and $11.99, or store credit of $29.99 and $143.99.
