Heads up! Harbor Freight recalls 450,000 jack stands.

If you own any, check the part number ASAP so you can not be killed by a failed one dropping your Ollie on your head....

“due to worn tooling at the factory, the pawl that engages with the toothed height-adjustable part of the stand doesn't do so sufficiently to reliably lock it in place. A bump or a knock could cause the pawl to disengage, dropping the vehicle suddenly.”
