I've never seen a jack stand I'd trust with my life. nothing beats a few blocks of wood thrown under there just in case. even when I take a tire off a car I throw the wheel under the frame...call me paranoid

I've had some really poor tools from HF. I don't trust the quality of their products.

While I'm a proponent of using throw-away, cheap, HF tools, I would not crawl under a vehicle supported only by their jackstands. Anything involving life and death calls for using products designed to US safety standards, IMHO.

Just sold a pair of that exact stand after using them to support my 30 ft TT for suspension work. No problems with them, very heavy duty.

My preference has always been to buy American made. However I agree with he previous poster that the HF stands are probably made in the same Chinese factory that is now producing the American version. Sad but probably true.

I bought a pair of the HF 6 ton, heavy duty (per pair) jack stands.The main problem I had with them was that they are 15+" tall when at minimum. Have to raise the front end a long way to get them under the axle. The leveling jacks wont lift that far, so I returned them. Now to find a pair that start out much lower. The HF stands might work for the rear axle but I didn't try them there.

I have a pair of the HF 12t stands, and they seem to be very well built. I generally use them for "safety stands" after lifting with my HWH jacks.
