I posted this first on Kappa Performance but it's too important not to post here as well.

These 3 and 6 ton jack stands can drop and if you are under there when it does you'll be pushing up Daisys. Take them back to the store if you have ones that are affected by the recall.

I will be paying close attention to the maker and the importer of these jack stands as I'm sure there are more "brands" that are affected. I have 2 sets of different sizes that I bought from a local Tractor Supply store and I'd be shocked if they weren't made in China. If I find any internet threads or articles regarding other brands from the same makers, they'll be posted here as soon as I learn anything.

Only 5% are suspected to have defects but better to be safe then sorry.

That means that 1 out of every 20 are more prone to fail . . .

Now if those were the odds of winning the lottery here in Michigan, I might buy a ticket. Odds of crushing my melon? No thanks! :)
