I wonder how they fail exactly.

If the problem is with the vertical support breaking a tooth or the locking mechanism failing, the vertical support will just fall until it hits the concrete in which case the vehicle is still held a foot above the ground unless it slides off.

If the problem is with the leg supports, yeah you're screwed if one of those give way.

I have 2 of the 6 tons that are under recall. Most of the time I leave the floor jack underneath as well so I don't sweat too much.

And this is why I always keep the jack, jack stand & rims tires under there.

Single point of failure is asking for trouble.

If your job or your life depend on it, don't but harbor freight.

Same here. Lift jack, jack stands, and wheels under the frame just to be sure.

Kinda been my thoughts for years. I will use the HF air wrench to pull the tire off but not use their stuff to support the truck. The problem is finding dependable jack stands but I have two sets from the 80's so i am probably good
