    Yes I do, though one of those in the ebay kit should fit.

    Do I need those circlip pliers or can they be placed by hand?

    You can install the new clip without the tool. But if you had the retaining tool you could remove one of the other cir clips and take it down to the hardware store and match it up.

    Had a chance to fit the snap ring on the wheel. The washer on the other wheel looked slightly different. Hope it holds. It seems like it needs some grease.

    Next week I'm planning on putting it to use when I take off the winter wheels.

    I highly recommend the MaxJax in the review. I have had mine for 3-4 years, it was life changing (seriously!). I also have (3) pairs of the ESCO stands, they are top notch also. I would never another jack stand. I had a pair similar to the Craftsman in which I encountered an incident, which led to the purchasing of the MaxJax.

    MaxJax is on my list for sure! Glad to hear you like it.

    Jack Stand Review!

    Harbor Freight Jack Stands Recalled for Risk of Collapsing.

    The Harbor Freight jack stands that we've all bought, borrowed or seen in our friends' garages are being recalled due to a risk of collapsing under load. Go check yours immediately.

    In a recall filed with the NHTSA on March 20 of this year, Harbor Freight explains that certain 6-ton jack stands have the potential to disengage their support pawl under shifting weight, causing the stand to drop suddenly. A second recall, filed May 3, extends the recall to 3-ton jack stands. The defect is attributed to aging tooling at the factory that produced the jack stands.

    The recall document says that the problem could affect more than 450,000 6-ton jack stands produced between 2013 and 2019 and nearly 1.3 million 3-ton jack stands produced between 2012 and 2020. These jack stands were sold under the Pittsburg brand name, and can be identified by item numbers 56371 or 61196 on 3-ton models, and 61197 on 6-ton models.

    Harbor Freight urges anybody in possession of affected jack stands to return them to the store in exchange for a gift card equal to the price of the stands. Any unsold jack stands covered by the recall have been removed from stores. Check on your buddies and spread the word around—these jack stands are ubiquitous, and a failure like this could be fatal.
