Harbor Freight Issues Another Recall For Defective Jack Stands
Owners of Harbor Freight candles should take note. After the company issued a recall in May for a selection of its 3 and 6 ton Pittsburgh Automotive steel candles, offering other Pittsburgh brand stands as a safe alternative, the retailer had to issue a voluntary recall, this time to these replacement media. The company posted a message from the owner and founder of the company, Eric Smidt, apologizing to customers about the problem.
The company discovered a manufacturing defect with a small number of 3-ton Pittsburgh replacement candles. Smidt writes: “This defect was not discovered during the initial recall investigation.” Harbor Freight has since investigated all of its 3, 6 and 12 ton steel jack supports and says it has found no more faults. However, the company does offer anyone who owns and has concerns about these outlets the opportunity to return them for a full cash refund or store credit.
“Your confidence is very important to me, and I am proud of the progress we have made. So when we have a product recall, it hurts,” Smidt writes in his apologies, adding that he feels “disappointed and embarrassed” at About the identification of the other defect. The Harbor Freight website has a list of affected candles and their article numbers. Additional information is provided in the company tweet below.
Those looking for a cash refund will receive $ 24.99, $ 49.99 and $ 119.99 for the 3, 6 and 12 ton racks. This increases to $ 29.99, $ 59.99 and $ 143.99 if homeowners choose to receive store credit instead. The company will also reimburse all applicable sales taxes.
Quality candles are important pieces of equipment that make working under cars a safe experience. Failure to do so could result in disaster for the operator, possibly resulting in injury or even death when the vehicle crashes on the sidewalk. Affected customers can return their candles to their local Harbor Freight store.
