If you buy jackstands from them you get what you have coming. 

I use them on the teardrop. :D


But only while I'm building it. The first thing I'm gonna do when the damn thing is finished is get a decent set of scissor jacks I can mount permanently to the frame of the trailer. Those HF jacks our junk.

FYI - Harbor Freight is recalling 3 and 6 ton jack stands with model numbers  56371, 61196 and 61197 - seems they might not lock into place:"A bump or a knock could cause the pawl to disengage, dropping the vehicle suddenly."

Unless they buckle on their own or the recall extends for the next few decades, you should be good.
