I think I have a set that has a similar problem with the pawl.
Thanks for finding and posting what the problem real was. So much better to actually see what was wrong instead of just a recall message from the company not really explaining that the really messed up the quality control.
This video shows why they're a problem. The teeth on the recalled units are extremely bad.
I have the old orange and whites also. But at least seeing the videos above I can check them thoroughly and understand the fault.Is there a date period for these? I have 5 six ton jackstands (one destroyed in a hurricane) . The labels are long gone but the stands are orange and white. I have an email into Harbor Fright right now so hopefully, can get a response. With that said, I'm picking up a Hein Werner floor jack tomorrow. Needs rebuilt, $35. My collection of made in USA floor jacks is growing.
