Walmart Car Jack Recall
Walmart has issued a nationwide recall on nearly 14,000 Hyper Tough(r) 2-Ton Jack Stands due to a safety risk. The defective jack stands are unable to support the vehicle’s load and can collapse when lifted. When this happens, the vehicle can be crushed beneath the jack stands, posing a serious injury risk. The recalled jack stands can be identified by the part number and model number.
A jack with a 2 1/2-ton rating is sufficient for corner pickup, but a 3-ton model would be even better. Stands and speed pumps are available in some jack sets. These can raise and lower the vehicle quickly if there is not much load and slow down when it is loaded. Some jacks have four wheels while others only have two. It is important to note that some models are more durable and safer than others, so make sure you purchase the right jack for your needs.
