I also have some pictures attached for you to see.
- 2/4 have a slight wobble when placed on a level surface, due to the fact that their base is slightly uneven. I can live with that.
- 1/4 had a locking pin that was too large for the opening. It looked like it was not formed properly at all, so it was not a "cosmetic" error that could be remedied with some brute force and/or a file.
- 3/4 feature various areas of chipped paint, etc. Since this is intended for heavy duty garage work, this is acceptable.
- 4/4 have welds that don't inspire much confidence - I was prepared for this based on the reviews. Despite sloppy welding, the construction still looks sturdy enough to be used for its intended purpose. I would not overload these, however. If you have a larger SUV or a truck, it might be best to buy a sturdier set.
At this price point it's hard not to compare these to the Harbor Freight 3 and 6 ton jack stands, which in my opinion are much sturdier. However, the HF stands don't have a double locking feature, and the top saddle is too deep to be used with jack points of many modern passenger vehicles.
I am returning the set with a defective pin, and hoping the replacement will not have any major safety issues. Amazon is great as always, and sending a replacement overnight, as well as scheduling a pickup for the defective set. I will update the review once I receive the replacement.
I received 2 replacement stands from Amazon. Surprisingly, this is the best pair out of the bunch - very stable (stands are even), and the locking pins work. It is remains to be seen how they will hold up during regular use.
One was actually quite good, complete welds, melted nicely into the steel.
However the other stand has a sketchy weld, it looks like a bead of wire just on top of the metal.
I decided on Torin before I decided on these jack stands. Torin is a good quality name that has a good reputation (at least in my circle of friends), so choosing them was a no brainer. The difficult part was to buy the right ones.
I drive a smaller car, a Nissan 350Z, so I was going to pull the trigger on these 2-ton stands you're reading my review about ( Torin T42002A 2 Ton Double Locking Jack Stands (Sold in Pairs) ). HOWEVER after additional thought, I decided on the 3 tons of the same style ( Torin T43002A 3 Ton Double Locking Jack Stands (Sold in Pairs) ) because my fiance drives an SUV and her car is over 2-tons. I didn't want to die by getting crushed with weaker rated stands. What's somewhat humorous to me is that as of 4/18/2012, the 2-ton DOUBLE-LOCKING stands are $25.25 on Amazon, yet the 3-ton DOUBLE-LOCKING stands are only $24.99. So for 26 cents LESS, you get stands rated at an additional ton each. What's even more weird is that the Torin 3-ton stands NON-DOUBLE LOCKING Torin T43002 3 Ton Jack Stands (Sold in Pairs) are $29.99!!! It was a no brainer which is the best buy!
As for the quality, the welds seem very good and the construction is top notch. I chose this model because it's double-locking.Read more ›

Poor welds, the welds were sloppy with too many issues. Small for 3 ton jacks and poorly constructed. Will use for small projects but nothing more.Published 2 days ago by Jada Weed
As expected, these jack stands have bad welds. One of mine was decent, but the other was not. Was actually an Amazon Warehouse like-new purchase, so obviously someone else returned... Read morePublished 6 days ago by Braden
