I dont believe this is a quality control issue.. Looks more like a design issue.

Well I took my two sets back today. They issued me a gift card for the amount of to new sets. I didn't buy another set because 3 ton jacks are not too useful on a pickup.

Their 6-tons go up pretty high

Harbor Freight is recalling over 1.7 million Pittsburgh-branded jack stands that can suddenly collapse due to a manufacturing flaw
Always have a backup. Don't trust only a jack stand. China made or not, they can fail, sink into soft ground, tip over when you're wrenching hard, etc. Stuff a wheel under the frame to catch the vehicle when it falls.

Mine look identical but are 6232 on the end of the PID number. Apparently these were made in a different factory. I called HF customer service and they said that there are 3 factories that MFG all their stands and only one factory was affected by their tooling issue.

Took mine back - took gift card for future use for non-safety related stuff. Ordered new 6 ton jack stands with locking pin in addition to pall catch. Maybe better Chinese jack stands - could not find USA made ones.
