if you read carefully the jacks can malfunction if the user does not carefully verify the pawl on the jacks not correctly located the jacks are not breaking and failing its just posiable to set the jack stand up so the pawl is not fully inserted in the upright stand supports gear teath, so that it may not support the load safely
