So sad 😞 we’re all guilty of not using stands at one point in our life but it shows it dose only take that one time and that bad judgment and it can all go horribly wrongApril 26, 2018 at 9:32 pm #157161
I agree with the previous comment. We have all done it , though with a weather eye on what would happen if the jack slipped. I personally own two trolley jacks. Both by the same manufacturer.

The latter has certainly taught me to use axle stands, no matter what or how quick the job is.
