Unstable Car Jack Sold at NAPA Auto Parts Recalled by ISS
An auto part from International Specialty Services (ISS) may put consumers in danger when changing a flat tire.
The company is recalling certain Evercraft jack stands, model 776-2000, sold by NAPA Auto Parts stores. During production, the welds may not have been properly located and, as a result, the jack stands may collapse during use.
If the jack stand collapses, the vehicle could fall, increasing the risk of injury to the individual working underneath it or people around it.
About 9,900 jacks are included in the recall.
ISS is working to identify customers who have purchased the product. NAPA stores will refund the full purchase price. The recall is expected to begin on March 25, 2016.
Owners with questions about the recall can contact ISS at (864) 660-8307.
