No, I heard they lie all the time.

Well worth having at this price, the amount of times i end up looking for a high kerb so i can get to the exhaust, i never need worry again! Thanks.
#6
presumably they are legitimately rated therefore adequate to do 'what it says on the box'.

i bought a set that look identical to these from lidl, they are fine. good price as venturing under a car with just a jack is a mugs game

Indeed. A death wish. A jack seal is much more likely to let go than a welded axle stand. I jack my car up, get the axle stand under it then lower the jack carefully onto the axle stand then lock the jack off again and you'r covered by both the jack and the axle stand. Just make sure that the car doesn't have far to fall onto the axle stand if the jack fails.

The ratcheting type ones are best but these are fine for most people and will get the job done safely if used in the correct locations.

I got the ratchet type ones and they are excellent. However at these price you cant go wrong.

You probably meant to say this but the car should be fully supported by the stands and have no drop onto them :thumbsup:

Same. These always come in handy when I'm having to do vehicle repairs. Ideally, nice to use them plus a jack. :thumbsup:

Out Of Stock.

Good job all who got in early enough.

just think of all the annoying t*~ts that will now be trying to fix their cars where they live, blocking the roads up, buying more clapped out cars to do up thus blocking up more of the road! lol sorry just got a couple of people like that near where i live and they are a pain in the ****!
#16
Does anyone know if these are the same price instore?

Are they getting in your way? Damaging your property? Causing excessive noise? Or are they just an eye sore to your lovely eyes as someone who buys new cars, and pays over the odds for a garage to do any work? (I.e. you're a snob).
#18
no idiot, blocking the road up that all!!

Awww your precious road that you own. A car on axle stands obviously makes it take the space of three parked cars and blocks the road up so you can never get past.
#20
Voted hot, bargain price, any instore does anyone know?

I think its actually illegal to work on a car on the road, but then some people don't care any way, just remember to pour any old anti freeze or engine oil straight down the drain! The oil stops the drain grate from going rusty and the anti-freeze stops any rainwater from freezing and causing damage to the drainage system, so everyones happy:thumbsup:

I bought these last week, thought it was a really good price and they are very good.
#22
Can these be used as jack stands too? i.e. put them under the jacking points?

Police state otherwise:

https://www.askthe.police.uk/content/Q621.htm

You cannot repair vehicles on a road if,

it is during the course of a business
it is for gain or reward
it causes annoyance to people in the vicinity
The only exception is that if the repairs are carried out following an accident or break down where it was necessary to do the repairs on the spot or within 72 hours.

There are times when I wish it was possible to add "un-rep"!
#25
One other thing to remember. Make sure the car you are working on is level. I was once working on a car (old Citrroen Club with hydro suspension) but hadn't realised it was ever so slightly off the level. After 5 minutes of being under the car I heard the tiniest of noises. A second later the car was falling to one side with me under it. Thankfully I was already on my way out or I would have had the full weight of the front of the car on my chest and wouldn't be here now to give this warning.

It is illegal to do *major* repair work on the road. I do not know how they define the word major, but I wouldn't want to do anything more involved than a headgasket change out on the road. Lifting out the engine, changing the clutch etc I'd definitely want to avoid - even though I have seen people do this on the road.

Tipping oil down the drain is illegal. You should have a recycling facility not far with a big can to tip your old oil in where it's recycled:thumbsup:. Then again if you change your oil you should already know this.

Have you got a reference to anywhere stating it is illegal to do "major" repair work on the road? The only actual reference I found was the one I posted above stating otherwise.

http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/HomeAndCommunity/SocialHousingAndCareHomes/CouncilRentAndOtherCharges/DG_10026082

you must not do major car repairs. Or sell two or more vehicles or park an unroadworthy vehicle or one which may not legally be driven on the highway, on the land around your home or on the road


So probably not "illegal" as such.

That's information specific to council estates, though.

I thought all roads were the responsibility of the council. Also Council houses can be purchased and private. So I don't see why there'd be any different rules.
#31
No, certainly not all roads, some are highway agency controlled etc. Regardless, that link is specific to Council Estates and therefore one would assume it is slightly different in how it is managed to non-Council estate areas. I would guess, without actually knowing, that there is some different controls that the Council retains over Council estate roads.

Why is this expired?


Went into my local Wickes store today and picked some up.

(Also bought a rechargeable cordless wet and dry vac for £3.73!)

No....the AA etc would be in real trouble if it was.

You *could* be sued if you left the car in an unsafe condition and it injured someone.

This should be unexpired as it is available instore.

Then they'd be a retard for touching your property and liable to prosecution for criminal damage.

The only way I can imagine a car injuring someone is if it goes up in flames and explodes, or the handbrake comes off and it rolls. Everything else would mean the person was interfering with the car.

What would happen then if I'd just driven my car on a long journey. Some kids lose a football under the car and the football is near the catalytic converter. Now if these kids have clueless parents who don't tell them going underneath a car is dangerous, they could easily go under your car for the football and cause serious burns to their hands and arms. Why would that be the owner of the car's fault, when all cat converters get hot?! All it takes is a bit of common sense from the kids parents and the burns would have been prevented.

Common sense dictates you don't touch or interfere with other people's property, especially if it's on axle stands in the road.
