I have just come away with a set of these from my local Halfords and thought they were a good buy so thought I would share.
Did a search to make sure they are not already listed and came across expired deals that got a bit of heat so hopefully will be a good buy for some users. The quality seems decent enough and comparing them to a set of stands I have that uses a pin these seem much better as there is more scope for adjustment height.
The Halfords 3 Tonne Ratchet Axle Stands have an easy ratchet mechanism, which allows you to quickly adjust the height of the stands before lowering your car onto them. They have a durable welded steel construction with a safe working load of 1.5 tonne per stand.
