appears to be a very good price

Lidl was doing a pair for under a tenner not a month ago. Folded up nice and small. I'd rather get this branded set though.

Would that mean their employee's commit Hari-Kuri if anyone is ever crushed to death due to a material defect?

Good deal - thanks for posting, I've ordered a set

are these better than Draper axle stands ?

Every Silverline tool I've bought (mainly from Toolstation) has broken or worn out really quickly.

I've had the Lidle stands for a couple of years and have had no problems.

Hmm - are axel stands the type of thing you want to 'cheap-out' on? lol

these are a quality stand - much better than folding ones - they are a tried and tested design and are sold at much greater prices elsewhere (see halfords)

they do look feeble, but all axle stands, no matter how good the quality, should always be used with a jack as a back up.

Nice little piece of advice... and very true

Or better advice, don't get under a car on a jack, always use axle stands.
A jack is more likely to fail. Trolley jacks unlikely to fall over but seals could leak and bottle jacks and scissor jacks more likely to slip or allow the car to fall off.

I too have had their stuff from Toolstation and there's no doubt at all that they're not one of the better brands but you cannot go wrong with a set of axle stands like these.

I think you misunderstood those 2 guys , what they are advising is that not only should you use the axle stands but to also have the trolley jack under the car as an extra precaution . They arent saying to just use the trolley jack because as you point out that would be foolish in the extreme.

I don't have silverline axle stands but I do have a set of "torque" foldable type stands that came in the B&Q combo deal a few months ago, they don't look the best but I 've had an estate sat on 2 of those and 2 halfords stands for a month with no issues.
So despite looking poor, they've stood the test of time. Literally.

These stands will do the trick and they don't have the annoying pin securing system.

I have a silverline trolley jack and it's been great, changed 2 engines with it's aid. (got that on offer at amazon too)
I also have a set of silverline drifts/punches and a box full of their impact wrench sockets and they're good for the money too.

And to whoever said these are too high for normal cars - what do you jack your car up with? It mustn't go very high.

So ... HOW high are these please ? (Total and collapsed...)

Thanks

According to one reviewer the minimum height is 300mm

I have ordered them this week (they have been this price for quite some time so I didn't actually consider posting this as a deal) and will report back when I get them.

Lidl, £8 for a pair, fold much smaller than these. That way I can have twice as many fail safes under my car

You get what you pay for. When it comes to your own safety, always buy the best you are able to afford. These are better than no stands and good price so hot for that. However, I have found silverline tools in general to be = to blackspur or Naerok. Screwdrivers & allen keys seemingly made of cheese, 1 use and that is it, rounded off. Would not touch these with a barge pole unless I valued my life at less than the price of a bottle of JD. Please don't take this the wrong way, just weigh it for youself and be safe..
