I use HF stands, but still get nervous when under the car after reading about stands collapsing.
I now slide in a 2nd one near me while under the car.

I was reading a thread on another site about the subject. Don't know what brand it was.
I will have to look up that thread again.
I remember thinking at the time that maybe the "victim" overloaded the stands or that they were super cheap models.
I do remember reading they has cast iron uppers.
