The first pair of these I had were black and yellow, so the "Pink color problem" didn't bother me. These work very well for what they are designed to do, and that is support a load (car,truck, bed frame?) on a hard surface. They have worked so well that I got another pair so I could support all four corners of a sports car at the same time. When on a level surface they provide an adequate anchor and I have never had one try to tip over. Adjusting the height is reasonably simple, and when the height is set correctly the locking handle is forced against the ratched bar so the added weight of a vehicle helps to lock it. Once the weight is removed they are very easy to unlock and colapse.
As mine sit outside most of the time a red one would fade to pink eventually anyway. I like them and would buy them even if they were completely pink.
I lost confidence in these the moment I examined them at home, and could've saved myself the return trip by doing it in the store.
How jack stands should work: Raising the ratchet release lever should require the upper piece (a.k.a. the saddle, pinkish red piece, telescoping part) to rise a bit before it can disengage and collapse. This means when the weight of the car is on it, that release lever's not going anywhere- you'd effectively have to lift half the car with your hand.
Testing these, the saddle didn't have to budge vertically when raising the release lever in order to disengage. I was able to put most of my weight on the saddle and still lift that release lever with no effort, at which point the stand would collapse. The slightest lateral shift of the lift arm is all it took. If there was a rise required, it was imperceptible, and because I hate returning purchases I sat there for a bit doing my darndest to percieve such a rise, convince myself these were functional jack stands.
For safety, those levers need to not work, period, when a car's on them. You shouldn't be able to make your jack stand collapse with freakish bad luck. A neighbor kid shouldn't be able to walk up and drop your car on you with a tug on a lever. I suggest that those of you with a set examine yours.
It pales next to the above, but having flat bases underneath the feet for a little more surface area would be nice; had I kept these they likely would have embedded themselves deeply in my cheaply paved driveway. Also I could care less about the "lift arms" being pinkish (they were), but the fact that this paint was crumbling to dust the second they touched the base didn't bode well for quality either.
Not the best , but I'm sure they'll get the job done. Much better than a stack of 2x4's, and a prayer! I value my life, much rather use these, than coming out from underneath looking like a pancake. They give you a lot of piece of mind! Easy to use and setup. I definitely would recommend them.
They seemed to have fixed the issue with the paint. New ones are definitely just as red as the pictures. Also I had no problem with the safety mechanism on the ratchet on mine. With the weight of the car on it there is no budging the ratchet lever. I took one star off because the pictures show welds on the outside and inside of the base but there are only welds on the inside of mine. The welds inside were smooth and pretty even although they didn't bother to clean off splatter. I will be getting a second set.

Well i bought two sets of these. For the last week i have been doing the brakes on my truck (all 4 corners in the air) for about 5 days with no problems. I cant complain. They work well. Seem well made.
The reviewer indicated they are affiliated with this product.
These were just what I needed to be able to work (oil change, rotate tires, brake work) on my SUV. Solid feel to them and look to be well made for the price. Would be nice if the box was able to store the jacks in a ready to use position instead of having to take them apart. Some people like to be able to store things in their original box (not a deal breaker just an idea) Only other issue is I wish I bought 2 pairs instead of one. Will buy another one when the price is right again....
