    Any mechanical or hydraulic lift can fail, Id suggest use of a couple of the less expensive 6 ton rated jack stands be used under the car frame once the cars raised up on the lift as an additional level of cheap but potentially vital security, and yes I'm well aware the safety bar and ratchet in theory prevents the lift from un-intentionally dropping

    spending less than $70 on sale, for 4 6 ton jack stands that will insure the car stays up if the lift were to fail, is a damn cheap price to insure you don,t find out the hard way about mechanical device failures
