Cool idea, if those internal safety locks work unfailingly.

Push the idea there, and here, and ask about a group buy. The price is always an issue, but like anything, make and effort to create an incentive, and who knows. I'm interested.

Give this a shot. I think the exclamation point in the subject line which becomes part of the URL throws some browsers off. I clicked on this one in "preview post" and it worked for me. You'll have to go to Page 2, Post #28

Hi,
 
I am currently out of stock until mid-February. The price for a pair (2 stands) is $265.00, shipping is not included. A zip code is needed to quote the shipping. If you’re interested in placing an order, send me your billing/shipping information. I will then email a paypal invoice that is payable with most any major credit card, or you may send a check by mail. The order will be shipped after payment is received.
 
 
∙  Lift Stands are made of 12ga. steel and have a black durable powder coat finish.
∙  A lift stand dimensions are 12”wd. x 18”lg. x 8"high. The extended height is 14 inches.
∙  The inside section of the top tire pan is 11"x11"x 1.5" deep.
∙  The locking pins are spring loaded, and made with .375 inch stainless steel.
∙  One stand weighs 35 lbs. with a maximum load rating of 2000 lbs.
∙  Four stands will support an 8,000 lbs. vehicle.
∙  Any floor jack that is less than 12 inches wide can be used.
∙  Warranty is 1 year on product to be free from physical defects in material and workmanship.

Sounds like this guy needs to go on that Shark Tank show before Harbor Freight comes up with the China version.

They are sweet but 530+shipping for a set of 4 jack stands is rough.  Not to mention there limited use.  No brake,  suspension work.  I was thinking you could at least use it for transmission swaps but you couldn't rotate the drive shaft to get the bolts out.  You'll have trouble putting a cat back in with the suspension loaded.  Considering that they seem more of a novelty unless I'm missing something.

Yes, unfortunately that is very likely. China does not honor patents or ideas of any kind, over there intellectual theft is normal.

Price is ridiculous.

Too many steps involved to make it really something I would pay top dollar for.

In order for him to be out of stock. ..He either only made one prototype or practically gave the other sets away to get his name out there.

Its not necessarily the steps. ( the way he did it was ridiculous no reason you can't do front and back on most vehicles not tire by tire) but your still limited as to what you can do while its on the stands. I feel like in the case when I use jackstands they couldn't be used 75% of the time.  I could see them good for someone to do subframe connectors, but if your a shop doing that many of them you should invest in a 4 post lift.
