I've never tested them with weight and will only use them if the car is low enough so that if it does fall it only has an inch to fall onto the stands lowest setting. I just don't trust them so I use the pin jacks. We use the stands as the secondary safety measure, not the first.

(Also only once did we have the car supported on something other than the jack and in that case it was just the rear wheels which were being held up with another set of wheels)
