I thought the current requirement was for a locking pin for ratcheting jack stands. Maybe that is their reason.

Hmmm.... Consumer Affairs only rates them 2/5 from reviews they have received.

Sometimes their rebuilders have a bad run of parts. They figure on at least of few failures in order to get the best margin of return.
