    Default Harbor Freight tools that DO suck

    Well there is a thread talking about harbor freight tools that dont suck, but I think there needs to be a thread that is all about the worst of the harbor freight tools, the ones that are unsafe, dont work, or you just would never buy again. Also, feel free to add tools from princess auto, the harbor freight of canada
    Never carry gasoline in your car trunk. If you do, atleast use some sort of container.

    Import rubber from Mainland China especially the grades that get used in harbor freight products. (Lets say I'm cheap, but life is too precious to buy Chinese tires.)

    Bungee cords etc, are not worth the plastic packaging they come in or the oil that they came from.

    That orange plastic creeper they have is a throw away item for sure. The (same) issue I have is the plastic won't support the wheel/plate at the attachment point. If you get them on the $18 sale, there's not much room to complain, but at the $35 (ish) regular price, pass. You will be tossing it even only doing oil changes on a few vehicles in under a year.

    Fabric velcro cable ties. The velcro is sewn to the other piece, and the thread holding them together breaks and you're left with 2 pieces disconnected.

    7 in. Hook & Loop Cable Ties 2 Pk.

    I agree, I asked my fellow right wing garage guy to get me a price on studded tires last fall. He says $120 for Hankooks... I said Chinese tires? Seriously? No, get me North American tires for another 20%.

    I'm not subscribing but when I asked if they were Chinese, he said yes, so I passed.
