    Harbor Freight Recall! One Stop Gardens Propane Heaters FIRE HAZARD (63073, 63072)

    Harbor Freight recently recalled 350,000 One Stop Gardens propane heaters because they are a fire hazard! If you own either of the 15,000 or 30,000 BTU tank top heaters you can return them for a refund at Harbor Freight. The refund will be in the form of a gift card. Harbor Freight is supposed to be contacting known buyers of this item. Below is the recall information from the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

    Name of product:
    One Stop Gardens 15,000 and 30,000 BTU Tank Top Propane Heaters
    Hazard:
    In windy weather, the flame can be directed to the rear of the unit, which can melt the “tip switch” safety shut off feature at the rear of the heater. This poses a risk that the heater will not turn off if it tips over and poses a burn hazard to consumers.

    Remedy:
    Refund
    Recall date:
    July 21, 2021
    Units:
    About 350,000


    Description:
    This recall involves the One Stop Gardens 15,000 BTU Tank Top Propane Heater (Item #63073) and the One Stop Gardens 30,000 BTU Tank Top Propane Heater (Item #63072). The heaters are designed to mount on top of a standard 20 lb. propane tank, and have an “easy start” with variable heat control valve, high efficiency heat reflector, and safety shutoff.

    Remedy:
    Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled tank top propane heaters and return them to their local Harbor Freight Tools store for a full refund of the purchase price, plus applicable tax, in the form of a Harbor Freight Tools gift card. Harbor Freight Tools is contacting all known purchasers directly.

    Incidents/Injuries:
    The firm has received reports of nine incidents of flame redirection to the rear of the heater and/or the tip switch safety feature melting. Three of these incidents resulted in minor burn injuries when the consumers attempted to turn off the unit.

    Sold At:
    Harbor Freight Tools stores nationwide and online at www.harborfreight.com from December 2015 through April 2021 for about $45 for the 15,000 BTU model and about $75 for the 30,000 BTU model.

    Recall number:
    21-168

    Harbor Freight: Memorial Day Parking Lot Sale!


    Harbor Freight just released their Memorial Day Parking Lot Sale ad for 2021! This sale starts on May 24th for Inside Track Club members and starts on May 28th for everyone else. The sale ends for everyone on May 31st. In the past parking lot sales were always a 4 page ad. This time it is a huge 10 page ad. This is probably largely because in the past they have always had coupons to go along with the sales and they have since gotten rid of all the coupons.

    CLICK HERE TO SEE THE FULL 10 PAGE AD


    Also be sure to take a look at the current Instant Savings page. The deals on that page are currently good through 5/27 and you will notice several of the items overlap with parking lot sale items so you may not have to wait to pick them up. (Actually you should buy them early so you don’t have to worry about things selling out.)


    Check out the video below for some of the best deals in this ad.

    Price Drops This Week At Harbor Freight!

     

    As you probably already know Harbor Freight isn’t pumping out the coupons like they used to. Over the last few months they have been putting out a few specialty coupons that are good for only 3-4 days at a time. The coupons may not be available like they used to be but they still are discounting prices on some items. Below is a list of recently marked down items at Harbor Freight.

    Harbor Freight: 2 Free Items For Inside Track Club Members ONLY! (Expires 5/2/21)

     

    Free item coupons are back! Well kind of. They aren’t coupons and they aren’t available to everybody but you can get one of 2 free items at Harbor Freight starting today through 5/2/21. This promotion is for Inside Track Club members only and as usual for free items they are free with purchase of another item. According to the fine print you can get 1 free item per day. It looks like this promotion is working the same as the other recent promos for ITC members. Once the cashier knows you are an ITC member you should automatically get the discount. Make sure to check your receipt I have seen lots of complaints from ITC members not getting their discounts.

    Also, Harbor Freight used to give you a $10 gift card for signing up for the Inside Track Club…they don’t do that anymore.

     

    Harbor Freight: Spring Black Friday Sale!

    Harbor Freight just released the sale ad for their Spring Black Friday sale. Traditionally this sale has been essentially a parking lot sale with a different name. The typical parking lot sale is a 4 page ad however this Spring Black Friday sale is a total of 12 pages. Also, any Harbor Freight sale would usually be competing with the existing coupon prices. Since they are only putting out short term specialty coupons now I guess its easy to fluff up the sale ad with things that used to always have a coupon available.

    Harbor Freight: $5 Tool Sale, FREE For ITC Members! (Expires 3/15/21)

    Harbor Freight just announced their latest $5 tool sale. They run this sale a couple of times a year. The way it works is you can get the 6 tools shown below for just $5 each when you make a purchase of $50+. Once you break the $50 threshold you can buy 1 $5 tool or you can buy all 6 of them. In the past the $5 tool would count towards the $50 total. So in this case you could buy $30 worth of $5 tools and then get $20 of filler, I doubt Harbor Freight has updated their system so this probably still works.

    The new twist this time around is if you are an ITC member you get the items for FREE with a $50 purchase. The fine print does state one per customer per day. However I read this to mean you can get 1 free drill bit set or 1 free flashlight. Each item is a different offer.

    If I were going I would grab all 6 and see if they give me all 6 for free. Interestingly if they won’t do that can you get 1 free item and then 5 $5 items like a non ITC member would be able to get? Honestly I think this could get messy for some people.
