I use the hockey puck adapters and a thin piece of wood between the jack stand and hockey puck.
As I was jacking the front of the car up the weight shifted and one of the jack stands slid out.
I know they make jack stands with the inserts that fit right into the jack points and I'm pretty sure that would have kept the car from sliding off the jacks.
The main thing is being careful and going slow.
Once the car is on 4 jack stands it is very secure. I have had my car on 4 jack sands for a couple weeks at a time.
Hard part is getting it up an down.
holy crap! ... this is why one day I want to get the ezcarlift..
