Harbor Freight's store in Salinas puts their ads at front of store but the cashier rings the regular prices. If you notice, the manager is called who then rudely says the ad starts in several & he takes 10 min to void sale. This process prevents you and anybody else in line from buying anything else.
Merchandise is of questionable quality & the store does not stand behind the product unless you buy an overpriced extended warranty & you save all your receipts (yeh, right). Defective products I have been forced to eat are:
1) Solar auto battery charger that melted when placed on the dashboard!
2) A/C recharge hoses that either leaked vacuum or fell apart when hand-tightened.
3) RotoZip type saw baseplate that crystallized & then broke.
Harbor Freight items may be ok for limited use but their store personnel don't care about customers & are only interested in trying to sell you an overpriced extended warranty. Also, you should consider the ads at the front of the store to either be fraudulent bait & switch pricing or the store out-of-stock list for those items actually on sale at good prices.
