Rated 5 out of 5 Perfect for my needs
I went through and read all of these reviews before purchasing and was almost convinced that I should buy something else. I decided to go to my local store to check them out before opting for the more expensive choices. Due to the fact that I live in an apartment, I didn't want to buy anything too bulky, but needed something that was going to last. Many of the reviews on here that are negative are cases where this product just didn't make sense.
I read many of the reviews stating that these things are ready to collapse due to not being able to pin open the legs. Here's your fix - Walk over to the hardware aisle and buy 8 1/4x3/4 hex bolts. It costs $0.88, and solves the problem. After you open the legs there is a gap at the top of the sawhorse on each leg. Just jam a bolt in on each leg (I bought two sawhorses = 8 legs) and these things are solid, and it only takes a second to put them in. If that is too much work for you to make these things stable, enjoy having a tough life
I've attached some photos of the bolts I used to pin the legs, and also of 2 of the sawhorses in action. The desk that is setting on horses is one half of a very large L-shaped desk. The total weight on the horses is about 200 lbs in the picture, and I put all of that up there myself by putting one side on the right horse, and then lifting the left side up and sliding the other horse underneath. Without the legs pinned, these guys would have collapsed immediately.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by DBCOOPER This product does the job Great !
Just got these after reading the reviews and looking at other brands. Put a 2x6 on top and got the 1/4" bolts with wing nuts to keep the legs open and was good to go ! I might drill a 3/4" hole in the ends to put a dowel rod in so I can have a place to hang the saw on. Best saw horses around !

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GRUMPY GREAT PRODUCT
THE PRODUCT IS GREAT . EASY TO USE AND ADJUST TO YOUR HEIGHT. I AM SORRY TO HEAR THAT THIS PRODUCT IS BEING DISCONTINUED. I HAVE 4 PAIR AND I USE THEM EVERY DAY. I MAY NEED TO LOOK AT THE ONES AT LOWES FOR FUTURE PURCHASES. THEY HAVE THEM BUT BY A DIFFERENT MANUFACTURER. IT IS A SHAME TO STOP CARRYING A PROVEN PRODUCT. I BOUGHT THE LAST TWO AT THE GLEN BURNIE MARYLAND STORE.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by bears It gets the job done
It gets the job done, but there is nothing to keep the legs in position, so it is a little wobbly. Maybe a brace that folds down between the legs to make an "A" would help. On the up side, it takes up so little space when folded up!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by shauste Sturdy; Folds away to almost nothing
A salesman at my local Home Depot recommended these sawhorses. He also suggested I add a 2x4 to the top to keep from cutting into the sawhorse top. I've read a few complaints about stability but I've had no issue thus far. When compared to plastic, space hogging designs or rigid non-folding designs, this product beats the competition hands down. I've tried the plastic ones, the put together ones, and the ones with the brackets where you add your own legs out of 2x4...nothing as good as these. If you must have rigid stability, these are not for you. If you care more about portability and ease of storage...make the purchase.
