so that the ratchet bar can't come out of the stand
also prevents it from extending too far

The bent tab keeps the 'rachet bar' from falling out on your toe if you handle the stand upside down. Click the image to open in full size.

how funny... I just noticed that on mine this weekend too.. we have the exact same brand jacks, I think.. I'm thinking of doing the old "weld to the plate" thing after seeing other low $ stands fail along the seam, though. Click the image to open in full size.
