Detailed Recall Information for American Hauler Cargo Trailers
|2013-10-18||(Published by NHTSA on 2013-11-02)|
|Recall Summary:||American Hauler is recalling certain model year 2006-2010 cargo trailers manufactured January 1, 2006, to July 30, 2010, equipped with a flushlock option (which uses a Fastec-brand door lock). It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.|
|Hazard:||If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the cargo trailer at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle without using the emergency exit, increasing the risk of injury.|
|Remedy:||American Hauler will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided that agency with a notification schedule. Owners may contact American Hauler at 1-574-264-0227 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.|
|Additional Info:||Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.|
