Issue

The company has become aware of a manufacturing weld defect in the bike arm assembly.  If the consumer does not use the safety strap or lock cable, this failure could lead to the bike arm assembly detaching from the bike carrier. This could cause a vehicle crash or injury to a nearby passenger.   

As of November 7, 2022, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.
