Husky® SecurelockTM Vertical Bike Hooks, sold exclusively at Home Depot
This recall involves Husky® SecurelockTM vertical bike hooks model number THD208CAN, SKU 1000726802 used with a Husky® SecurelockTM Trackwall garage storage system. The 7.5 cm by 9 cm black metal plate is mounted to the grooves in the Trackwall and the bike’s tire is attached to a hook protruding from the plate. There are no markings on the hook. The Trackwall has “Husky” printed on the lower left corner. The hook holds up to a 15 kg bike.
The mounted bike hooks can unexpectedly detach, allowing the bike to fall. This poses a risk of injury to bystanders.
