The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recently indicated that multiple sky walker tree stands have been affected by a recall issued over a possible personal injury risk.
The recall announcement was issued promptly after the company indicated that at least six incidents involving the stand’s aluminum platform breaking were reported. The official announcement claims that the cast aluminum platform in these devices can suddenly break. This issue could cause the user to lose support and fall to the ground. Since the fall hazard may eventually lead to personal injury, the devices are being recalled.
Ameristep Hyde Cliff Hanger and Sky Walker Tree Stands sold in the United States between July 2014 and November 2014 are mainly used by hunters. Consumers can check if the items they have have actually been impacted by verifying the device’s model numbers 2RX1H008C and 2RX1H009C. The word “Hyde” can be found in red on the device’s vertical aluminum bar, which is placed between the foot platform and the seat.
While six incidents were reported, no injuries have been linked to any of the occurrences.
