Rep Fitness of Denver, Colo., recalled over 1,940 Strap Safety brackets due to potential safety risk.
If the brackets are improperly welded, a sudden drop of weight onto the Strap Safeties can cause the brackets to detach from the weightlifting device, posing an injury hazard.
The firm has received three reports of improperly welded brackets breaking when a large amount of weight was suddenly dropped on the Strap Safeties.
This recall involves PR-4000 (SKU No. PRA-4120) and PR-5000 (SKU No. PRA-5122) Strap Safety brackets.
Strap Safeties are designed to prevent damage to barbells due to missed lifts during weightlifting.
The brackets are black and attach to the weight lifting posts of a squat stand to ensure the strap safeties stay in place.
The straps on the Strap Safety products are secured to the brackets with heavy duty bolts.
The brackets were manufactured in China and were sold exclusively online at their website.
Rep Fitness encourages consumers to retain the strap safeties and heavy-duty bolts because only the brackets are being recalled.
The company encourages consumers to immediately stop using the recalled brackets and contact Rep Fitness for free replacement brackets.
