B&W Recall Stainless Steel Locking Receiver Hitch Pins Due to Defective Towed Trailer

B&W Custom Truck Bed recalled 8,378 5/8″ Stainless Steel Locking Receiver Hitch Pins, part number TS51237 and TS51237JD due to potential safety risk.

A defective hitch pin lock can be removed without a key, allowing the ball mount to detach from the receiver tube.

A detached ball mount can allow the towed trailer to separate, increasing the risk of a crash.

Dealers will replace the locking hitch pin, free of charge.

There have been no reported incidents or injuries to date.
