The stitching in the strap can come loose causing heavy weights to fall on consumers, posing an injury hazard to the weight lifter.
This recall involves Titan weight lifting safety straps with steel mount brackets to hold the weights. The straps are used to catch the weights if a user were to drop them during an exercise. The recall includes straps with model numbers 24T3STRAP, 26T2STRAP, 30X3STRAP, 36T3STRAP, X2STRAP24, 24X3STRAP, 36X3STRAP. The Titan logo and model numbers are contained on the product’s packaging. The safety straps were sold in packages of two.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled straps and contact Titan for a full refund or free replacement straps. Titan is contacting all known purchasers directly.
The firm has received one report of a strap breaking when subjected to moderate weight. The firm is aware of three other reports of strap failures. No injuries have been reported.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
