The steering wheel adapter’s quick release can activate inadvertently and cause the race car’s steering wheel to suddenly detach from its steering column while the vehicle is in motion, rendering the vehicle impossible to steer and posing a crash hazard and risk of serious injury and death to the driver.
This recall involves MOMO Quick Release Steering Adapters for Race Cars available in all-black and in black-with-red. Steering wheel adapters of both color schemes each have “MOMO” printed in white at the top. The all-black recalled steering wheel adapters display model number QRMOMOBKBK, and the black-with-red recalled adapters display model number QRMOMOBKRD.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled steering wheel adapters and return them to MW Company for a full refund. Those who purchased the recalled steering wheel adapters directly from MW Company online will be contacted by the company.
MW Company has received one report of the steering wheel adaptor’s quick release mechanism engaging inadvertently. 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.
