The Sky Wheels can become detached from the overhead rail on the play set, posing a fall hazard and risk of injury to children.
This recall involves Sky Wheels, which are an individual active play component manufactured for and sold to businesses. They can be incorporated into a larger indoor soft-contained play system. The Sky Wheel is comprised of a 14-inch diameter 4-spoke metal wheel attached to a downward facing milled and threaded shaft which is supported from an overhead bar within the play system framing structure.
Businesses should contact Soft Play to schedule a free inspection. If needed, a repair will be made. Soft Play has contacted all known businesses/operators directly. Businesses have also been advised to communicate to customers to not use the Sky Wheel until it is inspected and, if necessary, repaired.
The firm has received a total of 15 reports of the Sky Wheel detaching from the rail of the play set including three reported injuries involving lacerations to the scalp.

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.
