Recall Details Report an Incident Involving this Product
The Husky Securelock vertical bike hook can unexpectedly detach and allow the bike to fall. This poses a risk of injury to bystanders.
This recall involves Husky® Securelock vertical bike hooks used with a Husky Trackwall garage storage system. The 3 by 3.5 inch black metal plate is mounted to the grooves in the Trackwall and the bike's tire is attached to a hook protruding from the plate. There are no markings on the hook. The Trackwall has "Husky" printed on the lower left corner. The hook holds up to a 35 pound bike.
The firm has received 22 reports of the bike hooks falling from the mounted Trackwall, including 12 reports of property damage to bicycles and/or nearby vehicles. No injuries have been reported.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard.
