The weld attaching the stand to the base can break, posing a fall hazard.
This recall involves hammock stands made of eight pieces of steel tubing powder coated in bronze. The hammock stands measure about 180 inches long by 48 inches wide by 48 inches tall. The hammock stands were sold under the Key West brand with the model code KW-KDBRZ. The Hammock Source, the model code and “Steel Hammock Stand” are printed on a white label on the outer package near the carry handle. The hammock stands were sold only as stands without hammocks.

The Hammock Source has received nine reports of the stands breaking at the base including two reports of scrapes and bruises.
This recall was conducted, voluntarily by the company, under CPSC’s Fast Track Recall process. Fast Track recalls are initiated by firms, who commit to work with CPSC to quickly announce the recall and remedy to protect consumers.
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.
