The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission recently reported that American home improvement and construction products retailer Home Depot is recalling around 120,000 bike hooks under the Husky Securelock brand after 22 reports of collapsing hooks, Bicycle Retailer and Industry News reported on April 15.
The defective hooks were manufactured in China for Waterloo Industries of Iowa. The complaints did not indicate that the broken hooks contributed to the occurrence of personal injury accidents, but it was evident that the broken hooks caused damage to bikes and nearby vehicles.
Waterloo Industries of Iowa has already issued a recall of around 105,000 hooks sold in the United States and 15,000 sold in Canada.
When products that are supposedly well-made and well-manufactured serve as hazards to the public because of their low quality and substandard craftsmanship, the companies that made these products may be held liable.
