Outlaw recalls 10 for Fastec door locks

(Nov. 18, 2013) -- Outlaw Conversions is recalling 10 model year 2006-2013 Hart, 4-Star, and Platinum gooseneck horse trailers with living quarters equipped with Fastec-brand door locks. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Outlaw Conversions is recalling 10 model year 2006-2013 Hart, 4-Star, and Platinum gooseneck horse trailers with living quarters manufactured Jan. 1, 2006, through April 25, 2013 and equipped with Fastec-brand door locks. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.

If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the travel trailer at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle without using the emergency exit, increasing the risk of injury.

Outlaw will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of Dec. 2013. Owners may contact Outlaw at 1.254.968.5733 or Fastec at 1.800.837.2505.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1.888.327.4236 (TTY 1.800.424.9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
