This recall involves Stanley’s commercial cylindrical series BMHA/ANSI Grade 1 heavy duty locksets with dead-latch components. The latches can fail and the door cannot be unlocked from the inside, posing an entrapment risk. This failure could lead to the inability to vacate a location in an emergency.
The recalled locksets were manufactured by Stanley Security Solutions Taiwan, Ltd. in Taiwan and have brass, bronze, nickle, chrome, or satin chrome finish. They were sold under 18 different brands. View all involved brands and model or part number information here.
The firm has received four reports of the latches failing. No injuries have been reported.
About 70,000 of the locksets were sold at Stanley Commercial Hardware and other lock distributor and retailers nationwide and online at Amazon.com and Grainger.com from February 2016 through September 2016 for between $170 and $320.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled locksets. For Stanley Commercial Hardware-branded locksets, consumers should contact Stanley Commercial Hardware and for all other brands, consumers should contact Stanley Security Solutions Taiwan to receive a free replacement latch or to schedule an appointment to have the latches replaced free of charge if the lockset is already installed.
