Latches for Utility Vehicle Doors by Pro Armor Recalled for Hazards

Riverside, CA — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and LSI Products Inc. dba Pro Armor have voluntarily recalled latches for utility doors for ejection and laceration hazards. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on February 21, 2012.

The recall was issued after discovering that the latch pin can disengage from the latch allowing the door to open while the vehicle is moving, which poses a risk of ejection of an unrestrained rider. This also can cause an impact and laceration hazard.

“The Pro Armor Slam Latches are black metal door latches sold for use in Polaris RZR, Can-Am Commander and Kawasaki Teryx utility vehicles. The latches were sold separately or purchased as an add-on installed on a door that was bought separately,” the CPSC reported.

Consumers are advised to contact Pro Armor for a free repair kit.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Pro Armor at (888) 312-7667 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or visit www.proarmor.com. Pro Armor is contacting its customers directly.
