Chronology :

In the summer of 2020, Trailer Boss of Spokane contacted us stating he had a customer that had had a gate fall off of his deluxe box trailer . On February 9th, 2022, Trailer Boss of Rochester contacted us stating that a customer gate had fallen off his deluxe box trailer. In March the decision was made to go to a hinge stop that was constructed out of aluminum instead of rubber. Those new stops went into production March 21st, 2022. Then on May 17th, 2022 we had a customer contact us stating that he had a gate fall off of his deluxe box trailer in the process of driving from Nevada City, California to Maine. It was at this point that the decision was made that we needed to issue a product recall.
