Summary

LGS Industries, Inc. (LGS) is recalling certain 2014-2021 Cargo Sport, Shadow, Journey, Premier Race, and Aftershock trailers. The rear door winch cable may break.

 

Remedy

LGS will install a BLOCSTOP fall arrestor, free of charge. Owner notification letters were mailed 02/25/2022. Owners may contact LGS customer service at 1-877-475-5665.

 

Notes

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.nhtsa.gov.

 


What is the Concern?

Look Trailers has learned about two incidents occurring on competitors’ cargo trailers where the winch cable securing the rear door snapped, causing the rear door to freefall and strike bystanders. Look Trailers has not received reports of any winch cables snapping, or of any similar incidents on Look Trailer cargo trailers, and believes its trailers were properly designed and manufactured, and meet all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Standards. Nonetheless, in an abundance of caution, Look Trailers has decided to field modify the 9 cargo trailer units it has sold since 2014 on which a snapped winch cable could cause the rear door to freefall and injure a bystander. These nine units are equipped with a winch cable as the sole means of securing the rear door. You are the owner of one of those nine vehicles.

 

What will Look Trailers Do?

Look Trailers will add a 3M DBI-SALA load arrestor to your trailer. The 3M DBI-SALA Load Arrestor monitors the speed of the ramp door’s descent. If the ramp door’s speed exceeds .5m/s (1.64ft/s), the 3M DBI-SALA Load Arrestor instantly locks the cable and safely supports the rear door. Look Trailers will add the 3M DBI-SALA Load Arrestor to your trailer at its own cost and expense.

 

How long will it take?

The work will be done as quickly and as efficiently as possible and is expected to require approximately two hours to complete, though it may take longer depending upon each vehicle’s configuration and condition.

 

What should you do?

Contact Look Trailers by phone at 1-877-475-5665 extension 1134 toll free between the hours of 8am EST and 5pm EST, Monday through Friday, to arrange for Look Trailers to install the 3M DBI-SALA Load Arrestor modification on your trailer. You should also immediately inspect the winch cable on your trailer for signs of wear. Replace if worn.

 


Chronology :

On or about June 10, 2021, LGS heard about two incidents occurring on competitors’ box trailers where the winch cable securing the rear door snapped, causing the rear door to freefall and strike bystanders.

After learning of these occurrences on competitors’ trailers, in an abundance of caution, even though it has never received any reports of incidents involving winch cables on its trailers, LGS decided to field modify the 9 trailers it has made since 2014 on which a snapped winch cable could cause the rear door to freefall and injure a bystander.

After considering potential remedial measures and their possible implementation on the nine LGS units in the field, LGS began discussing a potential recall with NHTSA in November, 2021 and filed its 573 report in December, 2021. LGS has not yet implemented the field modification on any of the nine affected trailers.
