Suspension Trainer Devices
The strap length-adjustment buckles can break, posing a fall hazard.
This recall involves older model “Professional” (P1) and “Tactical” (T1) TRX Suspension Trainer devices manufactured between January 2006 and July 2007. The recalled products’ anchor straps are yellow or khaki nylon with a carabiner at the top end and a black nylon loop on the bottom end. A black and yellow or black and khaki nylon strap is threaded through the black nylon loop on the anchor strap to form a “Y.” On each side of the “Y,” the strap has a cam buckle, which is used to adjust the length of the straps. Each end of the “Y” strap has a foam-covered hand grip and a foot cradle. The recalled devices have hand grips with no end bumpers, which are black plastic caps covering the ends and preventing the plastic under the foam from being exposed. They do not have an extra nylon loop, called a locking loop, attached at the point where the anchor strap and the “Y” straps are joined and designed to limit the slippage of the straps. The recalled products also have badges on the straps with the TRX logo and the word “Professional” (for P1 devices) or “Tactical” (for T1 devices) on them. The words and logo are surrounded by raised dots or have double lines through them.
Fitness Anywhere has received 570 reports of the strap length-adjustment buckles breaking with 82 reports of the user falling, including 13 reports of head, face, shoulder and hip injuries.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and contact Fitness Anywhere to arrange to return the recalled product for a replacement TRX Suspension Trainer device. Return authorization is required prior to returning the units.
