Snap-on Ratcheting Tie Downs Recalled


Decatur – The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling Snap-on Ratcheting Tie Downs.

There were 129,000 units of the tie downs sold at Sam’s Club stores nationwide.  They sold for about $20.

This recall involves Snap-on ratcheting tie downs sold in a package of four. The 15 foot long tie downs are straps used to secure heavy items or oversize loads to trailers, trucks and hand trolleys.  The product’s ratchet mechanism is black and the straps are yellow with “Snap-On” printed in red across the strap. Product number 871343S is printed on the upper right corner of the packaging. Recalled units have at least one silver metal tab that is flush with the openings in the black metal ratchet handle. 

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports the ratchet handle can fail during use releasing a secure load.

The ratchets were sold between May and September of 2015.  They should be returned to Sam’s Club for a full refund.
