Trampolines sold at Sports Authority are being recalled for Repair

Sportspower Trampoline being recalled for repair - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - Around 23,400 trampolines that were sold exclusively at the Sports Authority are being recalled for repair. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall of the trampolines that were manufactured by Sportspower Ltd., of Hong Kong. To remedy the problem, the company is offering a free repair kit.

The recall was announced after one incident; one of a legs on the trampoline separated from the frame while being used. The problem caused a leg to puncture through the jumping area. The company is not aware of any injuries related to this recall.

The concern is that other trampolines that the company manufactured might have the metal leg move out of position. This can cause the jumping area to be punctured and could lead to a person using the trampoline being seriously injured with penetrating wounds, cuts, and bruises.

The Sportspower Parkside trampolines with the model number TR-14FT-COM are involved in the recall. They were sold exclusively at Sports Authority stores nationally between April 2007 and May 2012 for around $540.

The model number is located on the original packaging and is also printed on the instruction manual. The word “Parkside” is printed on the enclosure net. The diameter of the trampoline is 14 feet. The trampolines have blue and light blue fabric on the safety mat and pole sleeve covers.

Consumers who have the recalled trampolines are asked to not use them until they can install a free repair kit. To get the repair kit at no cost, contact Sportspower toll-free at (888) 965-0565, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. The manufacturer’s website is sportspowerltd.net.
