Stanley Security Solutions Inc. recalled about 63,100 door locksets because the latches can and the door can't be opened from the inside, creating a risk if a consumer can't get out in case of an emergency, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
The Indianapolis company received five reports of the latches failing, including one entrapment. So far, no one has reported getting hurt. Stanley products are carried in stores including The Home Depot.Included in the recall are 6K and 7KC series medium duty locksets. The sets have either a brass or stainless steel finish and may have the word "best" embossed on the key core. The locksets were made in Taiwan and were sold nationwide from April 2010 through January 2011 for between about $80 and $260.
Consumers can call Stanley Security Solutions at (888) 312-8875 weekdays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern Time to schedule an appointment to have the latches replaced for free.
