Nearly 70,000 Stanley Security Solutions Door Locksets Recalled

Dec. 7, 2016

Consumers should stop using the locksets immediately, as they pose entrapment risks that are especially dangerous in the case of an emergency. 

Stanley’s commercial cylindrical series BMHA/ANSI Grade 1 heavy duty locksets with dead-latch components has been recalled due to failing latches and problems with the door not being able to be unlocked from the inside, posing entrapment risks. The failure could lead to the inability to vacate a location in an emergency.

The recalled locksets were manufactured by Stanley Security Solutions Taiwan, Ltd. in Taiwan and have brass, bronze, nickle, chrome, or satin chrome finish. They were sold under 18 different brands.

Nearly 70,000 of the locksets were sold at Stanley Commercial Hardware and other lock distributor and retailers in the U.S. and online at Amazon.com and Grainger.com from February 2016 through September 2016.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled locksets. For Stanley Commercial Hardware-branded locksets, consumers should contact Stanley Commercial Hardware and for all other brands, consumers should contact Stanley Security Solutions Taiwan to receive a free replacement latch or to schedule an appointment to have the latches replaced free of charge if the lockset is already installed.

Contact Stanley Commercial Hardware toll-free at 855-885-1296 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or at www.stanleyhardwarefordoors.com and click on Products, then on Recall for more information.
