Outdoor Playset Gliders Recalled

Date:
October 8, 2008
Category:
Playground Equipment
Company/Brand:
Backyard Play Systems
The Danger:
Some of the gliders were shipped with assembly instructions that did not inform consumers to tighten all lock nuts during assembly, including those attached by the manufacturer. As a result, some lock nuts were not fully fastened during assembly, which could cause the glider to detach, posing a fall hazard to children.
Description:
This recall involves about 500 outdoor playset gliders designed to hang from home play equipment. The green plastic gliders were sold as an accessory to home play equipment marketed under the brand names Heartland Play Systems, Yardline Play Systems, and Backyard Play Systems.
Sold At:
Backyard Buildings and More and Lowe's stores nationwide, and online at Costco.com, BettyMills.com, and BackyardBuildings.com from February 2008 through July 2008 for about $100.
What To Do:
Immediately stop using the gliders until all lock nuts are securely fastened. For more information, contact Backyard Play Systems at (866) 890-2211 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET Saturday, visit their Web site at BackyardBuildings.com, or e-mail customerservice@backyard-play.com.
