Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves certain Reese Explore hitch mounted Four-Bike Carriers identified by model number 63144 and UPC 042899139317.

The recalled Bike Carrier is black in colour and labelled with the phrase, “REESE EXPLORE” on the vertical bar. There are eight (8) cradles on the top of the bike carrier that hold the bikes.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s design and retail presentation.

According to Health Canada, the cradles on the recalled Bike Carriers may fail, and this may cause a bike to become partially or fully disengaged from the Bike Rack. If a bike fully disengages and falls onto the roadway, the resulting road hazard may cause a vehicle crash or property damage.

Neither Health Canada nor Cequent Performance Products has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of this product.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Bike Carriers, please do not use them. Instead, kindly contact Cequent Performance Products to obtain a repair kit.
