Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports two mounting bolts installed on some SpareTime bicycle carriers may not meet minimum strength requirements as specified in Yakima technical documentation. These bolts could break resulting in the bike carrier being ejected, creating a road hazard to other vehicles which could possibly result in a crash or injury to persons outside the vehicle. The company has received two reports of incidents related to the use of this product in the United States but none in Canada.
