Sevca, LLC, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, has announced a voluntary recall of Sevylor Tow Behinds with Quick Hitch Connectors. The recall involves about 94,000 units sold at department and retail stores nationwide from January 2005 through December 2009 for between about $50 and $240.
The Quick Hitch, which connects the towable to the boat, can break and project pieces of the plastic Quick Hitch back towards the boat. If this occurs, an individual can be struck and seriously injured. Sevca LLC has received one report of an occupant of a boat being struck by a piece of the Quick Hitch still attached to the towrope.
