B&W Custom Truck Beds is recalling roughly 31,580 Tow & Stow adjustable ball mounts equipped with Nitrotec-coated steel pins that are used to secure the ball mounts to trailer hitches. The securing pins on the recalled ball mounts may fracture while being used.

If the securing pin fractures, the trailer being towed could separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a collision or pedestrian injuries.

The Tow & Stow adjustable ball mounts included in this recall were manufactured from February 7, 2013 through January 7, 2014.

B&W will directly notify owners of the affected ball mounts. The defective securing pins will be replaced with stainless steel pins free of charge.
