H&H Trailers has announced a recall for products equipped with hinges with a tendency to break.

The auto manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 GCA Golf Car Trailers, AMS Bike Trailers, RSA Rail Side Single Axle Utility Trailers, RSA Rail Side Tandem Axle Utility Trailers, SSA Solid Side Single Axle Utility Trailers, and SSA Solid Side Tandem Axle Utility Trailers. The affected trailers may be equipped with aluminum gate hinges that may bend and possibly break.

If the hinge breaks, the gate may open unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash.

H&H believes that nearly 1,700 trailers are impacted by this issue.

H&H will notify owners, and dealers will replace the hinges, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in January 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact H&H customer service at (712) 542-2618.
