An auto parts manufacturer is issuing a recall for a product that is causing a safety concern in trailers.

Henderson Wheel & Trailer Supply Inc. is voluntarily recalling certain torsion arm assemblies due to the fact that the arm was made too small for its housing. As a result, the torsion arm, spindle, and tire and wheel assemblies may detach from the trailer. A separation of the torsion arm can result in a loss of trailer stability and control, increasing the risk of a crash.

The company is recalling 600 assemblies. The affected part numbers are B-7100A, B-7110A, HT-35XL, T35545EB, T35545I, T35550EB, T35550HB, T35550I, T35655EB and T35655I.

Henderson Wheel will notify the trailer manufacturers that used the affected axles in their trailer production. Those companies will notify their customers and will reinforce or replace the torsion arm assemblies, as necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about the recall should contact Henderson Wheel customer service at (801) 486-4916.
