A trailer manufacturer is recalling a line of its products due to a faulty latch.

LGS Industries, operating as Look Trailers, issued the decision last month in regards to certain model year 2015-2016 Look Pace, and Cargo Express trailers. The models in question have a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 5,000 pounds or less and were manufactured between Nov. 4, 2014 and July 27, 2015.

The problem stems from the Ram 2" A Frame Coupler, used to secure the trailer to the tow vehicle. This piece of equipment may have been manufactured improperly, preventing the external latch from fully locking into place. If the coupler's latch does not fully engage, the trailer may separate from the tow vehicle, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash for the user or other drivers on the road.

LGS is yet to determine how many trailers are being recalled. The company will notify owners and dealers will perform the repairs, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on Sept. 15, 2015.

Owners with questions about the recall may contact LGS customer service at (877) 475-5665.
