Faulty bolts are prompting a recall from one trailer manufacturer.

Strick Trailers is recalling certain model year 2014 Van Trailers, manufactured November 12, 2013, to December 9, 2013. The trailers subject to the recall are equipped with SAF-Holland-brand CBX Trailer Suspension Air Ride Axle Systems.

The suspension on the trailer has pivot bolts that may fail at the point where the bold head meets the body of the bolt. Failure of these may cause the suspension and attached axle to separate from the trailer, increasing the risk of a crash. Strick believes that four trailers are affected by this issue.

Strick has notified the owners, and SAF-Holland has arranged for delivery of one repair kit per axle free of charge. SAF-Holland will reimburse the owner for the labor required to install the repair kits. The recall began September 17, 2015.

Owners may contact Strick customer service at (704) 436-2590.
