Weld on Ring of BYA Sports Hammocks May Fail, Prompts Recall

A weld can fail and allow the hammock to pull free while in use

August 2, 2016

Bring Your Adventure (BYA) Sports is recalling 760 sports hammocks due to a fall hazard.

A weld on the ring of the hammocks can fail, allowing the hammock to pull free and fall while in use. This poses a fall hazard to the user.

This recall involves BYA Sports Double Hammocks sold in blue or orange. The nylon hammocks measure about 12 feet by six and a half feet with an attached nylon stuff sack and metal ring on the ends. The BYA logo is printed on the front of the stuff sack. Hammocks with the following UPCs printed on the back of the merchandising card attached to the hammock are included: 7456112010186(orange) and 7456112010193(blue). The BYA logo and DOUBLE HAMMOCK is printed on the front of the merchandising card.

The hammocks were sold at Gander Mountain stores nationwide and online from January 2015 through March 2016 for between $60 and $75.

The firm has received two reports of ring failure, including one report of bruising from a fall.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled hammocks and contact BYA Sports for a free replacement.

For more information, consumers can reach the company at (303) 443-0163.
