Reports of Injury Prompt Recall of SKLZ Recoil 360 Resistance Trainers

- by

Los Angeles, CA: About 52,000 units of the SKLZ Recoil 360™ All-Position Resistance Trainers are being recalled following reports of serious injuries. A weld on a ring on the resistance trainer' belt can break during use and cause the resistance trainer' flexible cord to quickly and unexpectedly retract and hit an exercise partner who is holding the other end.

This recall involves the SKLZ Recoil 360™ All-Position Resistance Trainers, which is a leash-type device that provides resistance during exercise. The resistance trainer consists of a belt, an 8-foot flexible cord attachment leash, a safety handle and a storage bag. "KLZ"followed by an arrow is printed on the belt. Users wear the belt, which is connected to the flexible cord. The safety handle, connected to the flexible cord, is held by a coach or partner to provide resistance while the user runs, jumps or shuffles. In lieu of a coach or partners, the safety handle can be connected to a sturdy stationary object like a fence or post. Belts with the arrow before the "KLZ"are not included in this recall.

The firm has received three reports of the weld on the resistance trainer breaking and resulting in serious injuries, including blunt trauma to a lower leg, a puncture wound and a laceration.

The items were sold at Academy LTD, Dick' Sporting Goods and other sporting goods and fitness stores; sporting goods and fitness catalogs; and online at and from January 2013 through December 2014 for about $40.
