DEWALT Industrial Tool Co., of Towson, Md. has recalled DEWALT DC608 Cordless Brad Nailers. The nailer can operate when the lock-off (safety) is in the locked position. Also, the nailer can operate when the trigger is not pulled and the contact trip is depressed. The unexpected ejection of a nail poses a serious injury hazard to consumers. DeWALT has received two reports of nailers operating when the lock-off (safety) was in the locked position. The company says no injuries have been reported. This recall involves the DEWALT DC608 18 Volt Cordless two-inch 18 Gauge Straight Brad Nailer with date codes 200728 through 200821. “DC608” is located on the right side of the magazine. The date code can be found on the underside of the handle, once the battery pack is removed. Units stamped with an “M” following the date code are not included in this recall. Consumers should immediately stop using the nailers and contact DEWALT for the location of the nearest service center to receive a free repair.
