About 60,000 fence wire stretchers were recalled by SpeeCo Inc., of Golden, Colo. A recoiling wire can be released from the stretcher unexpectedly and strike bystanders, posing a laceration hazard. This recall involves SpeeCo’s fence wire stretchers, with or without a ratchet control, used for gripping and tightening any type of wire. The black stretcher has a rubber grip on the lever handle. It measures about 12 inches high, 1 inch wide and 32 inches long. SpeeCo and model S16111500, S161115TSC or S16112000 is printed on a label on the product packaging. The company has received two reports of a recoiling wire releasing from the stretcher unexpectedly, which caused cuts, abrasions and scratches to the user.
The stretchers were sold at Ace and True Value hardware stores and other supply and farm ranch stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from April 2015 through August 2016 from about $40. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled fence wire stretchers and contact SpeeCo to receive a full refund. Contact SpeeCo toll-free at 855-271-7189 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or online at www.speeco.com and click on Recalls for more information.
