Aries Industries is recalling 141 tow hitches manufactured for several truck brands and models with Class 3 and Class 4 tow weight ratings.
The tow hitches may not be able to tow the rated weight rating of these vehicles, which can cause the hitch plates to bend or break, or cause cracked welds.
Tow hitch plates that bend, break, or crack welds can make the towed equipment difficult to control or cause separation of the towed vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Aries will notify owners, and dealers will install reinforcement plates or replace the tow hitches free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin January 5, 2021.
Owners may contact Aries customer service at (262) 446-5624.
