MW Company of Kansas City, Mo., is recalling about 260 MOMO Quick Release Steering Wheel Adapters for Race Cars.
The steering wheel adapter’s quick release can activate inadvertently and cause the race car’s steering wheel to suddenly detach from its steering column while the vehicle is in motion, rendering the vehicle impossible to steer and posing a crash hazard and risk of serious injury and death to the driver.
The firm has received one report of the steering wheel adaptor’s quick release mechanism engaging inadvertently. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves MOMO Quick Release Steering Adapters for Race Cars available in all-black and in black-with-red.
Steering wheel adapters of both color schemes each have “MOMO” printed in white at the top.
The all-black recalled steering wheel adapters display model number QRMOMOBKBK, and the black-with-red recalled adapters display model number QRMOMOBKRD.
The steering adapters, manufactured in the U.S., were sold at some small retailers and online at www.momo.com, www.jegs.com, www.summitracing.com, www.ogracing.com, www.windingroad.com, www.hrpworld.com, www.jhpusa.com, www.ltbautosport.com, www.timmcamis.com, www motorstate.com, www.carworx.pe, www.crowderscustomizing.com, www.enjukuracing.com, www.launchdistribution.com, ww.m2distributing.com, www.optionsauto.com, www.pegasusautoracing.com, www.parkhaus1.com, www.windingroad.com and www.winecountrymotorsports.com from July 2018, through May 2019, for about $375.
