The Hammock Source is recalling about 32,500 Key West Knock Down Hammock Stands.
The weld attaching the stand to the base can break, posing a fall hazard.
The firm has received nine reports of the stands breaking at the base, including two reports of scrapes and bruises.
This recall involves hammock stands made of eight pieces of steel tubing powder coated in bronze that were sold only as stands without hammocks.
The hammock stands measure about 180 inches long by 48 inches wide by 48 inches tall. They were sold under the Key West brand with the model code KW-KDBRZ. The Hammock Source, the model code, and “Steel Hammock Stand” are printed on a white label on the outer package near the carry handle.
The hammock stands, manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Lowe’s stores nationwide and online at Lowes.com from October 2020, through May 2022, for about $120.
