Door lock recall

We received a recall notice today in the mail regarding our deadbolt cylinder on the entry door. It's saying that occupants may be locked in the TT due to defective cylinder. Has anyone else received this notice?

Got one today. It is for a fasted brand lock. I checked mine and I have a Bauer brand. So mine is not involved. The letter said the deadbolt key should only be able to go in the 12 and 3 o'clock positions. The bad one can be put to the 9 o'clock position which would make the inside lock unusable, locking people inside. That would be bad.

Just so you know.... I have a Bauer door latch assembly on our Eagle's front and rear doors. The key numbers are the same, less the "HF" in front of the numbers. As mentioned in another POST (see link below), my front door suffers from the recall notice. It turns to the 9 o'clock position and the key can be removed. I tried locking it and removing the key @ 9 o'clock and a few times I encountered the issue of the assembly not being able to be unlocked/opened from the inside. We contacted the mfr on the recall (Fastec) and they instructed us to fill out the "ONLINE" form and submit it. They are sending us a new cylinder and we need to change it and send the old one back. So, even though it has Bauer's name on the key, it appears that the tumbler is manufactured by Fastec.

I would suggest that EVERYONE go out and perform the test on the TT locks. Better to be safe than sorry. If you can take the key out in the 9 o'clock position, your lock is affected.

Man, this is what I love about this web-site!

I also received the notice today as well. I saw my key had the Bauer label on it and I thought the recall didn't affect me..... Until I saw Mustang65s' post. Sure enough, my Bauer key has one of the numbers listed, just without the "HF" on it. So, I'll play it safe..... I'm going to the trailer and see what happens.....


Just a suggestion, maybe a Mod can post this in the General Section as well. I don't normally look at the Recall section....

I got the letter today and my lock is affected by the recall. I tested the lock and it is defective. I emailed a request for the replacement parts.

Here is a link to an RV article about Evergreen trailers having the same issue with Fastec locks.

I got the notice. I have the Bauer lock. I tested it anyway. Mine is OK, no problem.

However, I was surprised that I even opened the envelope. Even tho it said Recall Notice. I usually do not open anything sent "Presort Standard" as that is how junk mail is sent. If a recall is deemed necessary it should not be sent as junk mail.
