Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled locksets and contact the firm for instructions on receiving a free replacement lockset. The company has received eight reports of lockset latch failures, but no injuries have been reported.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported Dec. 12 that dormakaba USA Inc. has recalled about 14,500 Stanley Commercial hardware locksets because they can fail to open, posing an entrapment hazard and inability to vacate a location during an emergency. About 13,500 of them were sold in the United States, along with about 800 that were sold in Canada and about 200 sold in Mexico.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled locksets and contact the firm for instructions on receiving a free replacement lockset. The company has received eight reports of lockset latch failures, but no injuries have been reported.

 

Consumers who purchased them are asked to contact the company toll-free at 855-885-1296 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET weekdays or to visit www.stanleyhardwarefordoors.com for more information.

This recall involves Stanley Commercial Hardware's grade 1 mortise lever lock QMS/QME 100 Series. The recalled locksets have Bright Brass, Satin Brass, Oil Rubbed Bronze, Satin Nickel, Bright Chrome or Satin Chrome finish. The locksets were sold in 15 different "functions" or models that can be identified by the three digit number following the QMS/QME series, which is located on the mortise case that is installed in the door cavity.

The locksets were sold at Newport Distribution, CBS Manhattan, Columbus Door Company and other lock distributors and retailers nationwide, and online at www.Grainger.com from December 2013 through June 2018 for between about $450 and $650.
