Bicycle trailers

Thule Child Transport Systems Ltd is recalling about 44,000 Chariot bicycle trailers and bicycle trailer conversion kits because the hitch mechanisms can crack and break, causing the trailer to detach from the bicycle.

Recalled trailers have serial numbers from 1205-xxxx to 0710- xxxx (representing manufacture dates December 2005 through July 2010) located on the left side of the frame. Recalled conversion kits have hitch arms that attach the carrier to the bicycle with model number "20100503" printed on a label attached to the aluminum tube next to the warning label. Older conversion kits without a label, but with a release push button located where the hitch arm inserts into the carrier, are also being recalled.

They were sold from December 2005 through August 2010 for between $400 and $925 for Chariot bicycle trailers and from October 2002 through August 2011 for between $40 and $70 for bicycle trailer conversion kits.
