Pro Armor Recalls Doors Due to Impact, Laceration Hazards
Pro Armor, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, has issued a recall notice for its doors that fit 2010-2014 Polaris RZR 800 and 900 models.
According to the recall notice, the latch pin can disengage from the latch and allow the door to open while the vehicle is moving, posing a risk of ejection of an unrestrained rider and impact or laceration hazards.
Consumers are asked to contact Pro Armor for a free repair. More information is available at proarmor.com.
The recall affects about 300 doors sold as accessories for the RZR models. The doors have a black powder coated finish and have four major components: a large square sheet metal panel, a smaller triangular sheet metal panel, a tubular metal frame and a latch. The panels are interchangeable and come in two styles. One style has cutout vents along the top and the other style has none. The smaller panel has a white Pro Armor logo below the cutouts. The latch is silver with a black locking mechanism that attaches to the vehicle frame and a handle that attaches to the door.
Pro Armor has received 23 reports of the latch pin disengaging, but no injuries have been reported.
Manufactured in the United States, the doors were sold at powersports dealers and online reailers from June 2014 through October 2014 for approximately $550-$600.
