WASHINGTON, DC (WBAY) – Stanley Commercial Hardware is voluntarily recalling 70,000 door lock sets because they may not open. The latches can fail and won’t unlock from the inside, potentially trapping people behind a door that won’t open in an emergency.

The commercial cylindrical series BHMA/ANSI Grade 1 heavy duty locksets were sold under 18 different brands. They came in a brass, bronze, nickle, chrome or satin chrome finish.

Stanley has four reports of the latches failing. No injuries resulted.

They were sold since February for $170 to $320 through retailers and lock distributors nationwide and online through Amazon and Grainger.

For Stanley Commercial Hardware-branded locksets, consumers should contact Stanley Commercial Hardware toll-free at 1-855-885-1296 weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Central. For all other brands, contact Stanley Security Solutions Taiwan to receive a free replacement latch or to schedule an appointment to have the latches replaced free of charge if the lockset is already installed. More information may be provided at www.stanleyhardwarefordoors.com – select Products, then Recall – but at the time of this writing no information was published.
