Report Receipt Date: NOV 25, 2013
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V599000
Component(s): LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES
Potential Number of Units Affected: 512

Manufacturer: Wells Industries, Inc.

SUMMARY:
Wells Industries Inc. is recalling certain model year 2006-2013 Wells Cargo trailers manufactured January 1, 2006, through April 25, 2013 and equipped with Fastec-brand door locks. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.

REMEDY:
Wells Industries will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of December 2013. Owners may contact Wells Industries at 1-801-621-3637 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.

NOTES:
