Yakima Recalling FlipSide Bike Carriers

Published June 29, 2011

BEAVERTON, OR (BRAIN)—The FlipSide bike carrier is being recalled, according to Yakima.

A small number of units shipped from April 2008 through June 2011 have malfunctioned. In these instances, the FlipSide’s upright mast has folded to the side while the vehicle is in motion.

All FlipSides produced since 2008 and having a red pull-pin knob are affected by this recall.

Yakima is sending a user-installed upgrade kit at no charge to consumers. This kit takes about 15 minutes to install and replaces the retention pin with a longer one.
