Stanley Black & Decker has recalled 2.2 million DEWALT, STANLEY, and CRAFTSMAN Fiberglass Sledgehammers due to an injury risk.
The head of the sledgehammers can loosen and detach unexpectedly during use, which poses an impact injury hazard to the user.
There were 192 reports of the sledgehammer’s head detaching, including 2 consumers who reported injuries to their face and head.
The recalled sledgehammers were sold nationwide at Home Depot, ACE Hardware, other stores and online from November 2013 through November 2022 for between $18 and $26.
The recall involves certain DeWALT®, Stanley FATMAX® and Craftsman® Fiberglass Sledgehammers. They weigh between 2 and 12 pounds and range between 14″ and 36″ in length.
