Eleiko Pro Dumbbell
We have become aware of a potential issue with the Eleiko Pro Dumbbell. If the handle becomes jammed and can no longer freely rotate, there is the possibility that the screw holding the head in place can unscrew during use and cause the head to dislodge and separate from the dumbbell shaft. Please inspect your equipment regularly to ensure it is in good working order. For the Pro Dumbbells, this inspection should include a review to ensure the following: The end cap is in place The handle is rotating freely The dumbbell heads are securely fastened All screws are secure and tightened If you hear any rattling or other sounds or notice sharp edges or loose-fitting or jammed parts, please stop using the dumbbell immediately and contact the Eleiko customer support team or your local sales representative. If you have the Eleiko Pro Dumbbells and are concerned about this notice, please contact customer support, and we will work with you to resolve the issue.
Eleiko Classic Dip Rack, floor model (3000490)
We have become aware of a potential issue with the Eleiko Classic Dip Rack. If the rack is not attached to the floor and installed correctly, there is a significant risk that this unit will tip over during usage. As a result, we changed the suggested installation method from; “recommended to be attached to the floor” to “MUST be attached to the floor.”
Eleiko PL Squat Stand/Bench, Inserts/bar rests
We have been informed of an incident whereby one of the welds on the inserts/bar rests on the Eleiko PL Squat Stand/Bench has broken due to fatigue, causing a potential safety risk to the user.
