DeWalt has voluntarily recalled two models of framing nailers due to risk of serious injury. Possible incorrect assembly of the bump action trigger during production could cause the nailers to eject a fastener unexpectedly or the trigger lock-off not to function, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported in a press release yesterday.
So far, no incidents or injuries have been reported.
The models affected are the D51825 and D51850, with date codes 20080249-20082749. But, units stamped with "T" are not affected.
The tools, which were manufactured in Mexico, were sold at wholesale distributors and retailers nationwide from January 2008 through September 2008 for about $280.
Consumers should stop using the framing nailers and contact DeWalt for instructions on receiving a free replacement bump action trigger.
