Thousands of door locksets are being recalled due to risk of entrapment in an emergency.

This recall involves Stanley’s commercial cylindrical series BMHA/ANSI Grade 1 heavy duty locksets with dead-latch components. The recalled locksets have brass, bronze, nickle, chrome or satin chrome finish. They were sold under 18 different brands sold at retailers nationwide and online at and from February 2016 through September 2016 for between $170 and $320.

The latches can fail and the door cannot be unlocked from the inside, posing an entrapment risk. This failure could lead to the inability to vacate a location in an emergency.

The firm has received four reports of the latches failing. No injuries have been reported.
