(WPTA21) — Awning covers used with several retractable awnings are being recalled due to
impact and fall hazards that have claimed the life of one man and injured six other people.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the recall involves soft vinyl awning covers
used with SunSetter Motorized, Motorized XL, Motorized PRO, Motorized PROXL, and Oasis
Freestanding Motorized Retractable Awnings.
The recalled covers were distributed by SunSetter from June 1999 to January 2019 and
supplied with bungee tie-downs.
Customers with recalled awning covers should not remove or install them until they get
instructions from SunSetter. SunSetter is also providing customers with free breakaway
safety clips that will replace the bungee tie-downs. The company is contacting affected
customers directly, but customers can contact SunSetter for more information.
