ISO7X Isometric Exercise Bar Recall Issued Due to Projectile Hazard

Nearly 170,000 isometric exercise devices have been recalled following reports of users being injured when the handle bar grips broke, causing the exercise bar’s central metal shaft to break and turn it into a dangerous projectile.  

The ISO7X Isometric Exercise Bar recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on April 17, following at least 10 reports of problems where the black handle grips on the end of the nylon straps broke during use. In at least five of the reported cases, the internal spring and rod were ejected back toward the user causing puncture injuries and lacerations.

The exercise device allows users to perform isometric workouts by stretching nylon straps that run down opposite side of the center metal shaft. Reports have indicated the handles on the ends of the nylon straps may break, causing the center metal shaft, spring coil, and rod pieces to projectile toward the user or bystanders.
