The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a voluntary recall of about 500 Stübben Steeltec SEQ Stirrups. According to reports, the stirrups’ hinges can break, posing a fall hazard to riders. Stübben has received two reports of the stirrups breaking, but no injuries have been reported.
The recalled stirrups are made of stainless steel and have a hinge on each side. “Stübben STEELtec” is printed on the stirrups. They were sold in three sizes, 4 ½ inches, 4 ¾ inches, and 5 inches at Stübben-authorized dealers nationwide from August 2006 through May 2007 for about $100 per pair.
