A recall has been issued for more than 2 million Stanley, DeWALT and Craftsman fiberglass sledgehammers, which may have a dangerous design defect making it possible for the head of the sledgehammers to loosen and detach unexpectedly during use, posing an injury risk to the user, or bystanders.

The recalled sledgehammers were sold at retailers, including The Home Depot, ACE Hardware, Amazon.com and other hardware stores and other online sellers from November 2013 through November 2022. The sledgehammers weigh between 2 and 12 pounds and range from 14 to 36 inches in length, and were priced between $18 and $26.

Stanley Black & Decker has received 192 reports of the sledgehammer heads detaching, including two reported injuries to consumers’ face and head. The company is offering a full refund to customers. Anyone that may have purchased the sledgehammers should immediately stop using them and contact Stanley Black & Decker for instructions on how to receive a refund.

To check to see if your sledgehammer is part of the recall, you can look for the model numbers marked on the head of the sledgehammer for DeWALT and Craftsman hammers, or a sticker on the handle for Stanley hammers. For more information on Sledgehammer model numbers go here: https://bit.ly/3oye9JH.
