Buddy L Pool Clamp Recall

On May 26, 1995, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Buddy L. Inc. announced a recall of approximately 75,000 metal pool clamps used to hold filter hoses on above-ground swimming pools, due to a laceration hazard from sharp edges if swimmers come into contact with the clamps.

The metal clamps were included on above-ground pools sold in 1994 with model number 1213 (12 inches in diameter and 36 inches high), model number 1214 (15 inches in diameter and 42 inches high), or model number 1215 (15 inches in diameter and 42 inches high).

Since the summer of 1994, the company has received 18 reports of injury from the metal clamps. Consumers are advised to discontinue use of any pools with the metal clamps and contact Buddy L. at 800-589-3343 to receive free plastic replacement clamps.
