Summary:
      LGS Industries Inc "LGS" is recalling certain model year 2017 Look, Pace, and Cargo Express cargo trailers manufactured October 24, 2016, to November 8, 2016. Due to insufficient welds, the bracket that attaches the torsion spring cable to the ramp door could detach from the ramp door.
Consequence:
      If the bracket detaches, the door can fall open, creating a crushing hazard or, if the door is completely open, the cable and bracket could act as a projectile, possibly causing personal injury.
Remedy:
      LGS will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the cable brackets, repairing them as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on January 17, 2017. Owners may contact LGS customer service at 1-877-475-5665.
