DEWALT Framing Nailer Recall

Jun 26, 2009 | Parker Waichman LLP

Distributor DEWALT Industrial Tool Company, of Towson, Maryland has voluntarily recalled about 9,000 DEWALT D51825 and D51850 Framing Nailers, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced.

The DEWALT Nailers have been recalled because the bump action trigger on the framing nailers could have been incorrectly assembled during production, which would allow the nailer to eject a fastener unexpectedly or cause the trigger lock-off not to function. This potential assembling error can pose a serious injury hazard to the user or bystander. To date, no injuries or incidents have been reported.

The DEWALT Nailers, which were manufactured in Mexico, were sold at wholesale distributors and retailers nationwide from January 2008 through September 2008 and retailed for about $280.

  • DEWALT framing nailers with model numbers and date codes listed below are included in the recall:
  • Clipped Head Framing Nailer: Model Number D51825; Date Code Range 20080249-20082749
  • Full Round Head Framing Nailer: Model Number D51850; Date Code Range 20080249-20082749.

The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using the framing nailers and contact DEWALT for instructions on receiving a free replacement bump action trigger. DEWALT can be reached toll-free at 1-877-437-7181 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or at the firm’s Web site at
