Risk description
Burley has identified that the Ballz QR Skewer may fail in use. Burley has received warranty reports that the axle portion of the skewer has sheared when initially installed and/or during use with the Coho XC Cargo Trailer. If the skewer fails while riding, the Coho XC Cargo Trailer could become partially separated from the bicycle leaving only one of two tow arms connected to the bicycle. This could cause instability of the trailer and the towing bicycle and pose a fall hazard for the bicycle rider.
