The maker of the Bring Your Adventure brand of sports hammocks recalled 760 nylon hammocks due to a fall hazard.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the hammocks have a welded ring that can fail during use, allowing the hammock to pull free. 

The recall involves BYA Sports Double Hammocks. The nylon hammocks were offered in orange or blue and measure 12 feet by 6.5 feet. Customers should check the UPC bar codes printed on the back of the merchandising card, which was attached to the hammock. Recalled orange hammocks carry the UPC 7456112010186, while the blue ones are 7456112010193. 

They were sold online through Amazon, Dick's Sporting Goods and Target between January 2015 and  March 2016. Gander Mountain also sold them at stores nationwide. They ranged in prince from $60-$75.
