PATRULL KLÄMMA and PATRULL SMIDIG Safety Gates
Description: These safety gates are white, made of steel and plastic, and measure about 29 inches high with an adjustable width from about 29 inches to 34 inches. The gate has a spring mechanism that fits between the two sides of the door frame to hold the gate in place. A permanent label is attached to the metal bar at the bottom of the safety gate containing an article number. Gates with the following article numbers are recalled:
Hazard: The friction between the wall and the pressure-mounted safety gate is insufficient to hold the gate in its intended position, posing a fall hazard. In addition, the lower metal bar can be a tripping hazard.
Remedy: Consumers should stop using the safety gate and return it to any IKEA store for a full refund. Any PATRULL KLÄMMA /SMIDIG safety gate extensions may also be returned for a full refund. Consumers who want to keep their PATRULL KLÄMMA or SMIDIG safety gate for limited use in a doorway between rooms or at the bottom of a staircase can contact IKEA to receive free updated user instructions and new adhesive warning labels to put on their safety gate.
