PATRULL KLÄMMA and PATRULL SMIDIG Safety Gates have been recalled by IKEA North America Services LLC, of Conshohocken, Penn. 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. 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. To view a list of article numbers for gates being recalled, visit http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2015/IKEA-Recalls-Pressure-Mounted-Safety-Gates/ There have been 18 incidents worldwide, including three incidents in which children have been injured as a result of falling down stairs. No injuries have been reported in the U.S.
The gates were sold at IKEA stores nationwide and online at www.ikea-usa.com from August 1995 through February 2015 for about $35. 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.
