Product Safety Australia have recalled the IKEA—PATRULL KLÄMMA & PATRULL SMIDIG Safety Gates due to a potential safety hazard.

The IKEA—PATRULL KLÄMMA & PATRULL SMIDIG Safety Gates with product numbers 70226524, 10226522, 70175609 and 50175610 were sold in IKEA stores in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia from the 1st April 2012 - 11th February 2015.

The defect is that the friction between the wall and the pressure mounted safety gate may not be sufficient to hold the gate in its intended position. In addition, the lower metal bar could constitute a tripping hazard.

The hazard is that if the gate does not remain in place, children may gain access to unsafe areas, posing an injury hazard.

Consumers should return their PATRULL KLÄMMA or PATRULL SMIDIG safety gate with date stamp 1510 or prior, to any IKEA store for a full refund. Any PATRULL safety gate extension units may also be returned for a full refund. Proof of purchase is not required.
