IKEA recalls child safety gates after locks fail

IKEA is recalling several models of safety gates and extensions after problems with the locking mechanism.

The company said that the locks can open unexpectedly and may create hazards for children.

IKEA says that anyone using the gates should stop doing so immediately and return them to any store for a refund.

This comes after the company recalled 29 million dressers after several children were killed.


This recall involves IKEA PATRULL, PATRULL FAST and PATRULL KLÄMMA safety gates and safety gate extensions. The gates and gate extensions are white, made of beech wood or steel and plastic. The pressure-mounted gates open both inward and outward. They measure about 28 ¾ inches high with an adjustable width from about 28 ¾ inches to 34 ¼ inches. The gate extensions measure about 28 ¾ inches high with an adjustable width from about 2 ½ inches to 5 inches.

A permanent label is attached to the metal bar at the bottom of the safety gate containing “IKEA” and the article number. Gates with the following article numbers are included in this recall:
