IKEA recalls children’s safety gates over reports of accidents.

IKEA has recalled children’s safety gates over the unreliable locking mechanism which could result in injury for kids.

Yesterday, the Swedish furniture retailer said they’d received reports that the gates have opened unexpectedly, causing children to fall down stairs and require medical attention.

The recall targets the Patrull safety gate and urges customers who have this model to stop using it immediately. You can return them to an Ikea store without proof of purchase and get a full refund.

  • I wouldn’t have thought that baby safety gates could not get released without a great deal of testing – do they have to be graded at an Australian Standard?

    Good on Ikea for recalling them.


  • I am left wondering how these pass safety standards in the first place?
    Any how for now as much publicity about the recall as possible needs to get out and I pray that no serious accidents occur.


  • Another recall from IKEA. Must gr careful here!


  • Is it just me or does Ikea have a lot of recalls on baby products


  • Good to see products recalled so no-one else can get hurt.


  • It’s important to give so much advertisement as possible to these recalls. Hopefully no child was seriously injured!


  • The last thing you’d expect to be unsafe is a safety product!


  • I hope there are no accidents as a result of the faulty gates.
