PATRULL KLÄMMA and PATRULL SMIDIG safety gates
This recall involves the PATRULL KLÄMMA and the PATRULL SMIDIG metal safety gates with a date stamp 1510 (YYWW- Year & Week) or earlier.

A permanent label is attached to the metal bar at the bottom of the safety gate containing the article number and date stamp.

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. The safety gate is not intended to be used at the top of stairs. In addition, the lower metal bar can be a tripping hazard.
