IKEA brings back dangerous security gates for small children

IKEA returns the furniture to everyone who takes it back to the store. According to the report, due to the unexpected appearance of the Patrull gates, in some cases even children needed medical attention. A third-party inspection showed that the security gate's shutter structure was unreliable and risked that it met the requirements of the relevant standards and passed the tests. Then IKEA called the Patrull Klamma and Patrull Smidig mounts attached to the door frame without the need for a saw, because they could have fallen off the top of the ladder.
