Cuggl Safety Gates
Argos want to bring to your attention a potential safety issue with a number of Cuggl Safety Gates (descriptions). Extensive testing has identified that some gates may fail to consistently meet all the required safety standards, resulting in the brackets or wooden slats breaking under high impact - for example, regular banging or kicking of the gate, failure of the auto-close feature and / or the gaps between metal bars being wider than the required standard, which may result in a child getting trapped.
