May 26, 2016 Leave a comment
This recall involves the Exterior Gate Closer Model 1350. The affected gate closer is affixed to external gates and has a body that is approximately 6.5 inches long, with a sliding arm that is about 3 feet in width when extended. The unit is marked on the side of the body with “MAB/ASSA ABLOY.” The recall only includes units produced between January 2014 and December 2015. The unit’s production date is stamped on the side of the gate closer body in a “week/year” format and can be accessed by removing the body’s plastic housing.
The firm has received 15 reports worldwide of mechanisms breaking and ejecting metal objects.
Consumers should immediately stop using the gate and contact Rixson for information on safely removing the arm from the gate closer and returning for a free replacement gate closer. Rixson is contacting consumers who bought the recalled product directly.
