Fred Safety Screw Fit Wooden review

Product alert

The sample of this stair gate that we tested failed a key safety test that forms part of the EU standard for stair gates (EN 1930:2011) where we check for any gaps that are wide enough for a child to squeeze their leg and hip through. If there’s a gap that’s big enough, there’s a chance a child could get stuck with their head trapped – a potential strangulation risk. 


Fred Safety told us:


'Which? testing has identified a way in which the Fred Wooden Screw Fit Gate could be installed incorrectly. We are confident that this is a very rare eventuality. Fred Safety is committed to providing the very highest levels of safety and all our products meet or exceed safety standards. To make this gate safer than ever we have already made the minor modification that makes it impossible to install the gate as it was tested by Which?. If any customers have concerns, they should contact fred@cheekyrascals.co.uk.'
