Rixson Exterior Gate Closers Recalled Due to Injury Hazard; Made by Assa Abloy Italia

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 gate closer mechanism can break and eject metal pieces including the spring or it can spray oil, posing a risk of injury.

Incidents / Injuries:
The firm has received 15 reports worldwide of mechanisms breaking and ejecting metal objects, including three in the U.S. No injuries have been reported.

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.

Consumer Contact:
Rixson toll-free at 866-474-9766 (Option 2) from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or contact Assa Abloy Italia online at www.assaabloy.it and click on the “Rixson 1350 Gate Closer Corrective Action” box on the right-hand side of the page for more information.
