The hinges that hold the gate in place can break, posing a fall hazard to children if the gate is placed at the top of the stairs. The recall involves the Safety 1st SmartLight Stair Gate with model number 42111, which is printed on a sticker under the handle panel. The gates, which were manufactured before December 31, 2007, are white metal with a gray handle and a motion sensor nightlight that illuminates on approach. The manufacture date is located below the gate’s handle as a date wheel imprinted in the plastic; an arrow indicates the month, and the year is stamped inside the circle. The manufacture date is also printed on a sticker inside the battery door. Consumers should stop using the recalled gate and contact DJG to obtain a free repair kit. Please do not return your SmartLight Stair Gate to the store where you purchased it.
