IKEA is recalling 80,000 baby gates.

Consumer safety experts say they can unlock by themselves and lead to falls. Ten injuries have been reported, including two concussions.

The recalled gates are the PATRULL safety gate and extension, the PATRULL FAST safety gate, and the PATRULL KLAMMA safety gate and extension. The PATRULL KLAMMA was first recalled by IKEA in May because of reports it was coming unmounted from the wall and not staying in place.

IKEA says owners can return the affected baby gates for a full refund.
