Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product!! tried several brands before Takes about 10 minutes to install with the drill. Had one for the past 3 years and just moved to a new house where we'd be needing another, brought the old one with me. I will be buying the same exact one. Never had any problems. Sturdy,easy to clean, difficult to open for little kids, adjustable,easy to open with one hand, can take it out in 2 seconds when I have guests over . I have no idea why some of the other reviews were bad. I am very satisfied with it. The only downside for me was the price. May 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works Great, Secure, Easy setup The gate works well and adjusts to almost all of the openings within the house. Even used it outdoors on the deck to prevent falls down the stairs. One feature which would have been nice is if one side of the gate had adjustable tabs. This would allow firmer fits on uneven surfaces, but otherwise works great. June 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally! A Solution!!! This gate has really given me such peace of mind! I have a very active 15 month old, and am 4 1/2 weeks away from giving birth to his little sister. We live in a very old home, which has been remodeled. There are some problems that really can't be completely remedied when dealing with a 100+ year old row home though. Our stairwell is adjacent to the wall we share with the neighboring house. Unfortunately, the shared wall is out of, we have baseboard molding along the stairwell too. This made finding a secure safety solution very challenging. We tried many different options, but, with our particular circumstances, either nothing was working to our satisfaction, or would require a lot of creative installation modifications. This gate is totally solid and secure. The open/lock mechanism works just as easily as some of the other gates we tried...let's face it...they have to be a little awkward, or the little ones would have them figured out in a flash (at least our's would)! I would recommend this gate to anyone who has similar challenges finding a gate that fits! As far as the price point being high? Well, in my opinion, my kid's safety and my peace of mind are more than worth the price of this product! June 1, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by secondary lock mechanism broke within 3 months and my 20 month old opens it with ease. :-( !! the secondary lock on the gate broke in less than 3 months making it extremely easy for my 20 month old to open it. I would not recommend especially being used for stairs. May 1, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't waste your time We purchased this gate for our stairway to keep the dog from going upstairs. The gate installed okay, but the perfect fit feature is not so good and creates a loose fit. However, the main problem is that the gate is very cumbersome to adjust the width. Every time you lock the gate, the width gets wider, so after a couple of times opening and closing it needs to be adjusted again. We had another brand from a different store in our old house for 5 years and never had an issue with it. I am returning this and buying the other one. July 25, 2011
