We needed to secure three areas, the entrance to our kitchen, the opening between our living room and our entryway, and our son's doorway. We also wanted the option of securing other areas in our condo so a removable, retractable gate would be the best solution in terms of saving space and being able to fit all of those locations. We initially looked at a competing product, but the gates were too tall to fit under our kitchen counter. We ordered the Dreambaby gates with a bit of concern about the quality but so far we've been very satisfied with the product. Our 9 mo. old son is always pushing against them and has experimented with trying to lift the bottom of the screen but the gates have held firm. We've seen the videos online where pets crawl under the gate but there is no way our son could pull it up enough to get his head under the gate. Installation was easy but I would recommend that you use the template to mount the gate and then extend the gate and manually mark where you want the latches to go. No doorway is perfectly plumb so if you use the template to mount the laches, chances are your gate won't be perfectly taut. The gates look great, work well, and are decently sturdy. They do make a lot of noise when they retract, which is billed as a safety feature, but you can open them silently if you hold the unlocking mechanism down while opening the gate. Overall we're really happy with these gates!
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight, Easy to Install
gate is a little pricey but worth the money.use it for the bottom of the stairs and its nice that it virtually disappears. The manufacturer gives a second set of lockig clamps which allowed me to use the gate to do double duty .By setting the gate on a 90degree to the stairs and a wall im able to use it for either the stairs or the room. So even though it cost twice as much it actually works like two gates would.
I bought 2 retractable gates for my preschool as a way to divide my space (we had to divide classrooms to accommodate the COVID licensing regulations of smaller group sizes). The gates are a great way to fulfill the licensing regulations but are removable for when the regulations revert back. The gates are easy to operate and look great!
This worked great for us, we only needed it to act as a visual stopper for our dogs. I wanted it to be able to roll up because we have a small house and wanted something compact but still useful. This gate is not meant for youngsters that would hold on to it or dogs that would jump on it.

The gate was easy to install. Once in use, became difficult to open and close. Always needing two hands to open or close it, and if you don't hold down the lock, it makes an awful clicking noise when retracting.

The gate is advertised as suitable for stairs but it doesn’t tighten enough so that there is a gap large enough for a small child to fit through.
