  • Very Sturdy Gate

    This gate is very sleek and sturdy. It took a bit of time to figure out how to put it up, but I'll admit my husband put one piece on upside down... After that it went much more smoothly. However, ours does not close automatically. It is very secure once closed and our nephew gave up trying to push it down (like the one from another brand in his house) after a few minutes. There is a strange latch on top. You must lift up both small sides and then left the entire gate. It takes 2 seconds and I was able to do it while holding my 6 month old without a problem. However once we get it leveled properly and it closes by itself, perhaps we will not need to lift the gate up. I would definitely recommend this gate because obviously if you aren't the handiest person in the world, and it's not perfectly aligned to close automatically, you can feel secure that the child is not getting through. Another learn from my hubby's mistake...make sure you really drill 6 inches from the floor. we thought this strange at first because it was obvious a child could squeeze under it (we used my nephew as a guinea pig). But once the door is attached PROPERLY, there is not enough room for a child to fit under. Don't make our mistake of drilling 3 inches above the ground only to then have to take it out and drill as directed.

  • Good Gate

    The gate is as described. I need it to separate my dogs in the hallway. They are unable to work the latch and the gate will not lift if they try to get under it. The package arrived without instructions, but Prince Charming was able to figure it out. I wish it came in left or right swing so it will open either way flat against the wall but we were able to customize it with a shim. It is the most functional, least ugly gate I have seen that fit my needs out of the box. Thank you.

  • Nice sturdy gate!

    After my husband installed this gate on our unusually steep flight of stairs, I couldn't have been more pleased! My 8 month old can now roam the hallway whenever she pleases. I also really appreciate the lock mechanism, it works great for my grandmother who has arthritis. I would buy this item again.

  • Pretty much what I expected...

    This gate is great. Only negative I found was the latching system is not smooth.

  • Great gate. Have to get used to the latch

    I'm very happy with this gate. The latch is definitely different than any I've ever used. However, some of my family members have arthritis in their hands so this latch is nice because they don't have to squeeze anything to open it. If you have round banisters poles you'll need the banister attachment kits in order to install. There's no metal bar running across the bottom for my daughter to trip on which makes it a plus. For easiest opening make sure it's level.

    Perfect gate for the steps. Opens on either side.

  • good

    This gate is VERY sturdy. We installed it at the top of the stairs. We have banisters so we just bought two pieces of oak and screwed it into the banisters, then mounted the gate onto the oak. Once you get use to unlocking the locking mechanism its great. And the grandson cannot get the gate unlocked and opened. He even stands on it. The gate does close and is secure without locking it, if need be. We usually keep it in that mode for the older kids.

  • Very Secure Gate!

    While you must be willing to screw the mounts into your wood work, it is an extremely secure gate. It requires adept fingers to release the secure lock, which means toddlers cannot do it, but sometimes can also foil adults unfamiliar with how it works. My only complaint is that if the gate is opened and closed frequently, some of the fasteners tend to become loose. Perhaps lock-tite would remedy the problem.

  • Elopement/Fall prevention for Alzheimer's mom

    Mom fell down the steps resulting a fracture. We installed this gate in upstairs hallway because of its sophisticated locking mechanism. It's a bit inconvenient for us to have to lift and open the gate every time we pass, but that's what it takes to not risking mom's pain & suffering. It's been a year since we installed the gate, the alignment is a little off but it still works well. Mom is "contained" and safe!
