This was the perfect gate for our staircase. I love that it is removable and that it is extra tall. My little one is almost 3 feet tall and this gate is perfect for his height. The only drawback is the inability to securely lock it against tenacious toddlers. The little one has already noticed the squeeze latch is what unlocks the gate and has been messing with it... sigh its only a matter of time. I am keeping it though because it keeps the dogs out and swings easily flat against the wall so it is not in the way. I might try to figure a way to lock it but for now the latch is holding. It is also very sturdy as my little one has done his best King Kong impression shaking the gate trying to get it to open. The wood color is very nice and looks like it is easy to paint. Installation was quick and easy, I had to saw off part of the bottom to get the gate to work but that is only due to our thick molding on the floor that did not allow for a flush mount on both sides. I am getting another one for the top of our stairs.
