They definitely do the trick. However, my kids have outgrown them now and I can't get them off!! Some serious thought went into the product for hold safety, but 3 years later when the instruction are long gone, they are not simple to figure out.
I wanted a plain white gate to keep our dog in the kitchen and this fit the bill. It's been in use for about a month and a half now. I wish the attachment hardware was metal because I can already sense how the lock is changing - just not 'snapping' into place as positively as it did at first although it still feels sturdy and the dog hasn't managed to escape it (and he's crashed 2 other gates). My biggest gripe is the safety warning permanently emblazoned across both the top and bottom so you can't hide it and it doesn't appear I can get rid of it without damaging the finish. It's very quick and easy to remove & replace the gate if you want it gone for the day although the hardware remains on the door frame. I didn't want an auto close gate because we only need it intermittently but gate doesn't stay open, it always swings back (you still have to manually lock it in place) but I'm not sure if it's the gate or the house/installation causing it. Overall good value for the price. FYI - It's not a stark, cool, appliance white, it's warmer, if that matters.
I bought this to use with the new big boy bed ( twin bed) that my husband and I got for our grandson for X'mas. We found it super easy to assemble and put on. So glad we decided to get it for his safety and his parents peace of mind.
