This was the perfect solution to our need for a gate at the top of our stairs. It looks very nice and compliments our interior vs the other plastic gate options. We are very pleased.
We use the gate at the top of our stairs. My 3 year old has put all her weight on it and it is sturdy. Sometimes it's hard to open, takes a few extra seconds but it's not a big deal. I dont really like how you have to life it up a little to open it but then again it's something that a child probably wouldn't be able to do so I guess it's a safety feature. All in all it's a good gate and great for top of stairs.
I use this gate to keep my dogs at the foot of the stairway. We did not want to nail the gate to the wall and because we just use tension to hold the gate, I won't rate it too well for medium to big dogs as they have figured out how to push on it until it falls down.
This gate is easy to adjust and install. The adjustment allows it to fit a different width opening at the top and bottom to fit your needs. The gate stays in place and fits wider than normal openings.
