My cat has, in her old age, taken to using the upstairs as her restroom. She usually picks my bed. She's probably mad at me, but her expression of her anger is not really leading to the issue at hand. Therefore, the issue at hand has become the expression of her anger. Anyway, we decided keeping her out of the upstairs would be the most effective method for dealing with it. This gate is doing the trick quite handily. It is tall and steel and has slats close enough together to keep the cat in the lower level. The latch is easy to use but complicated enough that MOST kids won't figure it out. (It took my 21- and 13-year-olds long enough. I'm sure a 4-year-old would get it faster.) The gate has excellent instructions that allow it to be put together quickly. It comes with two extensions and for some reason my husband was able to more quickly see that one was 6" and one was 12" than I. Go figure. Anyway, the fact that it is not fully extendable was a bit of an issue. It will fit in most spaces, but not the one I had originally planned. That was fine. My husband prefers where it is. (This is the reason I rated it GOOD rather than EXCELLENT.) It is pressure mounted, but has cups to help keep it on the wall more securely. If you have a future rugby player, however, you may want to get something a bit more permanent as s/he might be able to push it in.
My aunt bought these for my son for his first easter and it was so nice finding a bink he really liked and would actually stay in his mouth. We started our daughter on these when she was born and she took to them right away. Now pregnant with the third I have already started picking up these when my local grocery store has in stock.
