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.
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.
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.
Great product, kept the granddog out of the kitchen yet enabled all of us two-legged creatures easy access through the easy open door. Comes with the accessories to make it a permanent fixture, or for safety like at the top of stairs.
