    • Nice gate but arrived damaged!
      Verified Purchase

      This was a nice looking gate in a cool platinum color... but unfortunately arrived damaged, with 3 bent bars, so had to be returned. Loved the idea of the pet gate part but we decided to go with something simpler that had no bottom bar as it needed to go near a stairwell.

    • Great gate poor presentation
      Verified Purchase

      Arrived with a ripped open box, 2 bent rungs, and no directions. We looked up assembly and installation directions online and it was easy to do both. The gate functions well and is much sturdier than plastic gates for the top of our staircase.

    • Very Sturdy Gate
      Verified Purchase

      This gate is very sleek and sturdy. It took a bit of time to figure out how to put it up, but I'll admit my husband put one piece on upside down... After that it went much more smoothly. However, ours does not close automatically. It is very secure once closed and our nephew gave up trying to push it down (like the one from another brand in his house) after a few minutes. There is a strange latch on top. You must lift up both small sides and then left the entire gate. It takes 2 seconds and I was able to do it while holding my 6 month old without a problem. However once we get it leveled properly and it closes by itself, perhaps we will not need to lift the gate up. I would definitely recommend this gate because obviously if you aren't the handiest person in the world, and it's not perfectly aligned to close automatically, you can feel secure that the child is not getting through. Another learn from my hubby's mistake...make sure you really drill 6 inches from the floor. we thought this strange at first because it was obvious a child could squeeze under it (we used my nephew as a guinea pig). But once the door is attached PROPERLY, there is not enough room for a child to fit under. Don't make our mistake of drilling 3 inches above the ground only to then have to take it out and drill as directed.

    • Great gate!

      This gate is great! It's even adult proof. Most of my guests can't get in or out.

    • Good Gate
      Verified Purchase

      The gate is as described. I need it to separate my dogs in the hallway. They are unable to work the latch and the gate will not lift if they try to get under it. The package arrived without instructions, but Prince Charming was able to figure it out. I wish it came in left or right swing so it will open either way flat against the wall but we were able to customize it with a shim. It is the most functional, least ugly gate I have seen that fit my needs out of the box. Thank you.

    • Nice sturdy gate!
      Verified Purchase

      After my husband installed this gate on our unusually steep flight of stairs, I couldn't have been more pleased! My 8 month old can now roam the hallway whenever she pleases. I also really appreciate the lock mechanism, it works great for my grandmother who has arthritis. I would buy this item again.
