I wouldn't recommend this for children. It's all metal and the ends of the bottom of the gate that swing are not tapered. In fact, they flair out a little bit. With that being said, it's perfect if you are trying to keep a toy Yorkie from terrorizing your house while you're at work. The gates are high enough that he can't jump over and the space between the metal spindles is small enough that he hasn't been able to stick his tiny little head through. One word of caution: The gates are expandable to the length specified, however, I ended up with a gap of about six inches from the last metal rung to the wall. I was able to use one of the two extensions that it came with to block that area off with the help of two plastic cable ties. Also, one of the handle no longer works "with one hand". I have to push the inner metal tube back with one hand while holding the handle back (the handle is what is supposed to pull the inner metal latching tube back) in order to get the gate to sit in the 'locked' position. It's not an issue since I'm securing a furry little dog instead of a toddler. Bottom line: If you need to restrict a smaller pet, this is a good bargain.
