If you are looking for a reasonable priced baby gate that isnt the traditional gate with the bars or crossed wire coated holes then this is a must have. I have a very active toddler and she's a climber. I was worried about her getting her feet stuck in the holes of other gates and climbing over it.Then I found this gate. There is no room for her to climb over. She tried too, but the little ledge on the side is to hard to climb up which is a big plus in my book. She's also tried to push it over with no luck.I'm sure some toddlers or larger children might be able to if it's not securely looked in place but unless someone's body slamming against the gate this shouldn't be an issue.
I orginally bought one of these just for at my mom's house but liked it so much I went back for the same gate to have at home. What's so great about this gate...let me tell you....
It's not called perfect fit for the heck of it. Its great for spots that may be slightly uneven.The gate truely does fit perfectly in any space ranging in size from 28 inches to 42 inches. It offers a nice range in size to fit more standard places a gate is needed.It's high enough to keep babies and toddlers out but low enough for adults to step over it, or if your short like me you may want to use the mounting feature that allows the gate to swing open.Does that mean the gate has to stay there. Nope! You can leave the mounts there and easily remove the gate.This gate is easy to install and also can be used at the top of stairs. There's a 1 hand release feature.You switch the latch pull up on the handle and slide.The only problem I had with this gate was the one handed release feature. I have trouble doing it one handed while holding my daughter. I have to use both hands. Of course it's a lot easier if the gate is properally fitted the first time.It's very secure in between the walls and if it's that tight you may need to use both hands. Other than that I love this gate. As a first time mom I would reccomend this to other first time mom's or any one with an active toddler.
If you have a dog, rabbit or another animal you want to keep to a certain area this may also be a great choice to use for them. The gate is not as expensive as simiiliar brands and has worked wonderfully for me in the few months that I've had it.
