The gate is a great deal and I as a Nana of three beautiful grand babies that range in age 4 yrs ,2 yrs and 6 months will get a great deal of usage, plus I have a miniature dachshund that I plan on using this very sturdy gate for.So it will serve as a multi purpose gate I had borrowed a friends when I saw the same gate @ K- Marts I was thrilled so now I have my own!!! This gate is great because I can block off a specific play area without fear of them pushing on it and it falling over once it is secured in place it does not move until I remove it !! So yes I am more than pleased with this gate and highly recommend it to anyone! Thanks, Tammy Spears
I was excited to get a gate my older kids could open instead of having to climb over. Its not a one handed open. You have to unlock it and pull it up. Then adjust the width back to open it. When you're locking it its hard to push down into the lock place. Im really disappointed. We will be keeping it since there are already holes in the wall.
I am a family childcare provider. I have used MANY gates. This gate is by far the worst. I need it to switch between two different doorways fairly regularly - nearly impossible to resize from door to door and even more impossible to get locked in place. I have to literally put all my weight on the locking handle to get it to lock.
I was reading the comments of the past users and I have no clue what the problem is. The product is a bit difficult to get set up but the instructions guide you through it all. After the instal it is the best thing ever. There is no difficulty opening or closing It, my 3 year old can testify to that. It requires a small pull or a small push to open or close it. Works on small or wide hallways. Best gate ever. We are passing it on to other family members who have small children. You won't regret the purchase. Edit, up to age 3 it works perfect for small children out of a room or many rooms.
