Sturdy, quality Gate

What I love about this gate:- Easy to assemble, took me less than 10 minutes- Easy to adjust, the two main poles twist to adjust in length- The netting is durable and not a complete eye sore- Hold in place well, my kid likes to run into the netting for fun and it doesn’t budge out of place- Price, it’s cheap but doesn’t act cheapWhat I dislike- Obviously you get what you pay for, it doesn’t have a door in the middle so it’s ideal for an area where you don’t have to jump over it every 10 minutes. I put it in a high traffic area of our house, between the kitchen and our livingroom. Big mistake, I’m jumping over this thing ALL the time and it has become a huge inconvenience. ***If you are overweight and can’t lift your legs very high a lot this is NOT for you, my mother in law dreads this thing and it’s quite hilarious to watch her go over it 😀

This worked great for stairs. I liked how it is pressure mounted, and required no installation. Now it is pressure mounted by turning the bar, not by springs, so turning it to the right length was a pain, and took a bit, but once it was there i was happy. It is not too tall and not too much trouble to walk over.

Love it!

This gate is so easy to install and so many places that it can be used. We actually using this on our stairs, put it flat on it, so that the baby can’t go over the rail on to the stairs.

Very adjustable for a Perfect Fit!

This gate is great. It has two tension rods for tom and bottom adjustment so you can get a perfect fit even if your wall is uneven (like a baseboard at the bottom). We used it in a hallway. It is wide yet short enough for our cats to jump over and us to step over – excatly what I wanted. Yes, pets jump over it. We’re using it to keep our little one away from the pet food, water bowl, and litter!

Easy to install and move!

I wasn’t really sure what these were going to be like but once I received them I was pleased to see they look exactly like the sides of my son’s pack and play. I was very hesitant purchasing gates that have bars because he is attracted to anything that he can grab or looks like his crib (He is 8 months). Since this looks like his pack and play, he really has no interest playing with the gates. They are very neutral and you can easily remove them if you are having people over and want to tone down the kid-ness in your house. I think these would be perfect for anyone who has pets and the mesh removes and is washable. If you are looking for something in a high traffic area, this gate may not be the best. I am 5’2 and it is very difficult to step over the gate and I definitely would not feel comfortable stepping over the gate holding my child. I just remove the gates when we are done playing rather than step over them with my son. The gates set-up like a shower curtain rod, so if you are renting or don’t want marks in your wall, you will also like the fact these remove easily. Definitely measure your doors prior to ordering. These are for a larger door frame and would work great in larger spaces and hallways. The instructions from Evenflo say 38 inches (97 cm) to 60 inches (152 cm).

We Love IT

We bought another gate we loved it so much. It fits all our entryways and is easy to put up and down, even one handed while holding a baby!
