Great gate for odd spaces

Feb 11, 2009
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Easy set-up, very sturdy, very kid-proof

Cons:A little pricier than others, but very worth it.

The Bottom Line: I love it - excellent and sturdy.


This is a great gate for spaces where a normal straight-line gate won't do.  We have this around our downstairs landing, at it works great.  Sturdy metal construction, easy open door for grown-ups but not for toddlers/babies.

If it isn't quite big enough for you (for most people it will be) you can buy extensions which are very easy to add on, and the whole structure will be quite sturdy.  Like a regular gate, it fastens at the two ends, but the gate's weight will keep it upright no matter what.  You can also configure it to be in a circle if you want an outdoor playpen for the kids (or dogs - see below).
It's metal, not wood, so it doesn't warp.  It also sits on the ground, so finding an anchoring spot that's strong enough for a free-floating gate is not an issue.  The way we have it set-up, there isn't even much strain on the anchors if the kids push on it - it's taken by the gate itself.
I have also heard anecdotally that this is a great gate for small dogs (we only have the kids).
I highly recommend this gate for any non-doorway or hallway only use.  You won't regret it.
