Pros:Works in challenging and large spaces. Durable.
Cons:Requires doing permanent damage to walls.
We were complexed at how to proof our new home for our 'soon to be crawling' son until finding this gate. We realized we would be doing permanent damage to a wall and banister, but we didn't have any other way to keep our son away from the stairway and front room that was unsafe for him. This gate has been working flawlessly for 3 1/2 years and we expect it to continue to last until our youngest son, now 11mths, is ready to have free access to the stairs and front room.
