A solid product which meets all our requirements.
on 2 August 2013
We bought this gate to fit between the wall and the bannister at the top of our stairs. Firstly, we needed a gate to fit a narrow gap. Most of the standard size gates were too wide. Secondly we wanted a pressure fitted gate as when we've had screw in gates without the pressure frame the screws have always come out of the wall. Thirdly, we wanted a gate that swings shut behind you, partly so that if older children are coming through the gate we don't have to worry about whether they've closed it behind them, and partly just for ease if carrying baby or piles of things.
We had not heard of this brand before but this gate fitted the bill and we're very pleased with it. It was straight forward to fit and opens both ways. It does have wall mounts for the frame to go into. These can be screwed in however we have not screwed them in and we're happy that the gate is solid and secure. Our son is 14 months old, we're confident that he won't be able to open the gate for a good while. You need to pull back the latch and lift the weight of the gate. It does clunk as it closes behind you but if you're trying to keep quiet at bedtime you can squeeze it back into lock position with a much quieter clunk.
Arrived really quickly and a definite good purchase.
