Originally I was looking for a pressure fit gate but the basic frames that usually house the gate doors just tend to take up up too much space, and there’s always the annoying trip bar st the base. If you don’t mind screwing into the wall / door frame then this gate is much better (I can’t compare against other fixed gates, though most were too wide for my 69cm wide door frame). And dead simple to remove the gate altogether just leaving the wall fixings. Now it’s up, I find it quite discrete, if left open as the gate is not at all thick or bulky as there is no handle mounted onto the swing part of the gate. The release mechanism is all part of the wall mount.
As others have commented the 8 wood screws that come with the gate are really short so do replace them with bigger ones to give a more robust feel. I didn’t even bother with the short ones provided. With longer screws (I used 4mm x 35mm wood screws) the gate feels really solid though I won’t be letting my child stand on the gate. (Rawl plugs would also need to be sourced if mounting into anything other than wood)
The installation instructions (photo included) aren’t toooo bad though I appreciate others’ comments that they weren’t especially easy to follow. I’ve attached a few notes over the instructions in one of the review pictures that might help. One thing to note is that tiny plastic piece included is a stopper to prevent the gate opening in one direction. I put mine in so that he gate can only swing away from the door (can see this in picture of locking clasp on right hand side). Just that it is not immediately obvious in the instructions what the bit is for.
I have been researching safety gates for a while every since our little one started climbing the stairs. I wanted to get ones without the bottom rail as it can be a trip hazard, which meant I couldn't get the pressure fit ones. These gates you have to drill in but didn't have a bottom rail so there is no obstruction at the top or bottom of the stairs. You can also completely remove the gate door quite easily when your child doesn't need it anymore and just leave the attachments fixed on the wall/stair frame.
Installing the gates was pretty straight forward. I read from some reviews that the drilling template provided isn't accurate so I didn't use it. However, when i did line it up it did look accurate to me. Once installed the gates work well. I would recommend using some grease as it makes the whole opening and closing operation a lot smoother. You may also want to attach a door buffer/cushion pad on the gate as continuous opening the gate and allowing it to hit the wall will leave a mark.
What lets this product down for me is the stop pins provided that restrict the gate to open in one direction rather than both. They are just pieces of plastic provided that slot into a hole but which over a few uses fall out and become a choking hazard for little ones. Only thing you can do is to try to permanently glue the stop pin in.
Overall though I have been pleased with this purchase.
I used it in an old cottage for my upstairs landing. The width of the gap of my stairs are very wide, over 100cm, so I had to find a gate that was as close as possible in width. Initially I thought this would be more complicated to put together with all the parts but in fact it was easy. To fit the gate to the wall (plasterboard), skirting board (wood) and stair railings (wood) was a complex task, all surfaces where not level and on different planes. as it involved less planning and more feeling things through, with a lot of adjustment and changing of mind. This gate was perfect, you could adjust it's length incrementally on all four corner parts, making the fit as easy and precise as possible. It comes with a paper template, so you can mark the screw points prior to proceeding. I can't praise it enough, it made easy to what could have been a nightmare of a job.
