We have so many uses for this “gate”. With 2 kids and 2 GSD’s it’s always important to have clear boundaries, hahaha, our uses consist of, guarding the Christmas tree, surrounding the fire pit, cornering off parts of the house during projects and even, sectioning off some garden to get the grass cut etc. It dose not need to be fixed provided you angle it right, we’ve never had it pulled or pushed over, and it’s adjustable. Also with the gate as well you can “pop” into these spaces with no balancing acts, climbing over.
The plastic parts are a lil bit fragile, so be careful when assembling the product. My wife always tells me to read the instructions first (my motto real men don't need manuals is making her crazy) so when she found out that in the process i broke one of those plastic parts she yelled at me. Kept calm and proudly showed her that the manual was in french. Not to mention a piece of paper included in the package suggesting in plain English that we should read the instructions first!! Sarcasm?
