Poor Quality - Savage clips,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nurseryware Extending Fireguard (Baby Product)
My problems started immediately when setting the guard up first time. The top folding sections are hinged and, when the guard is delivered (or subsequently stored) clip to the front sections by two clips. Unfortunately the clips are welded to the section, but slightly misaligned with each other. It was virtually impossible to prise them off the support, certainly with just your hands. Even with a screwdriver it was very difficult to prise them off, and in this case they unclipped with some force and half ripped my thumbnail off. Then when putting the guard up to be put into use the same clips were very difficult to clip to the side sections due to the misalignment. Now, if you were then going to keep the guard up and in use permanently you could be OK. But we are grandparents and wanted to use the guard only when our grandchildren visit. We had anticipated that we would be able to easily fold it away in its' box when not in use, but these hateful clips make it so difficult to take down, and then it will only fit in the box if you reclip the top sections folded flat with the front sections. But this is impossible - it's impossible for us to clip them, and the guard does not therefore fold completely flat. We would have sent the damned thing back but needed it urgently over the snowy period, and anyway cannot get it back into its' box to post it. Be careful with this item!! You get what you pay for!!
