This review is from: BabyDan Premium Hearth Gate Fire Guard (Black) (Baby Product)
This is quite easy to put in the shape you require and stays there once put. You can use the included fittings to attach to the wall, which are rather heavily engineered, or if you get hold of some pipe clips you can screw it to the skirting board to save the wall: this will be ok until the baby gets a bit bigger. It is large enough to enclose the hearth, coal bin, tools etc without a problem, and solid enough so that when he uses it to pull himself up it doesn't come away.
The gate is quite easy to open for an adult, but the littlest fingers haven't attempted it so far. It is easy enough for an adult to lean over the top to adjust the fireplace, but the child will have to be quite big to do the same, so I think it looks relatively safe.
It gets warm with a roaring fire but not hot.
Does the job right now, and in black is not bad looking. It allows the baby free roam of the lounge without fear of going near the fireplace.
