Great Features, Terrible Directions

I will start by saying that this gate is excellent. We have a wide opening at the top of our stairs, and this gate was perfect for us. It's also very attractive and should fit in well with most (if not all) styles of decor. With that said, the directions are probably the worst I've ever tried to follow. And that's saying something, as I've put together alot of furniture of this type. If you try to follow the installation directions included in the package, it will take you way too long to put together and you will likely get very frustrated. I read several other similar comments about this product, and they were absolutely right. My suggestion would be to start by taping the template to the wall (which is one of the last steps, according to the directions provided) and attaching the hinge plates. Then, insert the eyebolts into the hinging panel. When you have completed those two steps, hang the hinging panel onto the hinge plates. After you do that, it will be easy to attach the second panel to the hinge panel at the correct length. This may not make much sense as you're reading it, but if you purchase the product and try to follow the provided instructions, please refer back to my suggestions before you get too frustrated. You will save yourself alot of time and agony. Overall, I'm very pleased with the product. It looks great, and functions just as good as we'd hoped it would when we purchased it. I really like the fact that the gate is extremely easy to remove if you want to do so. I definitely recommend this gate.

Solid Gate

This is a nice gate, solid wood. We did a lot of engineering to get it in place, but that is more due to our house than the gate. We were disappointed as to the mechanism used for how you open/unlock the gate. We bought it for use at the bottom of the stairs between the banister and the wall. Having the lever on the side of the gate several inches down from the top was not going to work for us. How would I bend over and use my thumb or finger to unlatch the button with a baby in my arms? We took off the plastic hardware and instead installed a traditional picket fence latch. This works for us, at least for now. May have to buy a more sophisticated latch down the road when the baby can reach it!

Great gate, but only allows for inside mount

This gate is beautiful and is perfect for visible areas of a home. We use it at the end of our hallway, where it meets the living room. I would not say it's easy to install, b/c any time you are trying to line up something perfectly on two sides, it's a challenge. We had a family member who is very handy help us. He did a great job installing it and - as a result - the gate works great. (If you don't get things lined up right, it would not latch and un-latch smoothly, which is a must for high traffic areas.) It's easy to open (and of course close) one-handed, which is a must since baby is usually in my arms. You can also remove it from its brackets fairly easily (i.e. remove the gate, while the mounting hardware stays attached to the wall). That is a nice feature and we recently did that when we had grandparents staying with us for a few days. I uploaded 2 pictures of the gate. In the one picture, the gate is opened as far as it can go. The biggest draw back is it only opens 90 degrees and it's made for only an inside mount. As a result, when it's open, it's sort of a sitting duck to get pushed beyond 90 degrees and I'm worried it's life will be cut short by cracking the plastic pieces that hold the metal hinges (i.e. ... kids roughhousing and someone pushes into it when it's open ...). The second picture is a close-up of the plastic pieces that hold the metal hinges. To address that concern, we initially wanted to mount it just outside the hallwall walls (so the mounting hardware would actually be on the living room walls). The outside mount we desired would have allowed the gate to open all the way back and be flush with the left wall you can see in the picture. We were going to put "bumper" pads on the gate so wall would not get damaged if gate bumped against it. However, to accomplish all of this, we needed a 2"x2" piece of wood to use for the right side of the mounting hardware (for things to line up) and we didn't have time to get that wood and stain it and varnish it, so we just installed it with the inside mount. Sometimes I regret not taking the extra time doing the outside mount. Plan ahead and do what works best for your family. Yes, I would recommend it to a friend and I still gave it 5 stars. Just consider what's mentioned above before you install.

Solid gate, looks good too

This is a solid gate, made of real wood and looks good too. We used this gate to block a large space (45 in) between rooms. Our one year old daughter can hang on it and it doesn't move. I do like this gate and I'm getting another for the top of our stairs. However, it could use improvement. The latch mechanism can be defeated by simply lifting up the side of the gate that opens. Our daughter has not figured this out yet, but I may have to improvise a solution at some point. The installation was not too difficult, if you disregard some of the instructions. I am an Engineer and even I found some parts of the instructions unworkable, so I had to improvise. Also, the screws provided are worthless and several broke - in half - during installation. I ended up purchasing stainless steel ones to replace the cheap alloy screws provided. Anyway, it's a solid gate that can expand to cover a good range of widths. However, once installed you can not expand or contract the gate. It's a fixed width after installation. The gate comes in two pieces and you line up the pieces to the appropriate width. This can cause the spindles to align much differently than the photos shows. It's not a problem, just don't believe all the pictures you see.

Could be better

The gate is on and it's serving the purpose. However, the instructions are pathetically written and wrong. Don't follow them. Don't screw the metal brackets on the sections before you measure the opening. The hinges are flimsy and the whole gate could've been designed better and not have a huge overlap of one section over the other. The system to open the gate is really badly designed. Not well thought out at all. It's very hard to open even for an adult. Not very handy and not very practical if you have stuff on your hand and try to open it. In other words, for the amount of money that it costs, you would think that they could give you something better.
