    I bought this gate to keep our 2 puppies off the rug in our formal living room until they are house broken. It's working great.

    Using this baby gate for a tea cup puppy.

    We purchased this gate because it was extra wide for the opening we needed larger than a regular opening of a door. This one expands which is what we needed to keep our little tea-cup Chihuahua confined when we were busy or out and to help with paper training. She weighs 2 pounds and is 12 weeks old, so she is very tiny so the mesh is what we needed to keep her in one area. I know these are for babies, but this little one is our baby and we don't want her hurt. It works great and was much more reasonable than what you would find at a pet store or the wooden slats that are too wide, and she would walk right through the slats. Good quality and very sturdy. Very happy with it.

    I purchased two of these gates for two large doorways in our home. I am very satisfied with these gates! I originally bought two different gates from another store and did not like them. That's when I found these.. I got two for the price of just one from the other store! Anyways, I've used these everyday for the last four months or so, and they've held up great so far. I even have a cat who jumps it constantly and has yet to rip the fabric, which I was concerned about that with buying the fabric. These gates were super easy to assemble and install and that is a plus! Also, you'll get a good laugh when your little one presses their face against the mesh!

    It's hight is 27". I have a temporary structure now that is 20" high and can just step over. Is there an easy release mechanisim to open gate so you can get in and out?

    • No release mechanism...when you put it up, it is to stay. We have 3 of these gates and step over them quite often throughout the day with no problem.

    • You would have to release the top tension rod, then release the bottom tension rod, but then the whole thing would be down all in one piece. The tension on the rods is released by unscrewing the rods slightly. I am about 5 ft. tall and I can step over the gate while holding onto the doorway framing. I do not step over the gate while holding baby.

    • No, the gate is essentially two pressure rods. So if you need to through the doorway a lot, you'll have to remove the whole gate or step over it.

    • You have to twist the poles to get them loose and take the thing out of the doorway all together.

    • We tighten only the top tension rod and not the bottom. That way it only takes a slight turn of the top rod and the gate can be pushed out of the way enough to pass thru the doorway. If you're strong enough you can also put sideways tension on the rod and it will come loose just long enough to pass thru and resecure it to the wall.

    • I am 5"8 and have no problems stepping over it. My sister is 5 ft. and can over it fairly easy. No there is really no way to release it to open and close back up. It basically works like a shower curtain rod. You make it to the size you need then slide it down to tighten. It is very sturdy though. The baby stands and leans on it a lot and it has not budged.

    • No, the Soft n Wide gate is not designed to be opened/closed frequently. You may want to consider one of Evenflo's other gates that provide an easy latch mechanism such as the Easy Walk Through metal gate. To prevent injury we advise never stepping over a gate.

    • seems like the top and bottom can both be adjusted, i had a baseboard that stuck out and so the top and bottom were at different lengths and it worked great. Not sure if that would work in your situation, but i would bet that it does.

    • The ends that attach to walls, etc are exactly like shower/bath curtain rod. You just twist it until it's as tight as you want it. Not sure it will work on an angled wall but it works just like a bath rod. Hope that helps

    • The end where the gate attaches to the wall are rubber, so it has a little give, so it may work on a slightly angled wall.

    • The bars in the 4 sides are straight so I would not think that it will angle.
