Awesome Gate

I got this one and the Dream Baby swing gate in black. I needed 2 gates but didn't know which to get so got both and figured I'd keep one and exchange the other for another like the one I kept but I ended up keeping both. This one is truly handsfree and I have it in the doorway of my 17month old's room. He can't climb it and can't open and thats good enough for me. Its super easy to open, just push down on the pedal and pull or push the gate. It only comes in white though. Besides that, its awesome. Value gets 4 stars since I didn't really shop around. Durability, 4 stars since I haven't had it long and features, 4 stars because it doesn't have anything special. Its super easy to set up, I didn't even need the instructions but then I'm forever putting stuff together so it was just common sense for me. I would recommend this to anyone with kids or pets. Its low though so if you're really tall or have acrobatic pets, you may want a taller gate. Personally I love it and will most likely get more for other areas of the house.

I really like this gate. My only complaint is that I wish the opening was wider by a few inches. I have twins and they both love it too. One just talks to it. The other has tested it thoroughly, and it is childproof. My baby boy likes to stand on the lever and try to open it, but it won't budge.

Stay away from the Regalo easy step. We picked up the The First Years - Hands Free Gate as a replacement to flimsy easy step gate. It costs a little more and the extension is sold separate but it is secure and durable. You get what you pay for and with The First Years - Hands Free Gate you are paying for better quality and security for your child

I bought this gate because my brother & sister-in-law recommended it. We are ordering another one for another doorway. Love the hands-free feature.

We replaced our 17 year old Fisher Price gate that finally gave out with this one. Could not be happier. Once mounted properly against the walls, the gate closes firmly. If you do not properly adjust the pressure mounts, than it will not latch. Follow directions people and you will be 100% satisfied.

  • A. Hard to do but I suppose a very determined large dog might try. Dogs are very smart. You are alpha and have to teach dog NOT to touch the gate if you have this concern. Its your gate, not the dogs. Most dogs do not have a clue how to open this gate.

  • A. I don't think so. It takes a certain amount of foot pressure. I don't think paw pressure is enough to open it since their weight is distributed differently than a humans.

  • A. I don't think so - I don't have any pets, but it requires my full weight practically to open. The pedal is also just about the size of the ball of my foot, so your dog would have to come down on it perfectly WHILE pushing open the gate.

  • A. it would be very unlikely for a dog to be able to open this gate by jumping on the pedal. The release is outfitted with spring tension. It is actually difficult to open if you are not standing up and putting all of our wieght on it.

  • A. Maybe if you walk on your hands, you could open it with your hands, but since the foot pedal is at the bottom of the gate, it is much easier to use your foot especially since you will many times have your hands full of stuff when opening and closing it.

  • A. If you want to bend down and press down on the pedal with your hand real hard. The purpose of this gate is because it is hands free.

  • A. It only uses a foot pedal. It's so easy, you don't need to use hands, If you are in a wheel chair, or do not have the use of your feet from any reason, this is not the gate for you.
