I purchased this gate for 2 purposes. (1) to keep the dogs from roaming the house when we are not home, and (2) to put at the top of the stairs during home group so small kids stay safe. This gate does NOT fit on a standard door, so there went keeping the the dogs in/out of bedrooms.
As far as putting the gate at the top of the stairs once a week. Forget it! The gate does not slide open easily, so trying to get it to the right length so you can secure it is a challenge all in itself. When you do have it expanded and against the walls, Dont count on it staying! The latch is cheap plastic (like the rest of the gate) and the gate will probably shift before you can secure it. Taking the gate down is a pain to. There is no such thing as gently lift and pull to unlatch. I'll obviously be returning the gate today. Not sure how this would work for people who are using hardware to secure it, but I purchased this to be able to use for multiple purposes and in diffrent places throughout my house. NOT worth the purchase if you don't plan on using hardware. I can't give a review for the gate if hardware is in place, but it still won't fit any door in my house, so I'd be returning it anyway.
