Love the Gate

from Arkansas – Verified Buyer

The gate is great. The door works great. The gate closes on its own and stays open when I need it open. The only problem I have may be specific to my needs. I needed a long gate because my kitchen and living room are open concept and I needed to enclose the kitchen to keep the dogs contained therein. It has been great as it has held up; however it does not stay strong and it moves several inches. Full disclosure: the dogs jump up on it all the time. They are contributing to its movement. I have small dogs: a yorkie and a shih tuz. If they can make it move a child would be able to make it move as well. Like I said it is probably because the gate is so long. The gate is great and it has served all my needs and I would not be able to live without it.

I like it

from Hugo, MN – Verified Buyer

This looks really nice and I like the wall mounting on it. It didn't take long for my husband and I to set it up and now we can start the fire without worrying about our one year old. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because the gate didn't seem sturdy enough for our daughters habit of grabbing and shaking gates. My husband just put a screw in one of the bottom circle deals and screwed into the carpet.

Quality Product!

from Sauk Rapids, MN – Verified Buyer

I have owned one of the gates in my home for over 5 years and it has withstood heavy use. I have it set up across a wide doorway into my living room. I have children ages 10 mos. to 16 years old who walk through this several times a day. This newer one has a self closing gate which is awesome! I don't have to remind the children constantly to close the gate! It also fits across an awkward space easily since each joint can be set at multiple angles! I also love the way it attaches to the wall. It can be removed easily and quickly!

Fireplace gate

from Cottonwood, CA – Verified Buyer

My family and I love this gate. We had it for over 2 months and it has been a life saver. It keeps my 2 year old away from the sharp edges of the wood stove and it is very practical to install and also to use. Very happy with this purchase.

Use to keep Dogs and Baby separated. Easy Install, Good Quality, Sturdy in long span when secured on both ends Self Closing feature works well. Dogs are not able to open this latch...have had jailbreaks with the latch that opens from the bottom on other models.

Perfect for toddlers !

from New Jersey – Verified Buyer

Great safety features. I like that you have to pull the button and lift the door up to open it. Also very easy to install. We have it set up around our fire place in the living room. Highly suggested. Pros: Easy to install

Works great and looks good too!

from Abbeville, SC – Verified Buyer

We love this gate! It was easy to install, and we've had no trouble with the latch. Easy to open with plenty of room for a big guy to get through, and the auto close feature is a great safety bonus. We installed this gate around our fire place for our toddler. Since it will stay up for a long time, it was important that it not be an eyesore, and this gate fit the bill. It looks nice and doesn't impede the view of the fire place. We definitely recommend!

Great/versatile fence for large entrances (or hearth)

from BLOOMINGTON, IN – Verified Buyer

This was described as a hearth fence, but we bought it because we needed a fence for a divider between our kitchen and living room, which is not a doorway--but an open entrance. This works perfect. We slightly bend it in an accordian fold to fit. The wall attachments are great. The fence is sturdy. It's easy to put up/take down and stores easily. Very pleased! This was more affordable and much easier than fences with multiple extensions to try to get a larger width.
