Good, it was well packaged, undamaged and all parts
were there. Easy to open, undamaged and well packaged. Really easy to assemble and simple visual
instructions. Very easy to fit,
the instructions and minimal parts made this so simple. It took us ten minutes
to fit this gate. Easy to use for us, but
not so easy for my daughter which is good. The latch is sturdy and too complex
for her little hands whereas she found the last gate easy to open. This is much
better. The thin step trip hazard safety part is good. I have two children and am often carrying one
and unable to look where I am going. It is a nice feature. The Frame is really
good. The adhesive patches really make a
difference. It doesn’t budge at all no matter how hard my daughter tries.
The secure tech visual indicator worked well very simple green/red. It does
take a knack to try to remember how to open it but this increases the secure
feeling. Really sturdy and great
quality. It’s more expensive
than some on the market but then it will last longer. We have had other
gates that have been broken within 48 hours by our children. I loved the sturdy nature and the fact that it does
not budge an inch. With escape artists like our daughter this is brilliant. I
would buy this as the best one I have tried. I would recommend as it is secure and will last forever! The
safety latch is so sturdy that my daughter cannot open the gate which she has
been able to do with others. The gate does not move on the wall because of the
adhesive patches which adds to the security and for once we have not had to
readjust a gate or reattach after a tantrum. Elizabeth

Perfectly adequate, product was well secured in the
packaging. Relatively little wasted space/materials. Initially confusing
to get the gist of the meaning of the pictorial instructions, but once in the
flow it all came naturally. This was
surprisingly easy to fit. The wheels to adjust the fit were incredibly
useful – much easier and much less painful than using a spanner to tighten
bolts. Also made it much easier to adjust the gate properly to make sure
everything in the lock mechanism was aligned correctly. Took around 20 minutes to fit.
Significantly less time than it took to install the other stair gate we
currently have in our home. It can be a little tricky occasionally to
work the lock mechanism, but again it’s much easier than other gates I’ve used,
and I would rather it was slightly difficult than too easy, giving children the
potential to figure out how to open it.The this step over bar is definitely useful. Whilst there is still
a bar there, it is much lower profile than other gates. In several weeks
of use, I have not tripped or stubbed my toe on this bar. Also, because I
am using this gate to block off the kitchen as opposed to at the top of stairs,
it fits very nicely with the carpet border and so doesn’t really cause a raised
surface at all. The U shape frame and 4 pressure points was essential for us. We
live in rented accommodation and so we are very reluctant to drill into walls
unnecessarily. We would never purchase a gate that did not fit by
pressure. The visual indicator works
very well indeed and was very easy to align correctly during
installation. My wife did mention that it would have made more sense to
her if the colours were reversed, so green when open and red when securely
locked, but we do understand the reasoning behind green representing ‘safe’.It can occasionally be tricky, but is
still much easier than the other gate we have at home. I have never had
to put my child down in order to use two hands to open it when passing through,
and this is the main point for me. Re closing, this is very easy, and the
gate has a satisfying ‘clunk’ when locking the gate.My wife initially
thought the opening mechanism looked a little plastic and cheap when we removed
the gate from the packaging, but once it was installed in situ, she liked the
look of it. The mechanism feels solid and safe, and the wheels used to
install and adjust the gate are a much better idea then anything I’ve ever used
on a stair gate previously. Very happy overall with the quality of the
gate and would definitely recommend this product to friends. This was £5
more expensive than our other gate, but much better quality. Would have
been happy to pay the price, though I do think that if we had installed this
near our stairs, we would have required extensions and I think this could have
made it expensive overall. Definitely
liked the wheels used to install and adjust the lock. I hate using those
thin spanners to install products and, while I understand this is necessary on
the bottom bolts to ensure a good, solid fit, it was heaven to not have to
adjust the top with this thing! I would
consider buying it and would recommend it to anyone who asked my opinion of
stair gates.I would recommend as it is a good combination of price and
quality. Extensions could make it expensive, but still cheaper than other
models on the market, and I would definitely recommend it in terms of ease of
installation. Really can’t fault
it. Most of the salient points
have been covered in the questions above. But to reiterate, I am
incredibly happy with this product. Installation was quick and easy (once
I understood the instructions). I have never tripped over the floor bar,
nor have I stubbed my toe on it. I HAVE stubbed toes on the side bars,
but I cannot fault the product for this, that was all me! The lock
mechanism can be a little stiff, but I would much rather it was too difficult
than too easy, and I have never been unable to open or close the gate
one-handed. I am MUCH happier with this gate than with others I have
bought for elsewhere in my home. This product would likely be top of my
list if I had to buy another gate in future. Jamie

I was very impressed with the product when it
arrived. It had clear picture on the box of the product inside. Packaging was nice and clear as to what was inside and also the box was well
sealed. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. It was very easy to fit and very secure once
fitted. It was the easiest baby gate to fit that I have ever used
(and we have had a few designs over the years). I think in total it took about 15 minutes to
fit. The gate is very easy to use although
the slide bar to open it can be a bit stiff.I really like the thin step
over bar. Unlike other gates we have you don’t have to even think about
tripping on the bar at all. Both my children like that they haven’t
clipped their toes on the bar. It blends really well into the carpet
so you really don’t notice it at all. The U shaped frame with 4 pressure points
was very quick and easy to put up and a great bonus that there would be no
evidence left behind if/when we come to move it. The visual indicator worked very well and easy
to use. As much as I liked that the gate, the bar that you slide to open the gate
is very stiff. I sometimes struggle to open it with one hand which can be
a pain when carrying as baby and trying to open it. My little girl who is
4 can, on a good day, open it (which she is allowed to do). I was hoping
that after using the gate for a number of weeks that it might ease slightly but
it hasn’t. I’m guessing it is this way as a safety feature but personally
I do find it to be difficult sometimes. I am very impressed with the quality of the gate. It is very solid
as you would hope. I think it is
very good value for money. We have purchased many gates in the past and I
wouldn’t hesitate to spend £30.00 to buy another one of these gates should we ever
need another one. I really do
like the flat bar to the floor. As much as I am aware of the floor bars
on our other gates, I still clip my toes on them from time to time. With
this gate though, you don’t even have to think about it. I also really like
that the gate swings back to the closed position when you let the gate go so
there is no chance of being impaled on it if it left open (I have done this on
other gates). I would purchase as it is very easy to use and install and user
friendly. I’ve already been recommending to people. I’ve been so impressed
with it so why wouldn’t I share my views. I think had the opening bar not been quite so stiff I would have been
more than happy to give 5/5. Overall I am very impressed
with the product. I would definitely recommend it to others and I
wouldn’t think twice about buying one should I ever need another. It’s
really easy to install, no mess in doing so and it does the job as you need it
too. The flat to the floor bar is a great feature that makes this gate, in my
opinion, a very safe option to buy. Neither of my children aged 4 and 1
have hurt their feet or tripped on the bar so it’s a win win for me. Sam Davies – Sophie and
