Before you know it, your sweetly immobile infant will be a non-stop exploring machine. Take steps now to make your home safer for your little adventurer. The Evenflo SimpleStep Pressure Gate will make doorways and stairs inaccessible to your child while providing a convenient design that makes life easier for parents. This gate is ideal for children ages 6 to 24 months and is recommended for use in doorways or at the bottom of stairways.

With the one-hand Slide-Loc mechanism, you simply squeeze the handle and slide back to open.
Easy to Use and Install
The Evenflo SimpleStep Pressure Gate is a sturdy, lightweight metal gate in a neutral color that blends in with any décor. It is 30 inches tall and expands from 29 inches to 39-1/2 inches with the included extension panel. Featuring a a pressure-mounting system, the gate is designed for quick and easy installation: no tools, no permanent hardware to damage your walls. The pressure-mounting system also allows for more versatile installation at stairway banisters or other unusual openings.

The gate is just as easy to use as it is to install. It easily opens with a special one-handed "Slide-Loc" mechanism: simply squeeze and slide the handle to open the gate. The gate also swings open, making it much easier for baby-toting parents to use. It then latches shut with a simple push.

Super Safety Features
The Evenflo SimpleStep Pressure Gate's red/green indicator shows whether the gate is properly locked, to give you additional peace of mind. Its slats are less than three inches apart, which is the recommended spacing for safety. To maximize the gate's safety features, make sure it is installed less than three inches from the floor. It is also recommended for use at the bottom of stairways only; the top of the stairway should be cordoned with a hardware-mounted gate.

This is a great product and I highly recommend it to all parents.
Alessandra F. Chamorro
It works, but is more difficult to open and close, I usually need 2 hands to operate it, and don't always have 2 available.
T. Kelly
When the gate was opened, the unit flexed so much that it either fell out of the door way or couldn't be closed.

Here's a word of warning to anyone who wants to use this gate: the online product details say that the gate fits 29 inches through 37.5, but the assembly instructions show that the gate without the extension fits 29 to 33.5 inches and with the extension fits 35 to 37.5 inches, thus there is an 1.5 inch gap (33.5 to 35 inches)that isn't covered.

I tried to get it to fit my 34 inch door opening but the pressure points were restricted from unscrewing that far because it maxed out at 33.5 inches or maybe a little less. I tried using small blocks to narrow the area but that did not work well. This less than desirable workaround caused the gate to keep falling down, so I had to return it.

My question is: why design a gate that has an 1.5 inch gap in coverage???

This really is a great gate--I disagree with the 1 star reviews. I bought this gate to keep our dogs contained on our deck and it is perfect. It is the only gate that is tall enough but not too tall, is pressure mounted, and is metal. Yes, there is a bar at the bottom, but the only solution to there being a bar is the ramp of the First Years Hands Free gate--and a foot pedal to release the door won't do me much good with two big dogs who jump a bit--they would figure it out! Also, the lock/release is a bit stiff, but I would rather it be a little difficult than too easy!

Over all, I do not feel that this product deserves the bad reviews. This is a good gate.

I believe the other reviewer is mistaken. I too thought that the gate was bent at the top when we got one (two of them actually). Then I realized that the gate is manufactured like this on purpose. By having the top of the gate be wider than the bottom you can force the gate into the opening which keeps the top of the gate very snug in the doorway. I really like this feature. Since there is no top bar (when the gate is open) this also means the gate has no wobble when it's open. This and the version of the gate with the opener on the bottom (that you step on) are quick solid gates that I would recommend. I will, however, point out that the other review is right, the instructions do not make it clear that gate being "too wide" at the top is by design (and quite a good design I might add).

Just like the first reviewer, I thought there was a mistake in the manufacturing of this gate since there was a two inch gap from the swing door to the latch. I called the evenflo 800# and was quickly informed that the gap closes once the gate is installed correctly using the pressure mounted pins. Sure enough, once I tighted the pressured mounted pins, the gate door latched correctly. I do agree with the other reviewers that the swing door is diffucult to open with one hand...not sure if that will improve with practice. I haven't decided if I'm going to keep this gate or not. I didn't want to spend $70+ on a swing gate and this seemed to be a good economical option.

UPDATE: I untighten the pressure mounted pins on the top to make sure there was a gap between the gate and latch of 1/8" (per instructions) and this has made the gate easier to open. After practicing, I am able to open the gate with one hand. I would change my rating to 4 stars if I could since I think this is a great gate for the price and does everything I needed it to do! I have decided not to return the gate.

It keeps the little ones out of the kitchen. Very easy to install; put the screws in the four holes put the gate in place and turn the knobs on the screws until enough tension is created with the door frame. It took 3 or 4 days to get the hang of operating it one handed. You push the buttons in on both sides and slide the mechanism backwards. The metal is a little flimsy and can probably be bent if enough pressure is applied. Should not be a concern unless you have big dogs. A child of 4 or 5 may be able to bend it. Ours are 15 months and 1 month, so it should do the job for a long time. Excellent product as long as it holds up over the long run.

Overall this is a good gate. I use it for a puppy, so it's a much more different experience for me than using it as a "baby gate".

The intstalation was easy. At first I thought the gate was broken becuase the latch didn't meet and the upper end stuck out farther than the lower ends. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE THAT WAY. I just want to make that clear. When you fasten it to the wall, the pressure pushes the top together so that it can latch.

Use of the product was a litlle hard. The latch requires you to push in two buttons (pinch them between your index and thumb) pull it to the side (left or right depending on a few things) WHILE holding the buttons. And pushing it forward or towards you. It sounds hard. And at first is. But you'll get the hang of it. Using 2 hands if you can makes it easier.

Quality of the product is great. It has withstood a lot. But keep in mind I have a 5 pund puppy not a 10+ pound child.

One other thing I MUST note is that there is a bar along the bottom that touches the floor. It is VERY easy to trip over. And when you do, it hurts. Don't let this factor alone deter you from buying this gate. It's a good and relativly inexpensive product and one of the only decent pressure mount gates out there that I could find.
