Product Description

Product Description

The innovative design of the Safety 1st Perfect Fit Gate ensures a secure fit in entryways. Our unique auto fit extension on the side of the gate allows it to conform to irregular width walls on either the top or the bottom portion of the gate. For easy operation, the gate also features a complete control top handle that lets you lock, release, and adjust as needed.

From the Manufacturer

The Safety 1st Perfect Fit gate showcases a sleek and contemporary design, with solid no climb pannels. This gate also features an easy to use 3 in 1 lock-release-adjust handle mechanism. The Safety 1st exclusive auto-fit feature helps secure the gate in almost any doorway. This gate offers the convenience of pressure or hardware mount options and can be used at the top or bottom of the stairs. This gate stands 26 inches.

Customer Reviews

We used screws, not pressure mount.
S. Weinstein
Every time you walk through the swing gate you have to readjust it, which makes in impossible to open and close with one hand.
mom from MA
They should not break unless you try to adjust the gate too tightly and put excessive pressure on them.

I purchased this gate because I really wanted a pressure mounted gate to use at the bottom of the stairs but I had read some reviews about pressure mounted gates sometimes failing so I figured with this gate we at least had the option to hardware mount if needed.

When installing, we encountered a few problems. First, we have a narrow stairway with a baseboard on one side and a railing on the other side. We found that, although the gate is supposed to automatically adjust to acommodate baseboards, it just wasn't as secure unless we tilted it a little. It did fit nice and snug if we lifted it off the baseboard. But then it was hitting the top of the railing on the other side of the wall. We finally got it to just the right positioning to get a nice secure fit while pressure mounted. But each time we fit the gate in place it takes some finagling to fit it in just right.

Which brings me to my next problem. The other major downside to this gate is that it is really designed to be more of a barrier than a gate. And I guess this is my fault for not fully researching before buying (which is why I'm writing this review, to help prepare others) but when I think of a gate, I think of something that will swing or slide open. And this gate does have that feature - but only when hardware mounted. When pressure mounted,this is more of a temporary wall than a gate. If you plan on using the pressure mounting, then you will have to completely remove the gate each time you want to go through it. Our stairs are high traffic areas. It was a total pain to physically remove and replace the gate every time we wanted to go up or down (especially while holding a baby). After just an hour in place, family members were "jumping" the gates to use the stairs. Not what I'd envisioned.

Verified Purchase
I've seen just about every kind of pressure mounted gate. They all suffer from one or more usability problems. This gate solves them all. I bought one to use at my in-laws' over Christmas and couldn't wait to buy another one to replace the pressure mount gate we currently use at home.

This gate is locked and unlocked by raising and lowering an ergonomic handle on the top-center of the gate. Pulling the handle up will shorten the gate slightly, allowing it to be removed. Pressing it down will expand the gate and lock it place. The handle can only be pulled up AFTER releasing a locking catch. Operation is simple and secure.

The size of the gate is adjusted for your doorway using the same handle. When the handle is in the "open" position it can be raised further after releasing a second locking catch. This ingenious design allows the gate to be adjusted once and then operated over and over again without readjusting it. Furthermore, adjusting the size is virtually automatic. Just raise the handle to the adjustment position, slide the panel by hand until it touches both walls, then press the handle down in two distinct steps (to prevent adjusting it too tight). The gate is then ready to use, and should never require adjustment again.

Next we come to a common problem with pressure mount gates - non-parallel walls. Lesser gates are often difficult to adjust tightly on both the top and bottom of the gate, leaving a loose and dangerous installation. The Perfect Fit gate solves this problem with a spring loaded arm that contacts the wall in two places (top and bottom) but pivots in the middle at it's single point contact with the gate panel.

23 of 24 people found the following review helpful By concerned mum on February 7, 2005
I got 2 of these gates because there are no holes in it for little fingers and toes to climb up and it had the option of being hardware or pressure mounted. However the main reason I got this gate was that it has a feature that allows it to fit into the odd spaces where there is molding and baseboards. It has a special locking feature for when you find the perfect fit for your space. It's a nice tight fit that supposedly can't be moved.

However after opening and closing the gate 4 or 5 times I found that it moved and had to be constantly re-adjusted. This got so tiresome that I went out and bought 2 new gates to replace these.

I am completely satisfied with this gate. The installation was so very easy and my husband had it installed within 10 minutes. I love the fact that it is a smooth surface and the baby can't climb up it. It opens easily and the self-leveling side makes installation with moulding easy. We also have the First Years All Clear Gate which is good too, but more expensive. But personally, I like the look of the Perfect Fit Gate better and it is definately easier to use !!! I would recommend this to anyone who has kids.

We bought this gate to place at the bottom of our staris so our 15 month old would not climb up. But it has never remained in place and falls with the slightest touch. No matter how hard I tried to apply pressure to secure a snug fit against the banister and the wall it never worked. I do not recommend this gate. Waste of $.

This seemed like such a nice gate when I bought it-- I loved the fact that it didn't have a lattice or holes for my son to use as grips to climb up with, and I liked the way it looked in general-- but as soon as I got it installed I realized it was a mistake. I have the same problem others have mentioned here with the gate refusing to stay the same width after it has supposedly been locked. Every time I open and close it, the one of the sliding panels inches slightly outward, so that by the 3rd or 4th time it's been open and shut I have to readjust it again because it won't open at all, which is REALLY annoying. It might work well as a pressure-mounted gate, but as a swinging gate, it's next to worthless.

Also, did anyone else notice that the screws they included were really cheap, and started to strip very easily?
