I tightened and retightened the screws in the plastic hardware however the hardware is not durable and the plastic pieces eventually cracked. These parts should be metal and not plastic. I do love the gates so I decided to fix this issue permanently. I went to the local home improvement store and bought some 1 3/4" screws and nylon lock nuts to prevent it from coming off. I drilled holes through the gates and bolted them together (see photos). This will lock the gates in place and prevent any unwanted "sliding" left or right. You can rest easy that the gates will never fail after doing this simple fix. I still highly recommend the gates but be aware that you should check and recheck the gates every so often for loosening of the plastic retaining pieces if you choose not to bolt these together.
Very sturdy gates and they look great.Read more ›
I can see what other reviewers are saying about the latch - when you press the blue buttons it doesn't feel like they are actually being depressed, but they are doing something, and that's what allows the latch to be opened easily. It's a little difficult to do at first, but I tell people who come to the door, "press the blue button even though it doesn't seem like it's doing anything" and then they can get it. You only have to press one side of the button also, and it still works. It's difficult, yes almost impossible for kids to do, and that's what makes this gate so great - I've never had any kid be able to figure it out, even the most accomplished escape artists. This is important, because the stairs my gate is guarding go right down to a front door that leads to a very busy street. Not to be overly dramatic, but my business and many children's lives have depended upon this gate and it has never let me down.
As for the reviewer that said they installed this gate correctly yet a 2 year old was able to "rattle" it open...? I'm sorry, I have to say I don't think the gate was actually installed very well. I've had 2 year old boys on up to 8 year old boys go barreling into this gate and hit it with their full body weight at full speed. Nothing. Nada. Nobody gets through this gate.
Once I knew I had the right adjustment, I did have to adjust the bottom tightening screw and tighten it down REALLY hard with a pair of pliers.Read more ›

Great gate! This is exactly what we needed at the top of our staircase. It has a hinge that allows the gate to bend. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Sam States

Nice gate but nowhere in the description in the product did it mention you MUST mount into a wood stud for use at the top of stairs. I would not have purchased had I known. Read morePublished 4 days ago by J. Mesick
My five year old figured out how to open this gate. It looks good, is sturdy, and was easy to install. Too easy to open though if a five year old can figure it out.Published 7 days ago by Amber
