The price is a little higher than some other barriers that are bigger and sturdier. Check out the North States 3-in-1 barrier; it's a bit sturdier and costs about 40-50 dollars less.
That said, considering the cost of the product it's annoyingly cheap on several important details. It comes with mounting hardware to attach it to the wall (which we need to do), but that hardware doesn't include wall anchors if you are installing (as we are) into drywall (we have a free-standing wood stove set away from a wall), though the instructions clearly state that anchors are needed for installation into drywall. With the product costing over $200, I'd have thought it would be possible to throw in 8 drywall anchors. More annoying still, the product is one bar short of complete -- it is sold with the last rail missing. If it's freestanding, this isn't a big issue (though it does make the gate a little less elegant), but for our setup this makes it impossible to attach the product to the wall (a HUGE danger, as the rail is very light and slides easily, and it is easy for our toddler to move it, i.e., to push it over to where he can reach through the bars and touch the hot stove). I'm sufficiently annoyed by the facts that (a) to buy just a single rail and have it shipped will cost me $[...] plus (b) it is not possible to order such a rail online -- I would have to call Kidco directly -- that I have bought a wooden dowel and plan to paint it and see if I can use it in place of a metal rod. However, having a (makeshift) wooden dowel in an expensive product intended to be used near a stove (ours isn't too near), and having to buy, paint, and cut a wooden dowel to make a $[...]+ product operational is rather annoying.

Beware if you purchase this. It comes with pre broken plastic parts that you cannot even remove to replace. Pretty much a waste of money.Published 24 days ago by jon lefebre
It fits perfectly around our fireplace and has kept the kids safe. It has withstood 2 years of being pulled and pushed on by kids and the installation sites have remained in tact. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kinda Crunchy
