Awful!I do not have a baby at my house 24/7; I am a grandmother of 1 and a mother of 3 (2 of whom are 11 and 13). I have bought 4 of these gates in the past 6 months. The first two broke within a week of having them. I had assumed it was due to my daughter being careless and purchased another one. The last two that I purchased, however, taught me otherwise. I was putting the first one in place and it broke at the hinge on the main part of the gate! These things are VERY poorly made and most definitely NOT worth wasting your money on. I would post a picture of the broken piece, but the website won't even upload it (it's been spinning for several minutes now!)

Horrible Durability! would rate 0 stars if I couldI bought this gate a few months ago from Walmart. It has not held up at all. Just from regular use the medal piece to lock it in place has come almost completely unscrewed which causes it to come unlatched all on its own. I saw a review that said they had used this gate for seven years, there is no way mine would last that long. It has all but fallen apart and I haven't even had it six months. Not to mention the fact that it doesn't even get used all that often. Very cheap and horrible durability. I went to target and paid a dollar more for the munchkin brand of the same gage and it works amazing! I would never recommend this gate to anyone. My suggestion would be to go buy the munchkin brand gate that is the same design as this one. It is much more durable and will last much longer.

The new gate is awfulI bought the latest gate that expands to 42”. They changed the way you “lock” the gate in position and IT DOESNT WORK!! I just wasted my money on this now stupid gate. Will NEVER buy another one with this “feature” again.
PLEASE GO BACK TO THE ORIGINAL WAY OF SECURING THE GATE. Worst idea EVER!
Oh yes. I had to give it one star otherwise it wouldn’t let me post. But really No stars on. This new gate is that bad.

great child proofing gate.Thank you evenflo for making such a great product! not only is it easy to install it looks great. perfect for baby/toddler and even pet proofing. i would highly recommend this to any parent who is looking for a gate that is sturdy, strong and secure without being worried that your childs fingers will get caught etc. the holes are large enough for the babies fingers not to get caught but not big enough for them to get their hands stuck. these are the things parents worry about mostly. if you are in the market for a new affordable gate i say go for it. you'll be as pleased as i am.

Great for doorway, but not for open stairwayThe product works great for a doorway! After installation, you can open it one handed. To close, you’ll probably need two hands, but with a bit of experience can do it one handed. It is very sturdy in a doorway, infants and animals can’t push it over or open it. Height is just below doorknob level - cats can jump over it.
Product needs sturdy frame with straight edges. Two plastic bumpers on each of both ends are about 5” and 27-1/2” from the floor. These must touch the opening width at nearly the exact same distance from the opposite end. For example, a stairway post that is not flat cannot be used to mount this product.
Oddly, the instructions are printed on the box, so it is hard to save the directions.

No directions!!As mentioned in previous post, the gates have no instructions. I consider myself to be a guy that works well with his hands. Many years experience as a electrician and as a Telecom installer, so putting things together, is my thing. Having had previous experiences with the evenflo gate products, I feel comfortable in saying that you really have to be gentle to avoid damaging the gates. So without clear directions I'm hesitant to push too hard on some of the parts, leaving me confused. The older gates mechanism was clear this new gate , not so much. If you're really interested in customer satisfaction, you would at least provide directions in English. No videos available, just poor customer service. The overall reviews of this product all express the same concerns , that no clear information is available for installing your gates. Please fix the problem!
