"Great for narrow staircase…"
We have a very narrow staircase so had trouble finding a stair gate to fit. This one not only fits but doesn't have the bar at the bottom when open, so no tripping hazard.
So pleased with it - strong, sturdy, easy to use and not too bulky.Read moreLess

Great for extra wide openings. Once the gate is fully extended it loses a bit of rigidity.Read moreLess
"We have several of the metal ones. They are excellent,…"
We have several of the metal ones. They are excellent, and strong.
One gate was put out of service when I fell over and hit it; the plastic wallmounting snapped (and I had a sore knee for a while) but Lindam were very fast at getting us replacement mountings at reasonable cost.
We also bought some small clips from a camping supplies, which meant we could clip the gate back against a wall if not in use; very handy as it then didn't swing outwards.Read moreLess
"We got the wooden version whice fits in well with…"
We got the wooden version whice fits in well with decor (stands out less than metal ones). It has an easy to use lever to open and shut it. It has no floor bar so is easy to put at the top and bottom of the stairs (nothing to trip over) but this means it needs fitting to the wall and banister. It is easy to assemble and fit.
The only downside to this stair gate is that it is an 'easy release' gate - which means you can lift it off easily. This is great if it is going to be used at a grandparents house and they don't want a gate up all the time but we find it a bit of a pain as an everyday gate - it comes off in my hands if I'm a bit heavy handed and lift the gate up too far.Read moreLess
"We got the metal gate as it gets a good…"
We got the metal gate as it gets a good review from Which. It is a brilliant, simple and sturdy, no frills gate which can fit gaps 70cm to 102cm. We have a complicated opening on our stairs with a very wide opening and an extra bit of wall on one corner and this still fits safely. The only down sides are that it is a little fiddly to fit and is screwed to the wall so isn't easily moved. However, I can't even hang a picture straight and I still managed to fit the gate alone. Being screwed makes it perfect for wonky banisters. Finally, as there is no floor bar there is no risk of tumbling down the stairs, bleary eyed, with the baby! and the cheapest gate I found, what more can you ask for?Read moreLess
