There is a lot to like about Summer Infant Walk-Thru gate, but it also has some (in my eyes) serious drawbacks.
+ Installation is relatively painless + Sturdy construction - this is a product I am confident in leaving in place without fear of accidents + Nice appearance - it certainly does not look cheap + Has the ability to adapt to span openings from 28-48" - this is the SPAN that the entire gate covers "from rail-to-wall"
Areas for improvement
- The gate opening is just not wide enough - I dread trying to go through the gate with suitcases or anything of width. This is different than the gates span ... what I am referring to is the actual fixed opening that you walk through. - The catch mechanism sticks into the opening by about 2" - It is positioned perfectly to catch onto clothes and pockets. I see things getting caught and ripped in our immediate future. - For some reason our gate does not automatically close.
Final Verdict - While I can't give this gate a hearty recommendation I am still not convinced that it is not the best baby gate on the market. I know that sounds crazy, but I have not found a product that I don't have major complaints with - so with that
