Holds up to abuse well...
I love these gates, they are inexpensive and last through almost anything. I am a mom to 4 boys so you know they get plenty of abuse in my house, they are climbed over (by my older boys) and bumped into all the time. They even work well for the puppy until they are tall enough to jump over them. I own 2 of these gates to block my kitchen. They keep my 2 yr old out from under my feet which I LOVE! My suggestion is when putting it in your doorway make sure to use the right amount of notches before pushing it down. IF you don't do enough it won't stay put, just move it one or two more and it should be close to fitting perfect. DON'T Force the wooden bar down if it is too tight just move it back a notch this will prevent breakage. YIPPY for Mommies sanity EVERYWHERE!

I bought this gate to keep my small dog out of certain rooms, had a gate like this 36 years ago when I had my son and it was better constructed than this one. I know how to use these gates and i had it set on the right measurement for the doorway and when I closed it, one of the bars broke in half. Very cheap wood. Took this one back to the store and ordered the more expensive model. Hopefully it will be a better grade of wood.

Baby/Dog gate

Purchased this gate to use on our stairway, but did not fit correctly. It's difficult to figure out how to lock the gate into place from the directions included, so I had to turn to Google.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Baby Gate that is not so Kid Friendly

This gate has a plastic center that is more forgiving for accidents than the standard wood gate. It is also very sturdy due to the pressure lock that holds it in place. I have used the same gate with all of my children and love it. In fact...I just bought another one, not for myself, but for a shower gift for a friend that is expecting her first baby. Great product.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Baby Gate

Nice gate if you dont have to step over....For me having a 9 year old and myself being only 5'1" with a 10month old baby its hard to get over these things. I prefer the ones with the option to open the little door. The price is cheaper but the materials are cheap and if you use it to much it will end up warping.

This is good for pets too.

I bought this baby gate with two minature dachshunds in mind rather than an actual baby. I was afraid that they would knock up against it during their rough housing and it would go flying but it hasn't so far. It is alot more sturdy than it looks so that is a good thing. Also, as far as price goes you really can't beat it. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a cheap way to contain a small child or small pets.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good but not perfect

This baby gate is good and it is reasonably priced. However, it does get stuck a little bit when I use it sometimes. It fits in our all hallway nice and serves it's purpose though. It's sturdy and won't fall down, which is the purpose of the baby gate in our home.

Evenflo Position & Lock Gate is a great value.

I bought a couple of these gates, and couldn't be happier with my purchase. A baby gate doesn't have to be fancy it just has to keep babies safe, and that is exactly what this one does. It has a great price point, which I always love. Raising kids is not cheap, but with inexpensive quality products like this it certainly makes things easier. The only issue I had with my gates is that it peeled the paint off my walls where the rubber pads were. So if you live in a cheaply painted apartment like I used to just be concious of that.

Overall, it's a great product that will keep your babies safe and a smile on your face.  

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great for Price

I actually bought this for my new puppy to help keep her in one spot in the kitchen while not at home.. this has been great and works wonders.. I have had no issues with it at all.. For the price its pretty durable to a puppy... Its easy to set up and take down and store it.

This helps the puppy not feel caged in all the time in her crate and can still see whats going on .

To get what you pay for with the Evenflo Position & Lock Gate

I have to say that when I bought this at Sears, I thought it was a price mistake of $11.99.  Other gates were at least double the cost and not nearly as nice looking.  It's easy to use without having to assemble or screw anything in but that is pretty much it.  It doesn't hold up really well, unless you have to solid walls to keep it in place. (I tried it on a stairwell)  For now, I have kept in down, but maybe I will go back to it.

This gate has lasted us through several kids.  It is durable, easy to use and install in a doorway (and easy to take out when you have guests) and can accomodate most doorways.

My 2 year old Broke This Gate

This gate was fine for a little bit but my 2 year old was able to break this gate apart very easily. I had to spend 2 hours cleaning up the wood to make sure he didn't get any splinters or anything. My son is not a big child and he should not have been able to break this gate. I now I have to go to the store a buy something different which is ridiculous! I do NOT suggest buying this gate at all. Buyer beware!!

Perfect gate at the perfect price!

 

I've had my gate for 7 years now (2 kids born at different times) and it has been up with everything from kicking, pets running into it, kids trying to take it down, and even clumsy me walking or running into it.  This thing is perfect!  I've taken it with us when traveling and used it to keep the baby away from harm.  It fits in doorways, hallways, staircases, etc.  Very easy and simple to install.  Since they're having a buy 1 get 1 1/2 this week I intend to buy 2 more!  =D
