Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for North States Heavy Duty Stairway Baby Gate, 26"-41". The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 3.80 stars, and the price range is $18.00-$28.00.

The trustworthy North States brand has yet again come out with a baby gate, but the Heavy Duty Stairway Baby Gate 26’’-41’’ is stronger than ever before. The white plastic baby gate fits stairways and doorways with an adjustable slide that is easy to remove and move to a new location on the go. The gate comes with the option to wedge between two strong surfaces, or a wall mount to drill into walls for stronger support for children or animals who may put their weight against it. The gate has the option of sliding to open, or swing open in either direction, giving the user the option of the easiest way to walk in or out, without having to jump over it.

Some consumers say the latch to open and close the gate gets stuck, which complicates going into and out of the gate when carrying heavy items, or even a small child. Others say the gate can rip out of the wall when pushed by a strong force if the mount is drilled into drywall rather than a wall stud.

With a honeycomb-like pattern allowing adults to peek through the gate and provide supervision, it blends in with any style of the household while ensuring that parents can rest easy that children or pets are staying exactly where they should be.

North States Heavy Duty Stairway Baby Gate, 26
It keeps my precious little son safe from the stairs and I can open it with one hand while holding him, which is all I was looking for.

The gate is grea , swings open so you don't have to step over, just make sure you screw it into the studs of the wall and not the dry wall or it'll come out.

Does the job keeping our 16 month old off the stairs, but the latch keeping it closed gets stuck sometimes, making it challenging to use it with one hand.
