Got one of these given by a mate, installed it the other night and would not recommend - you cannot open it with one hand, need two, which is a complete pain when carrying a baby, plates etc

There must be better out there

A lot of the reviews seem to say similar. I qas going to buy a couple but have changed my mind.

The way I see it, the harder it is to open, the safer it is

Mod & Ed

I've got these and have always found them to be fine, thanks op, have been looking for a couple more now we've moved to a larger house

Lovely - brilliant gate, have never had a problem opening our existing one with one hand.
Needed another gate for the stairs now little boy is up and running so thanks a lot - hot

Not if you're stood at the top of the stairs with a wriggling baby in your arms struggling to get through a safety gate. That's pretty unsafe IMO!

Common sense would say open the gate just slightly then pick the baby up in this scenario.
It's only unsafe if you make it harder for yourself IMO!

Never had a problem opening these one handed. Have several!

We have one of these for over 3 years now. We have never had a problem opening with one hand. It use be a user issue. No really it was simple to use I'm not sure how others had issues.

Sadly it's your technique, not the gate...though some are harder to get the hang of...and I guess if you've got small or weaker hands it might be difficult...

What it boils down to is some people are just more cack handed than others in certain circumstances. Sometimes there's just a knack of finding the best way

This is true. I have a few of these. Can open one handed no problem, the wife can't.
I like to put it down to my Kung Fu vice like grip. Haaaa Yaaaa!

Just what i needed to keep my puppy from getting upstairs and making my stairs hairy and eating my dirty socks from my laundry bin!

This is a great gate, at a brilliant price. Think we bought for a little more than this.

CAN DEFINITELY open 1 handed, pinch security tabs between thumb and one finger, and pull bar upwards with other fingers, hey presto!

Brought for £15 at ASDA on weekend, brought 2 more for parent at this price, Heat Added

i bought one of these the other day for my new puppy

We had a couple of these for a few weeks but I hated the bar at the bottom to trip over, especially at to of stairs (& was pregnant with fairly large bump so was a squeeze to get through) so would strongly recommend the lindam larger gates with no bar if you don't mind fixing them to wall, easy to open 1 handed too, but these are probably best bet if don't want to fix to wall (although depends how big child is because have watched a couple of 3 year old tantrums dislodge what seemed secure gates t friends houses!). I never had a problem opening these 1 handed but other half found them infuriating and Granny almost impossible without 2 empty hands...

I have this one, it's of very good quality. Good price.

Ideal for our dogs thanks OP!

I agree with a number of the posters on here - these are not easy to open single-handed, and they also have the bar at the bottom which is a serious trip hazard.

Thus we went for the Lindam Numi gates:
amazon.co.uk/Num…-15

Much better, but a lot more expensive. However, we got them when Boots were doing buy 1 get 1 half-price, which lessened the pain somewhat. They need to be screwed to the wall, but can be removed fairly easily (they slide off) if you want to put them away for a while.

Not voting on this deal - good price for the gate, but can't recommend these gates.

OOS now

Interested to know if the locking mechanism is the same as the one as shown on Amazon......or is it a blue handle that gets lifted up to unlock and pushed down again to lock?
The last baby event we bought 2 of the blue handle ones I mention where as my mum has the one as shown in the amazon pictures which closes and locks itseld when you let go of it.

oO

These are crap.

Get the frameless Lindam ones for Asda while the baby event is on for £15

I've got one of these - they are easily opened - dunno what others are on about.

Thing is, they will rarely fit a stair in older houses as the width is too much - they sell extensions for a small fortune however - good ol Lindam, they know how to make money!

Same price @ boots with a possible 6.06% tcb. Don`t know if boots do a click and collect service though!

Yes - back in stock - ordered. Thanks.

We've got a couple of these...one handed opening is no problem.

You can open it one-handed, pinch the level with thumb and one finger, then pull it up with another finger or two - simples.

We have two, agree with bar at the bottom being a safety hazard but if it wasn't there the gate wouldn't be as rigid. Lindam recommend you don't put it at the top of the stairs directly, but before the stairs e.g. if your landing is parallel to your stairs you can put it on the "turn" (not sure if this makes sense :)) and it's fine.

Like someone said, the harder it is to open the safer it is ...

The only thing to be aware of is if you have stairs where the gap is different between the top and the bottom (e.g. if you have rounded posts) - always measure the biggest gap and make sure it works on the bottom too. We bought these and the top gap required us to get an extension, but when we put it on it didn't fit in the bottom so I had to improvise

This is not the same as sold by ASDA. I have the one from ASDA and it is great. You can open it with one hand and it will shut itself after you. Not sure about this one though as it is a different model.

HOT.. just what I'm looking for.

The one pictured and reviewed on Amazon is the small blue button self closing gate.
The ones I got from Asda in the last baby event were a big blue handle that when it goes down the gate is locked but there is not auto closing/swing back mechanism on it.
Doesn't stop Asda selling this version this time though

nice one this is good value!

It seems that Asda had 2 versions then as mine is self closing and doesn't look like the one from Amazon. I got this 6 months ago, so they might not sell it anymore. It it quite good though

Oooh I'll be ordering one of these! To keep our dog in the back part of the house in the morning when the postman comes to stop him launching himself at the door (_;)

Bit difficult to put the baby down on the stairs whilst you try and open the gate. I am talking about going up the stairs - not being stood at the top coming down.

I have 4 of these all fine with one hand-bit stiff for first few days but fine after-my escapee two year old can now open all four with two hands no problem!! So if anyone can suggest better gates much appreciated!! And any car seats he may struggle to get out of too would make my life a tad easier!!! :-/

Also avaliable at boots for £13.79 + £2.95 P+P
