Found 2nd May 2012
Just been to local Morrisons, they had Lindam sure shut axis safety gate at £10, shelf full of them.
They were in their last Baby event at £15 so maybe they are just clearing out what was left.

Fits about 1% of gaps out of the box.

Measure first folks, as then extensions are expensive.

Nice one, have some heat.

this particular model is horrible - the pinch and pull method of opening it is incredibly fiddly compared to other designs - i hate mine.

Damn sizes... newer built houses are obliged to have wider door frames... thus these are too small and as mentioned earlier, the extension kit ain't exactly cheap!

We have 2 of these up and down the stairs, they've been a real life saver - properly speaking. Indeed they are fiddly to open but this means that my smart little toddler still didn't manage to open despite trying on many occasions. I agree that you better take measurements first. Also have to add that we got a few bruises from it going up and down the stairs as the lock sticks out quite a lot. However this is a great deal!

Brilliant gate, I am a childminder and love mine, really easy to open one handed once you get the hang or it (which my kids parenmts havent done yet! LOL). I do agree that the top where it locks in sticks out a bit & it just at thigh height, had a few bruises when been in a hurry, it only just fits on my doorways (victorian house, narrow doorways) but it fits on so sturdily, would totally recommend

Damn! bought one of these from Asda only yesterday for £20. I can feel a refund coming on...

These are the same as the Mothercare ones so you may be able to source extensions for those ones cheaper? A little tricky to open but you get used to it.

Do they no longer offer the first extension free? I'm sure I only paid about £2.50 for postage about 18 months ago. It wasn't this model, but was a Lindam gate.

nationwide ?

I would rather screw the gate into the wall than have a pressure fit one, especially at the top of the stairs.

Is your kid massively fat or prone to running headlong at stuff at full tilt or something??

You DO NOT need to screw a baby-gate into the wall - seriously - it's a sensible safety item for a toddler whic weighs a few kilos a most - not a main road crash barrier!!

Also - toddlers shouldn't be left upstairs unsupervised anyway, surely??

If it's still an issue - you could buy a dog crate for about £40 - super, super safe then. Perhaps line it with lead and concrete just to be sure

This is priceless, took the words right out my mouth. We have been in the nursery goods trade for lots of years and your spot on. pressure fit is fine and ive also been a dad for years, you dont leave a youngster upstairs alone. spoonyboy what have you been doing up until now, passing its dinner through the bars?

Anyone else managed to pic one of these up? I have tried three stores near me and they all say they wont have them until they have the next baby event!

It's not priceless, it's a incorrect assumption. My son is 51st percentile for his age/weight at 9 months old, he is not prone to running anywhere as he cannot walk yet.

Yes pressure fit is fine if your scared of using a drill and screwdriver. However, the bottom bar is a trip hazard and therefore not recommended for use at the top of stairs.

From Safetots.co.uk "Due to the potential trip hazard of the bottom bar which is required for the pressure fit, pressure fitting gates must not be fitted at the top of stairs."

From Safekids.co.uk "Never Use a Pressure Fitting Gate at the Top of Stairs!
Particular attention should be given when selecting a baby gate for use at the top of a stairway. A pressure mounted gate uses pressure to 'clamp' itself in between an opening and there is the danger your child can push the gate over. In addition, there is a bottom rail which presents a major tripping hazard. Always use a screw fitting gate on stairs."

I know one end of a screwdriver from the other, so have no problems fixing a stair gate permanently to the wall.....with no trip hazard.

I hope you teach your children to engage their brains before speaking instead of blurting out nonsense like their parents.

Once again wasted trips to 3 stores costing me £10 fuel, once again another fail of a supermarket deal.

Yep 4 years now and i have not ever picked up a supermarket deal on HUKD. Supermarket deals should be BANNED from here. Its like me posting a deal at my local corner shop.

All 3 morrisons stores we attended said that the £10 offer does not exist and never has. The price is £18.99.

ICE COLD.

You could always call your supermarket before you go to double check if they have item in stock. Save £££ on petrol.

2 things there

1 - the trip hazard is an issue whether you pressure fit, screw fit or weld/concrete it in - they're actually saying that putting THIS gate at the top of stairs is risky full-stop (tho no more so than shoes, washing and 100 other things people put on their stairs anyway!!)

2 - the 'toddler might push it over' thing is also nonsense if you pressure-fit it properly. I used to have this same gate at the bottom of our stairs (to stop the dogs going upstairs) and they never moved it despite trying hard (and the larger dog is 3-4 times the weight of any toddler). Furthermore, when people called I'd sometimes sit on it - and I'm many times heavier again - and it never moved/tipped/dropped.

So again, when your toddler is angry does he go green? Do you feed him Spinach? Has he come in carrying the postman??

*catches dummy deftly and returns it to J4JJ4's pram*

First up - you drive to multiple stores on the offchance of saving a few £s - have you noticed the price of petrol recently - did you cover maths at school????!!

Secondly - this site isn't just for you, if there are 2 on-offer (the poster's and one for someone else) it's worth posting it. Stop being such a child (we need a babygate in-front of this poster's PC!!)

You clearly don't understand the difference between a pressure fit and fixed stair gate. I will try to explain, read slowly and refer back to the pictures;

When a pressure fit gate is open, a bar remains on the floor to stop the left and right sides of the gate collapsing. This bar is considered a trip hazard and is not needed on a fixed gate where the left and right sides are fixed to the wall.

This is why you must not use pressure fit at the top of the stairs. I understand your dogs did not trip over your ground level pressure fit gate, and even if they did it wouldn't matter....they are only dogs after all. If you carry your child down the stairs, having a trip hazard at the top could be fatal for both of you.

To be honest I'm not bothered whether you sit on your pressure fit gate all day long. However, I don't think it's very wise to give advice regarding child safety when you find it difficult to grasp simple concepts and make comparisons to your dog control.
