Good points

  • Easy to use.
  • Self-closing.
  • Can be used in passages more than 1m wide without an extension.
  • Can set the gate to open in one direction or both directions.

But

  • A plastic-laminated label on the latch handle could easily be removed, torn into pieces and possibly inhaled or swallowed – but you can remove this label before installing the gate.
