Good points

  • Easy to use.
  • Can be used in passages more than 1m wide without an extension.
  • Can set the gate to open in one direction or both directions.
  • Claims it complies with US (ASTM) standard for safety gates.

But

  • Failed some major safety tests (see ‘Key data’ for details).

How we test

Other standards: Claims to comply with the European (EN) or the US (ASTM) standards for safety gates. The European and US standards have different requirements from what we used in our tests.

Ease of use: Assesses installation and assembly, operating the latch, and opening and closing the gate.

Safety failures

A projection on the horizontal wooden bar could snag clothing (so there’s a risk of strangulation). Gaps between vertical bars could trap a leg or arm. Holes for the extensions could trap a finger.
