Are you familiar with the Evenflo gates? Do any of you use the Secure Solution Swing gate?

We received this one for Chrismtas and it's finally time to install it for our 9 month old! So, I don't know how it works just yet, but it was reviewed in the 3/02 edition of Parents magazine. The final verdict was that it was tough to install, but safe and solid and recommended. Hope this helps!

My husband just bought this for our 9 month old. And I agree with the reviewer - installation was difficult, but once up the gate seems solid as a rock. Opening and closing is pretty easy. It took a few tries for me to get used to removing and replacing the gate, but now I have no problems. We keep it off most of the times, but I guess that will change as he gets more and more mobile.

Yes, I have and LOVE this gate! It does take a drill and some time to install (10 min?). But once it is up, it is just great! Easy to put on & off the mounting brackets and when I finally take them completely away, I'll just patch the screw holes. My son is now 2 1/3 yrs, and I've had the gates for about 1 1/2 yrs. Not so great to install over really wide base boards as the gate needs to be no more than 4" from the ground.

I highly recommend this gate!!

Ditto everyone else. A right b*****d to install, but wonderfully easy to use once in place. My friend has one too and also loves it.
