View Full Version : Recommendation for pressure mounted gate for six foot wide opening?

07-17-2003, 09:17 AM
Hi there! I just moved and we installed our Evenflo Secure Solutions at the top of the stairs and now need one to block off a room downstairs. I usually am a good researcher, but time is getting the best of me with all of the unpacking! Does anyone have a good rec for this kind of gate? I am picturing the kind that expands and is fabric or mesh type I think. Please let me know. TIA!

I'm pretty sure that you aren't going to be able to find a pressure-mount that wide. I was looking for one for a space just over 5 feet and couldn't find one. You'll probably have to go with the Kid Co. Configure Gate or Elongate. http://www.kidco.com/gate_dis.cfm?Gate_ID=g80 http://www.kidco.com/gate_dis.cfm?Gate_ID=g60 There's also the Wide Spaces Gate by Evenflo, but I'm not familiar with it. http://www.evenflo.com/pr/ga/prga_widespaces.phtml

DH just tried putting up the Evenflo one with the optional extension. Three hours later, nine million extra holes later, a zillion curse words later, the darn thing broke during mounting. So we're taking it back. Perhaps we'll try the kidco one for our 72 inch opening.
