This is a great gate. Perfect for keeping little ones from getting near the woodstove, which is why we bought it.
It arrived with 2 of the pivots bars bent but that may have had more to do with the shipper than the product. I did call and the company is sending replacements. One thing I found is that you can remove sections but you can only remove an even amount of sections. I happen to only need five for the length but now have to figure something out to make it fit. I realize why but it is inconvenient for the area I am using it in. Other than that it is easy to use and I believe it will do a great job of keep the little ones safe.
