Summer Infant Wood & Metal Decorative Five Foot Mounted Pressure Gate Review

Summer Infant Wood & Metal Decorative Five Foot Mounted Pressure Gate Review

If you’re on the lookout for a baby gate, you should give some serious consideration to the Summer Infant baby gate. The main reason the Summer Infant baby gate trumps others in its league by a large margin is that it is a powerful combination of durability, ease of use and most of all, beauty. And we’re not stressing the “beauty” part enough.

With an oak wooden gate held together by black or bronze-colored finished metal, the looks of the gate are designer level. It is this dual material and color of the gate that lets it fight inconspicuously among any type of home interior design.

Summer Infant Wood & Metal Decorative Five Foot Mounted Pressure Gate is not all about looks either. It provides a great safety standard, well-designed looks and a sturdy gate makes sure to keep your baby where he’s supposed to be. The height is 32” and the arched wooden gate will make sure that your baby will never be able to climb over it.

The baby gate will satisfactorily fit in almost all doorways, entrances of staircases or other passages. Adults can easily open and lock the baby gate using a single hand, and the baby gate will open in both directions.

Features

  • Side supports are made of metal
  • The main gate is made of wood
  • 32” tall gate
  • Has a width of 36-60”
  • Door opens in either direction
  • Pressure-mounted baby gate
  • Very lightweight weighing only 21 pounds
  • 12-month warranty on purchase

Pros

  • Very beautiful to look at
  • Can fit a wide range of spaces between 36-60 inches
  • Is pressure mounted and hence is easy to affix and remove
  • Easy one-handed open and close operation
  • Very durable
  • High-quality material is used. Wood used is oak.
  • Doesn’t fall off easily like other pressure-mounted gates
  • Locking system ensures baby can never open it

Cons

  • Leaves pressure marks on the wall
  • Room for passing through is a little too small

Summary

As the gate is pressure mounted, you can fix the gate quite easily within minutes without any use of tools or external help. While cleaning your home or moving furniture etc., you can remove the gate from where it is just as easily. No assembly, no screws or nails, no fretting.

With a pressure-mounted gate comes the inevitable problem of finding pressure marks on your walls. This problem can be eliminated by purchasing wall guards or wall savers/wall pads and fixing them in between your baby gate and your walls.

One big drawback of buying the Summer Infant baby gate is the room it gives to pass through. Despite the gate being wider than its predecessors by the same company, people of larger sizes will find it difficult to pass through the gate. Carrying something through the gate will also become a problem. However, how often will you need to carry something through the gate?

Comparison

There is a plethora of baby gates behind this Summer Infant baby gate in quality and a couple ahead. The quality of the baby gate, its durability and its ability to withstand huge forces, despite being a baby gate, already puts it ahead of almost all hardware mounted baby gates.

You can purchase the inverse version of this gate by the same company if your décor requires it. In the inverse version, the passing gate is made of metal and the other of wood. The gate is of the same standard and quality. Where gates by other companies are concerned, the Summer Infant Deco Wood trumps gates from companies such as Cardinal, EZ-Fit, and Regalo.

A gate of comparable quality is the North States Supergate. While the North States Supergate fails to compare in the looks department, it allows a lot of space to pass through the gate. So, you might want to narrow down your options to these two and choose further based on your preferences.

Verdict

The Summer Infant Wood & Metal Decorative Five Foot Mounted Pressure Gate is a great purchase in almost all cases. However, if you require a baby gate that gives more space to pass through, or if you’re short on budget, choosing other gates will become an inevitable necessity for you.

North States Supergate Deluxe Décor Metal Gate Review

North States Supergate Deluxe Décor Metal Gate Review

If you’re welcoming a baby to your home, the plan of baby proofing your home must already be forming in the back of your head. With the plan of baby proofing, comes the dilemma of which baby gate to buy.

With years of experience in baby safety, this baby gate doesn’t fall short of the reputation of its company, North States. Handling every baby gate problem that other baby gates show time and again, all the while saving itself from being tagged as a hardware-mounted baby gate, the North States Supergate is perhaps the best and the most well-rounded baby gate out there.

Let’s start from its design. With two available colors, black and bronze, this device is sure to fit in any needed area of your house, while completely looking like a part of it, or even further beautifying your home. The finish is matte, so it feels good to the touch also.

One of the best reasons to purchase the North States Supergate is that it fits anywhere, and in most commonly seen passages and doorways of your home. This means that you can buy the Supergate without giving a second thought as to if it would fit or not. Number wise, the sizes it fits lie between 38.3” inches to 72”, which also coincides with the sizes of most doorways or passageways.

Out of the dozens of baby gates available across baby stores, the North States Supergate Deluxe, has already satisfied millions of parents worldwide.

Features

  • Heavy duty metal construction
  • Gate width of 25.5 inches
  • Arched gate
  • Adjusts to fit any opening between the sizes 38.3 to 72 inches in width and 30 inches in height
  • Matte bronze finish
  • Lead-free material
  • Pressure mounted baby gate
  • Can be fit in an angled manner
  • Child proof safety latch

Pros

  • Easy to install as the gate is pressure mounted
  • Good space to pass through
  • Adjustable to fit almost anywhere
  • Handles forces easily without falling out of position
  • Looks great on any internal décor
  • Heavy duty and is very durable
  • Safety is assured
  • Easily removable and easily storable

Cons

  • Might leave pressure marks on the wall
  • Simple design

Summary

The North States Supergate is a pressure-mounted baby gate, so you can buy it, and fix it where you want it, without any need of tools or help. It is as easy to remove as easy it is to affix, so removing is not a headache either. Where it can be argued that hardware-mounted gates are sturdier, and pressure mounted gates tend to fall off, this particular baby gate trumps those notions and perfectly holds almost any amount of pressure.

Where its pressure mount provides an advantage, it is can also be somewhat of a disadvantage. All pressure gates tend to leave undesirable pressure marks on the walls. This disadvantage can be eliminated by purchasing wall savers for pressure gates and fitting them between the gate and the walls.

The gate gives enough room to pass through, so the size of adults in your home is irrelevant to your choice of purchasing this gate. The gate has a child-proof safety latch, so your baby will never be able to open the baby gate on his own.

Comparison

There are perhaps no baby gates that outdo the North States baby gate in quality and performance, though some may match it. Gates such as the Summer Infant Decorative Wood might be the same in material quality and durability, but the room it gives for passing through is compromised. The Cardinal Baby Gate might be the same in quality and give more passing room than this one, but it is hardware mounted, making it difficult to install.

The only reason to choose other baby gates over this one is if you have special custom needs or if you are crunched on the budget. Gates by Regalo are good suggestions for less-expensive gates, though they make a handful of compromises in quality.

Verdict

Unless your budget is below what the North States Baby gate asks in price, which is quite reasonable, this is the best baby gate out there to buy.

There is red light/green light indicator showing if the gate is properly locked or not. It has a one-hand release handle that is easy for an adult to use but not the children.

In the similar price band as the Kidco Safeway Gate, Top of Stairs Gate there is Cardinal Gates’ Auto-Lock White Gate which is great for high-traffic areas like doorways, the bottom of the stairs, etc., although it is ideal for top of the stairs.

The sturdy construction and above-standard quality steeped in years of tradition in home safety, it is safe to say that the Kidco Safeway Gate, Top of Stairs Gate is the correct choice when looking for a metal safety gate for your home.
