this gate is so great because it doesn't have anywhere for the little ones to put their feet to attempt to climb over. It separates them from rooms that i don't want them to be in, and gives me piece of mind. I love that it isn't gaudy and effect my decor. It is easy to clean off when necessary, and stays put when put up properly. My children cant push it down even when they kick it (temper tantrums... gotta love children.) It keeps me up to code with my in home daycare certified through the DES office. i love this product!!
