Our playroom has double doors and it was hard to find a baby gate that was wide enough. This gate is great we were able to put it up and just leave it up for long periods of time. I have very short legs but it was short enough that I could easily step over it and big enough that it kept the kids in. The soft netting is great it made it harder for the kids to climb over the gate. We never had a problem with our child climbing over this gate, we had the climbing over issues with other gates but this one was great. I like that it isn't the hard plastic it is less damaging in our door way, has more give to it, and just feels less ridged then the hard plastic gates. Durability We used the gate constantly for a few years in our playroom and it held up great. It's a very durable and tough gate. Ease of Use Very easy to step over and we would rarely take it down. When we did need to get it put back up my husband would always take care of that part. I could never get it put up by myself. Safety We never had any safety issues with the gate. It made our lives so much easier.
