Q: IS THIS GATE GOOD FOR CATS?

submitted by TAY - 7 years ago
  • A: If a cat wants on the other side of the gate it can climb this fence.

    submitted bycindygilbert - 7 years ago
  • A: This was the exact reason I purchased this gate myself! I used it at the bottom of our stairs at night to keep him from "disrupting" our sleep. Closing our doors is not an option as I need to hear our daughter if she calls out. This gate worked pretty good at first, but he discovered he could just jump over it! Our cat is a Persian and they have a tendency to be a little lazier than most other breeds! I used some cardboard on top of the gate to create a sort of deflector, so when he looked up all he saw was cardboard..... that kept him out!

    submitted byTiki5872 - 7 years ago
  • A: Yes! Our cats have managed jumping on countertops, but somehow become baffled on how to get passed this. Haha

Happy gate owner - 4 months ago, Verified purchaser
The gate is very nice sturdy and just right size. The only negative thing about it is that the instructions are printed on the back of the box and if you don’t keep the box you no longer have the instructions so the instructions should be on a separate paper inside the box

Poor latching system

1 out of 5 stars
- 8 months ago
originally posted on evenflo.com
I have a 40 year old gate just like the latest one I purchased the old gate locking system was just a metal u shaped clamp which locked the position of the gate. This gate has a plastic lock which is impossible to operate and difficult to move. My old gate you just slid it into position adjust the gate width place the space location mechanism in the slot and push the lock bar down. Done. This gate system you fight to slid the plastic lock off the the top bar position the gate hope to keep the gate position where you want it and fight to get the plastic lock in place and hope it holds. If this is a improvement the designer needs to try to operate this gate. Then operate a old one like I have. I’m sending it back. This company needs to go back to the old lock mechanism.

Not as good as the old model

The new mechanism to keep the gate locked is not an upgrade from the old mechanism. The new mechanism slips over the end of the piece that tightens the gate and it locks onto the end of the piece. This lock is tough to unlock for a person with arthritis.

Doggy gate

Nathalie H. - 9 months ago

I’m using this baby gate for my 3 small dogs (10lbs each). While the sight of it is enough of a deterrent for my dudes, I can see how it might not be enough for more curious or relentless creatures - and it could topple over. The strength of the construction is lent what they used to be. And the latch takes some getting used to. I’d recommend this gate only to those with compliant kids/pups who need a visual reminder of their boundary.

Gate Model 202

2 out of 5 stars
- 1 year ago
originally posted on evenflo.com
The item Gate 202 is 23X26 dimensions ... the assembly is close to nothing. The instructions for wall caps mounting is so small its not worth trying to read, even my magnifying glass wasn't helpful; and I asked other to see if they could read it, none could. What is wrong with the marketing dept for this company, they have a product that you could mount a poster board 2-2 ft with all the info needed and it could be made large enough for the average person to read ... my vision is 20/20 so its not that! I'm sure the gate will work properly when I use it, so don't worry about the operation of it, my complaint is with a dumb marketing dept .... PS; I know the cost of card development for retail products, I have managed marketing consumer products depts

Dog gate works

5 out of 5 stars
Thumbs up graphic, would recommend
Elizabeth - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Using as a puppy gate and it works as expected, and looks decent for a baby gate. It's wood exterior means it handles getting knocked around and banged against. It's a tension gate so it works best in doorways where there's studs to brace against. But it'll also work against regular drywall or semi irregular surfaces.

Horrible! No other word to describe this new design. Love the old style. Used for pets, the old style was great and easy to use. I will look elsewhere for a gate now! Your product is horrible. I do NOT recommend that anyone purchase this gate! A total waste of money!

Cheap wood splits rendering the gate useless

1 out of 5 stars
Mamaloobus - 1 year ago
originally posted on evenflo.com
I used this gate for a couple of months and today while setting it up, the wood on the end around the metal split. It is completely useless now. I am a stay at home mom with no income. I don't make purchases lightly, so something I have out of necessity breaking upsets me. If you absolutely NEED a baby gate, don't get this one, spend the extra money for a metal one.
