144 Inches Long
This is a long baby enclosure with a gate for your baby or pet. If you are needing a large space to be blocked off either for keeping a baby in or out of an area, this should do the trick. Customers who needed a large gate really appreciated this extra big space. A customer shared,
"It's an awesome product and very long. I love how you can take parts off to make it the length you want. It was so hard trying to find a gate to fit the length of our kitchen opening, but this worked wonders and we use it everyday to keep our dogs in the kitchen and out of our family room."
Can Stand Alone As A FreeStanding Playground
This gate can stand alone and be used like a playpen. Many of the customers who bought it really liked this feature. Here is one of the comments about the gate standing alone,
"An amazing freestanding fence. Exactly what i was looking for for my baby! Stands by itself, I often sit on the floor while playing with my baby and lean on it - no problem! No need to destroy the walls and attach it. Look no further - this is the one!"
Bars Are Too Close Together For a Cat To Pass Through
If a cat will need to pass through an area that you intend to use this as a baby or dog gate, you might want to think again. Customers commented that the bars are too close together for a cat to pass through. A customer explains,
"The bars are very close together - our cat cannot fit through them. If you have cat that may need to pass thru the yard/gate to get to the litter box etc, you may need to rethink that."
Good Price For What You Get
For 144 inches of fencing with a gate, this is good price. It is durable and should withstand a lot of abuse. Here is one of the comments on the price,
"This is a great gate. I have had many and a lot more expensive than this one. I was leery to buy because the price was low and didn't think the quality would be good, but it is very solid. We walked through the gate frequently and still as good as when we first got it. You can bend in all kinds of shapes to fit the space you need to block off."
If You Use An Odd Number Of Panels You Will Need Mounting Kit
This gate system will not work with an odd number of panels without the need to buy a mounting kit. It is important to measure the space that you'll be using it in and then plan accordingly.
A customer explains,
"What they do not tell you, is that if you configure it to use as an odd number of panels then you must buy an additional mounting kit. The set up is strange because instead of each panel having a positive and negative end they're actually positive and negative panels. So if you use an odd number of panels you end up with two positive ends and the mounting kit they provide won't work. It is roughly $20 to get this new mounting kit."
The North States Superyard 3 In 1 Arched Decor Metal is a 144 inch long gate system. If you intend to use an odd number of panels, you will need a mounting kit since each side has a negative and positive end and must fit together. This is one of the few very long gates on the market. Many people used it to block off a fireplace section or to make a free standing play area. It is not cheap, but for the size and durable construction, most people felt that it was well worth the price. I hope that my review of the North States Superyard 3 in 1 Arched Decor Metal can help you decide if this is the right baby gate for you!
