The Door Gap Is Not A Defect
There seems to be a lot of confusion on the door gap. Many customers returned this door because of the gap. The directions state that the reason for the gap is so that the gate fits properly. Here is one of the comments on the door gap,
"For the reviewers who claim this gate is cheap or defective, you are wrong. Take a moment and read the instructions. Out of the box it appear to be 'warped' as others have referred it it - but it is actually designed that way on purpose...so that you can tighten it and create the proper amount of tension."
Can Be Pressure Mounted or Hardware Mounted
This is a pressure gate but it has the capability to be securely and permanently mounted using the mounting cups. Some people suggested to be extra safe, it's a good idea to use the mounting cups. If you are putting this baby gate at a dangerous spot like at the top of some stairs, it would be wise to use the mounting cups.
Here is a comment from a customer about the mounting cups,
"If you mount the cups to the jamb with their small (1" long number 6 flathead screws), the gate's four friction pads are held securely to the jamb and greatly increase the security of the gate. Using the cups, no reasonable amount of pushing can cause the gate to pop out of the jamb. You will have four small holes in your door jamb, however, should you remove the gate in the future. The instructions state that these cups MUST be installed if the gate is at the top of a stairway. You would not want the gate falling down the stairs with a kid behind it."
The reviews on ease of installation were very positive. If you are pressure mounting it, this gate should not take long at all to install. If you are installing it permanently by screwing it in the wall, it may take a few more minutes, but still not very long.Here is one of the comments on ease of installation,
"Installation was actually remarkably easy and it was very well described in the directions - just insert the four pins in the holes at the four corners, hold it in the doorway, and then unscrew the tension cap thingies until the rubber feet are firm against the door. A couple reviews said it would be better with two people but I did it by myself in 2-3 minutes."
This price is a real winner. If you are wanting an inexpensive gate that is safe and easy to install without breaking your bank account, the Regalo Easy Step Walk Thru Gate is a good choice. Here is comment from a customer pertaining to the price,
"For the quality of the gate and for the value/price point, it is a serious winner and it is absolutely worth getting."
The Regalo Easy Step Walk Thru Gate is a pressure mounted gate that can also be hardware mounted if you use the mounting cups. If used at the top of stairs or other area that pose danger if the gate fell, it is wise to use the mounting cups. This gate is very easy to install and should only take a few minutes of your time. There is a door gap in the gate that some people think is a defect, but it is not and was designed that way for proper fit. I hope that my review of the Regalo Easy Step Walk Thru Gate helps you decide if you should buy this baby gate!
