As of this writing there were 5,540 customer comments and 641 answered questions for the Summer Infant Multi-Use Deco Extra Tall Walk-Thru Gate.  I've read through the customer feedback, and then condensed the results into this review.  I hope that this helps you when shopping for a baby gate.

Good Height

This baby gate standing at 36 inches is tall enough to not only keep babies in but also to keep in big dogs.  Here is a customer comment about the gate height,

"The height of the gate is much taller than most 'baby' gates which is perfect as one of our dogs is tall and still growing."

Pressure Mounted With Option To Hardware Mount

This is a pressure mounted gate that can also be hardware mounted if you choose to use the included hardware mounts.  It is highly recommended to use the hardware mounts if you will be installing this baby gate at the top of stairs.  Just one accident could severely injure a baby if he or she pushed through a gate.  It's better to be safe than sorry.

Attractive Design

The first thing I noticed about this gate was that I liked how it looked.  Then when going through reviews left by customers, I found that other people also liked how attractive it is. If you are going to have a gate set up in your house, you won't want it to be an eyesore if you have better gate options.  Of course, everyone has different tastes.

Here is one of the many comments about how this gate looks,

"It is a very attractive gate compared to many other models on the market. I like that it stays open and doesn’t swing back shut."

Opens by Slide and Lift Design

Some parents commented about how they liked that this gate opens by slide and lift design as opposed to press and lift.  Eventually, as children grow in physical stature and mental ability, they will figure out how to open the gate.  By that time, hopefully you may not need to use a gate.  Here is one of the comments on the slide and lift design,

"Opening the gate takes two steps, slide and lift. My 2 year old son figured out how to open our Expansion Swing Wide Gate, which is press and lift, but I think it will be a while before he masters this one."

Very Easy Installation

The installation for this gate is very easy.  Here is one of the many positive comments on ease of installation,

"They are pretty easy to assemble and install (it took me about 15 minutes to understand how to assemble it and 30 minutes to install 2 gates)."

Should Be Painted If Used Outside

Some people like to use baby gates on their outside decks.  Gates outside work well for both babies and pets for keeping them either on or off the deck.  If you do use it for that purpose, it would be a good idea to paint the gate with paint made for the weather. Otherwise if you use as it and it gets wet, it could rust.

Here is one of the comments on weatherizing this gate,

"I needed it for outside, but after the first rain I saw signs of rust so I realized that I had to tape and repaint it with the "trigger spray" Rustoleum Paint and Primer-in-one (Buy 2 cans). I chose Hammered Black. The gate works to keep my toddler on the porch so I can leave the gate open, plus it looks nice. It always stays outside."

Good Price

The price point compared to quality is very good for this gate.  Here is one of the price comments left by a customer,

"We have bought 2 previously (different brands) that were much flimser and cheaper quality, but were about the same price. This gate is my favorite by far."

My Conclusion 

The Summer Infant Multi-Use Deco Extra Tall Walk-Thru Gate is a durable gate that features a slide and lift design for opening it.  This gate can be either pressure mounted or hardware mounted with the included hardware.  Installation is fast and easy.  This gate stands at 36 inches tall with the adjustability to be 28 inches to 48 inches wide.  If you choose to use it outside, it should be painted with a weather resistant paint. I hope that my review of the Summer Infant Multi-Use Deco Extra Tall Walk-Thru Gate can help you decide if you should purchase this baby gate!
