And no, that's not me and my kid. :-)
The reason I'm even telling you about this is because I think it's actually a pretty stylish and affordable solution for virtually any space. I actually like really love them - a lot. I got two. One for the bottom of the stairs and one for the top. BUT you can get extra mounting brackets, pop it out, and move it - super simple and great for busy parents needing containment of kiddos!
Ok...totally copying and pasting from the website here:
a small roll
Use as a retractable
door gate for pets
Great for wide openings as
a baby gate or pet gate
We have an angled wall at the bottom of our stairs.
It was the PERFECT solution. Everything else I found was ugly,
permanent, and just as expensive. Seriously! No great options for angles. :-(
We didn't use a banister kit, but we're pretty handy...we'll fix it when we remove it.
See where it "attaches" to the wall brackets?
Here's where you can "pop" it out really quick (but still baby proof people!)
Here's some price info. I think it's WELL worth it.
And I actually plan on getting a bit of that back via Craigslist!
My favorite (but mine wasn't the longer one)
is buying extra wall brackets, and then you can unhook and "swing" the gate
to the opposite wall in a hallway or whatnot. Does that make sense?
It is advertised as an
"Indoor/Outdoor Retractable Safety Gate For Kids & Pets"
What do you think? That was a super quick "review" of the gate,
but do you think you would go for something like this?
Do you think it looks better than most other gates?
I'll save another day for my "kid-catcher",
but SO worth it for our house on a hill. Google it. It's GREAT!
Also, just a quick reminder that you
can now follow RustiChic on Twitter and Pinterest -
I just added accounts! Yay!
Hope you're having a fantastic Wednesday!
