We have a few...

Tolo Two Way Auto Close Gate $100 - Easy to use and comes with extensions to fit slightly wider doorways. It's easy to open and has a lock so bub can't get through. Pressure Mounted. A little higher than standard.

Lindam Safe and Secure Play Pen $250 - Comes as a play pen with padded base and also coverts into a large safety gate. I think the gate covers a width of about 3.6m. This is perfect for open plan spaces. It's easy to remove too. Lifesaver for us as our kitchen is very open so it's great to be able to block it off. Hardware mounted.

Target Babyclub Safety Gate $70 - Metal gate with extension panels so covers a wider doorway. opens both ways, has a latch to lock the gate. Not auto close. Pressure mounted.

I'm pretty happy with all of our gates, the Lindam has been fantastic because when we did renos we used it as a play pen. I do love the Tolo though, it's great to have it open both ways and also be auto-closing.

We have one, an extra tall Valco. The extra tall feature is great, as there's no bending down to reach it. I'd definintely recommend that feature in any brand!

I've got a couple of el-cheapy Target ones and they're probably not something I'd recommend in a big hurry. They do the job but feel a bit flimsy so if you've got a boisterous child, they might pull it down.

We have the Infa ones and have been pretty happy with them. We have the caps screwed to the wall for the ones at the top and bottom of the stairs but everywhere else we can just move the gates to any door we need to close off. They are no good for large spaces but they are sturdy. DS has managed to ram the one on his bedroom door out once but he is a little rhino laugh.gif and was having a massive tantrum.

Whilst I can't remember the brand etc, we had one that was the same concept as a roller blind. It rolled up and was fixed on one side of the wall and then you pulled it out and it connected to some hooks on the other side of the wall.

It had a safety release that was child-proof. And for a 'blind' was extremely strong. We had it at the top of our stairs and had no accidents.

The fact that it rolled up again, was great for conserving space and not was not an eyesore, nor did it damage the walls (other than where it was fixed to the wall).

Well we've bought one baby gate so far and we got the Ikea white one which seems fine. Its only $49 so worth a try. We'll need to get another gate for the top of the stairs soon so if this Ikea one keeps going well we may just get another the same.
