Lindam Flexiguard Safety Gate
Advantages: Light, easily fitted, folds up to be portable!
Disadvantages: Sometimes doesn't sit quite right if you don't tighten and have had a couple of instances of escape
Because the Lindam Easy Fit Classic stairgate is fairly solid and is designed, once in place, to be best left on, we decided we needed something a bit more lightweight and flexible to sit in the doorway of my daughter's bedroom. Something that could be easily removed during the day and only put on at night to stop little ones wandering when they should be in bed asleep!
This Flexigate then, also from Lindam, was an ideal choice! We wanted something reliable and, since we were so pleased with our other stairgate from this company, did not take long to make up our minds that this was just we had been looking for! Priced at just under £25, it is not the cheapest on the market but it is portable (this collapsible gate 'twists and folds' into its own carry bag making it ideal for travel) and easily attached.
It opens in a similar way to conventional Lindam stairgates with a handle that you squeeze to remove it from the opening but it does not swing out and instead just comes straight out! It is adjustable to fit openings between 71cm and 92cm and this is done easily by simply squeezing a small button underneath the gate and stretching each bottom corner until it connects to the wall or doorway. The top corner is tightened simply by twisting it in a clockwise fashion until it connects, in the same way that you would turn a screw!
I will admit I have had some trouble fitting this at night but that is more to do with the fact that I am a bloke as my wife has never had similar trouble! Once on, it is fairly secure and only comes loose if you have not tightened it enough. I also like the fact that it is lightweight and easily transportable if you go elsewhere to stay! This has made this come in very handy indeed!!
Overall, I am fairly pleased with this stairgate and would say it is good value for money! We certainly do not regret using it and then there has been many a night when Emilie will not sleep when we have been glad to have her kept safe and secure in her room with no chance to escape!!
Summary: A neat little stairgate that you can take on holiday!
