KidCo Pinnacle Gateway Baby Gate

Baby gates—not something I have used frequently living in a ranch style house, but with a dog and two little ones running around, I decided to try one out to keep the house calm for a while.
Firstly, the Pinnacle looks great as far as gates to—it’s a styled white, metal finish with a curve at the top—but it’s still a gate. I was a little concerned that it felt a bit flimsy at first, but once pressure-mounted it felt quite sturdy. However, as the user guide suggests, I would not use this with children over 2 or larger dogs—I think they could easily try and get over it.
I love the foot pedal on this gate. It’s an ingenious little peddle at the bottom corner of the gate that allows you to open the gate hands-free. So when carrying your little one and an armful of gear, you can easily open the gate—a big plus for a busy mom. It also has patented magnets at the top of the gate that help the gate swing shut behind you. Once closed it also incorporates a locking indicator, which shows green when the gate is open and ready for use and red when it is locked and secure.
