I could see how some people would not like it, as it's a little technical to install. (No problem at all if you are handy & good with instructions.) Works easy for me, but my wife seems to have a little harder time, not bad tho. Doesn't open quite a full 90 degrees but I think one can safely grind the nuts that prevent it from doing so. Not sure that the foot petal mechanism is gnna hold up, I'm a little concerned. Foot petal does work kinda hard for my wife, hand petal the same. Hopefully she gets the hang of it, it could be great if it holds up. Time will tell I guess.

First off let me say that I am a mechanical designer by occupation so I know a terrible design when I see one. But, this one takes the cake. First thing I noticed when I was taking it out of the box was that not only is it a different color than what's on the box but it isn't even physically the same gate. The hinges, latches and opening mechanisms are entirely different. The second thing that I noticed was that the instruction manual that was included was for a child's ride-on four wheeler (ATV) and there were no instructions for assembling, installing or operating the gate. Regardless I installed the gate and in the process broke and stripped 3 of the screws which I had to replace with others that I had on hand. Once I got it installed and adjusted I found that the gate was almost impossible to operate due to the actual location of the opening mechanisms. Neither my hand nor foot fit in the actual openings of the gate. In frustration I swung the gate open and out of the way, vowing to take it down in the morning to return it and found that the gate doesn't even open all the way. Due to the design of the hinges the gate only swings open about 80 degrees. This gate is also unable to be installed anywhere where there is a baseboard. The foot pedal sticks out into the doorway creating a trip hazard. Do not waste your time or money!

      Comments about Summer Infant Stylish&Secure® Step 'n Release™ Gate:

      We bought this gate for our porch. When installing it the problem i noticed was with the screws. It was hard to get them in 2 of them stripped and the others would not go all the way in because the holes are too small to get a drill bit in them easily. But since this gate was going to be partially outside on our sunroom/ screen porch we were going to replace the screws with galvanized anyway so that wasn't a big deal. The step portion worked great for about a month. The hand release never worked. After about a month it became more difficult to get this thing open. And this was while our porch was being used as a sunroom, there was no rust that could have caused it. IT just became harder and harder to get it open, to the point that you had to push down on the step to get the top spring to unlatch and lean down at the same time to unlatch the bottom spring with your fingers. Don't buy it! Seriously! For everyone but me they needed a PHD to operate it and as it started getting harder to open you had to be super woman. Definitely not the hands free design I was hoping for. For the price I could have bought 2 other gates that work! The idea is great, the execution of that idea not so much.

        Comments about Summer Infant Stylish&Secure® Step 'n Release™ Gate:

        I bought the gate to replace another foot pedal gate that separates the wash room where my dogs primarily stay. The four stars are only for the performance of the gate after it's installed and the durablity and look of the metal. The instructions don't tell you that the screws are poorly made for wood installation. They broke and stripped easily. I've emailed summer to inform them of this. They need to indicate you should pre-drill the holes for wood construction. They indicate that for another type of installation but not for a plain doorway. And also that it you will need a power drill for that. They show regular screw drivers... ha!! So because of the cheap screws that broke and stripped it made it EXTREMELY hard to install. Just have patience, but the gate itself and function is good.

            First, gate in the box is not the same as pictured on the box. Second, don't even try to secure it to drywall, screws provided failed. Third, difficult to operate...barely enough room to get your foot on the foot pedal. Bottom line, DONT BUY THIS GATE!

              The product description fits well, using as stated. The only flaw is that it is very difficult to use the step-in unless you were wearing shoes. Gotta put a lot of weight on it. My wife and I both weigh about 140 each and we have to go "Conan" on it to get the thing to open sometimes. There's usually a technique to get used to doing in order for it go down all the way and open - depending on position of the adjustment screws and how we step on the lever.

              Comments about Summer Infant Stylish&Secure® Step 'n Release™ Gate:

              My husband and I are very handy people, so I should have know just by the installation that this gate would not be good for us. You can not use it if you have baseboards, although we were able to cut wood the thickness of the baseboard to go along the wall on top of them so that we could attach it since it has a solid wall piece. The hand latch is near impossible to use unless you have a very tiny hand. The foot pedal is nowhere near as big of an opening as they show, and you cannot adjust this because then the locking pins do not line up. You also have to be VERY strong to push down and roll it(DON'T do it barefoot). It is also very loud when latching and unlatching, so if you have a light sleeper...forget it!
              It is VERY sturdy so it is great if its in an area that you don't often go through.

              IMPOSSIBLE TO OPEN

              This gate is nearly impossible to open using the foot petal and the hand release. Don't waste your money, buy a different baby gate!

              This product should not be so hard to install and should work once installed. We will be taking it back to the store asap. For the money should be a better quality.

              Terrible Quality

              By Bryan

              from Ipswich, MA

              About Me Stay At Home Parent

              Comments about Summer Infant Stylish&Secure® Step 'n Release™ Gate:

              I have assembled hundreds of "some assembly required" products in my lifetime. This ranks as one of the worst.

              1. Wall brackets are plastic. The gate advertises that it is made of metal. The gate itself is, but the mounting brackets are plastic which weakens the entire gate.

              2. Latching mechanism doesn't work. This is largely due to issue #1. Because the mounting brackets are plastic, they bend during operation of the gate. This bending causes the latching mechanism to come out of alignment and fail.

              3. Screws are brittle garbage. This is the worst part of my experience. After finding that my gate didn't work, I was unable to remove it because the screws sheared apart when I tried to unscrew them. I ended up having to pry the screws out with a hammer and a chisel. Some of the screws had shattered into multiple fragments. I have never had this happen to me in my entire life.

              Bottom Line: Not only do I not recommend this gate, but I doubt I will ever buy another product from Summer Infant again. I have had mixed experiences with them in the past with other products and this is the final nail in the coffin for me.

              I spent a 2 hours trying to put it together only to find out it is a bad gate that does not work at all. It is very difficult to operate. I never find out! The hand release does not work. The hardware is all plastic and very cheap. One of the nails broke at the installation. I will be returning this gate to the store today.
