We have this gate at the top of our stairs and getting ready to buy our second for the bottom. It was very easy to install (even with the somewhat vague / confusing instructions) and did not cause any damage to our wood rails. The only downside was the wall-side mount where it did not match up to a stud so we had to install a "helper" length of wood, but still only added 4 holes to our drywall that will easily be patched when we are ready to uninstall. As another review stated, the design is kind of limiting with larger baseboards / handrails but we are planning on simple wood block spacers to help with the lower install. This is by far the best gate for stair protection (safety / installation and even aesthetics) that we could find.

The gate is well made--I completely disagree with the posters who said it is a piece of junk or poorly made. I wish, however, that the description highlighted the fact that it will not work if you have baseboards. I attached one side to the wall and one side to a banister. However, the wall side has a baseboard (as I imagine most homes do). With the baseboard, the gate cannot sit properly on the floor nor align with the hinge side. I think this would be easy enough for the company to adjust to with adapter, but for now, it is useless to me. It's a beautiful, well made gate, but we can't get it to work.

Good Enough. Didn't want to hassle with a Return.

Comments about Summer Infant Banister & Stair Gate with Dual Installation Kit:
The system for connecting the gate to the square ends of the banister was useless, and would not stay put. We ended up using the wall system for both sides and screwing into the post. The one thing I did not want to do when installing a baby gate! The reason I chose this product was because it came with all the hardware for multiple options. I just wish the banister connection would have worked. Due to the configuration of our stairs and baseboards we had to cut and modify the brackets and use additional shims to get it to work. I would not recommend this product for anyone who wants an easy install. Or anyone who has a square banister post.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Doesn't hold up
After using for 9 months and struggling to open it almost every time, the straps for the banister loosened and the gate fell down the stairs and broke. I wouldn't recommend this gate.
from Montclair NJ
It took my forever to find a gate that would fit my round banister--this is perfect and looks nice as well. Wood matches perfectly.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Love this Gate
We love this gate, it works perfect for our banister to banister use. Its a good height so our 18 month old doesnt try to stand on it to look over like some of the other gates we have had.

Waste of money
It looked great and worked good for a couple of months. Recently the button to open it started to jam. Now we have to fight with it to even open it. If i wpuld have kmown ot was gonna last less than a year i would have never spent the money on this.
Definitely everything we expected.
from Windber, PA
Use it as a safety device to prevent our granddaughter from tumbling down the steps.
Good quality product.
from Kansas City
The product seems to be good quality. I like that it's wood instead of metal. I really like that there's no drilling holes required to use this product.
I own 2 and recommend
from Loudoun VA
I own 2 of these, both at the bottom of our stairs (main floor and basement). I have both gates fastened to our banister and provide more than adequate safety for our child. I myself have tried to shake it and have found no safety integrity issues. Worth the $$
