With clever visual indicators which show when the gate is safely closed, this safety gate can be opened in either direction. There’s also a double-locking mechanism for extra security, so it feels very reliable. It’s easy to open and extensions are available to make it fit into wider spaces.

This safety gate also features a useful auto-close mechanism, so you don’t need to fiddle about trying to shut it behind you. Our testers found the swing-shut gate handy, but in practice thought it noisy to operate.

Vicky Daly, 34, from Cheshire, is mum to Finn, 16 months. She says: ‘The gate swings back and forth quite noisily before the lock engages – not ideal when you’re carrying a sleeping baby upstairs to put him to bed.’ 

Sarah Lovett, 33, from West Sussex, is mum to Philip, one. She says:  ‘I found this fiddly to fit and unstable on its maximum-width setting. Easy to open and close, but the visual indicator isn’t really necessary.

Laura Crumbley, 25, from Wigan, is mum to Finton, 18 months. She says: ‘Love this gate! It was installed in seconds on my old, uneven stairs. Sturdy, easily locked in place, and the visual indicators show it’s safely closed.’
