Tippitoes Extendable Safety GateWe last tested the Tippitoes Self-Closing Safety Gate, mainly to keep our dog from dashing out through the catflap in the dead of night. The gate had to be removed when we had elderly friends and family visit who needed to be able to use the downstairs loo.

Now that Harriet is moving around we also need to be able to separate her from the animal food. Tippitoes Extendable Non-Trip Safety Gate seemed to fit the bill.

As the gate needs to be fixed to a "sound and rigid surface", my friend Geoff came to do the honours. The actual gate is relatively easy to install but he felt that the extendable section in the middle was "unnecessarily complicated". Fortunately we didn't need to extend it.

Suitable for use for children up to the age of 24 months, the single panel fits sizes 62-68 cms with five adjustable positions allowing an extension from 68 cm to 102 cms. The gate opens both ways for ease of use.

We're really pleased with how the gate looks (but I'm still lifting my feet to "step over" the the non-existent base bar!).
