Evenflo Expansion Swing Wide Gate Review
Many baby gates today are mostly made of metal or a combination of metal and plastic. This baby gate is different from many others because it is uniquely made with a wood and plastic combination and instead of swinging open like other gate, you can expand and contract it as needed. So when it is not needed, you can simply contract it into a compact piece and set it aside without the need to dismount it.

- 32 inches tall and fits openings measuring 24 to 60 inches wide
- Easy hardware mount installation
- One hand operation, swings open for easy walk through

If you want a more organic feel to your home, including your baby gate, you might just like the Evenflo Expansion Swing Wide Gate. It is made with a combination of wood and plastic that is easy on both the sight and the touch, especially if you are not too fond of the cold and modernist look and feel of metal.
The earthy colors of the material in this baby gate are sure to fit into any cozy country or wooden era themed home. It presents as an almost mesh-like netted woodwork that is artful and almost chic, so you will definitely not have a tough time trying to fit it in your home.
It stands 32 inches high which can be used for your baby up until the age of about three years old. It can also fit openings that are between 24 to 60 inches wide to better be able to accommodate different types and sizes of entries such as doorways, hallways, walkways and room transitions.
You can use it anywhere in your home, in your bedroom, in the living room, in the kitchen, so you can make sure of your baby’s safety wherever in the house she may be.
It is installed with a hardware mount, which is agreed to be safer and more reliable than a pressure mount so you can even use it at the base of your stairways so that your baby does not attempt to climb up on her own. You will find that installing the Evenflo Expansion Swing Wide Gate is as easy as using it and will not take too much of your time and effort.
You can baby proof your home in style without breaking a sweat. All it takes is a few minutes of your time so you can do the installation while your baby is sound asleep or even when she is just taking a quick afternoon nap.
If you need to close it, open it, expand or contract it, you can do it all with one hand. It even swings open for you to walk through easily and conveniently. It truly takes into consideration the many difficulties that a new parent may face and definitely makes life a lot easier for very busy parents who barely have time for themselves.
Despite the one hand nature of this gate, it remains to be child resistant so that even the most curious or the most active kid will not be able to easily open the baby gate and pass through. You can be assured that only you and other adults will be able to open this gate when needed and that little tots with their tiny curious little hands are kept safe within at all times.
Because it has an exclusively unique mechanism which is the telescoping plastic safety rail, it eliminates any openings at the top of the gate, which a curious child may pick at and potentially cause the gate to open.
One seamless and break-free rail at the top eliminates the possibility of your child seeing this as a potential escape or opening. Evenflo Expansion Swing Wide Gate has accounted for almost all possibilities when it comes to child safety and effectively keeping your babies or pets rounded up in a secured space.
A few previous buyers of this baby gate were not convinced of the quality of the wood material that it is built with. You might feel that the wood material may not last very long, especially if you have active children who may constantly push and pull or rattle the gate.
Since it is made of wood, it has the tendency to break and splinters may become a hazard for little hands and arms. Other possible issues with this product are pinching at the folds, snagged little fingers, and easy damage. Try to use it with care and caution if you are planning on buying this baby gate.
The Evenflo Expansion Swing Wide Gate is definitely unlike many others because of its natural wooden construction. If you have an organic themed home with wooden accents, this baby gate will definitely fit in.
