What is the CHOICE Expert Rating

CHOICE Expert rating

This is the product's overall performance score, based on key tests conducted by our industry experts in the CHOICE labs.

Good points

• Tightening the clamps is easy using the supplied tool.
• Includes a 7 cm extension.
• Automatic closing and locking.

Bad points

• Serious safety failure: Sliding button on the handle has a gap under enough which could potentially snag or catch onto a child's clothing, presenting a strangulation hazard.
• Minor safety failure: Finger entrapment hazard in the gap between the bottom of the gate and the fixed bottom bar, closer to the latched side.

Baby Bunting says it disagrees with our findings and says the gate "has been independently tested by an accredited laboratory to confirm that it complies with the EN Standards EN 1930 and American Standard ASTM F 1004. This includes strangulation and finger entrapment hazards clauses in both Standards". It says it "has not received any incident reports or customer complaints in relation to these hazards".
