Evenflo Soft and Wide Gate

The Evenflo Soft and Wide Gate is both stylish and practical: a chic solution to all of your home’s baby proofing needs. This transparent gate does not obscure your view of your house or apartment, and yet at the same time it ensures that your baby cannot cross over into rooms where you do not want her or him to be.

Place this gate at any point in the house that you do not want a curious, crawling baby to cross. Gentle rather than obstructive, this is a great way to give yourself the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your home is a safe place for baby to be.

Product Specifications

The Evenflo Soft and Wide Gate is extra wide (extending to up to 60 cm), so it can be used to portion off a wide corridor if necessary, as well as being used in more traditional ways to safeguard your baby from getting into the kitchen. Unfortunately, though, this gate has not been approved for use at the top of the stairs.

It is adaptable in size, so you can narrow or extend it to suit the size of the opening into which you want to fit it. Moreover, unlike some other baby gates which leave physical marks on the walls after they have been removed, this gate is equipped with soft rubber bumpers to protect your walls and door frames.

After all, by its very nature, a baby gate is a product that will only be used on a temporary basis, until your child gets old enough to step over it!

Aesthetically, this is a baby gate that will fit in with the existing decor in any home, thanks to its neutral hue and timeless yet elegant design.

Keeping it looking good is also very easy as it is machine washable. So do not worry if your little one gets their grubby fingers on your Evenflo Soft and Wide Gate: it will look as good as new in no time.

As it is made of fabric, this gate can also be detached and rolled up with ease. it will retain its shape when it is unrolled, which means that you can store it ready for the next little one to arrive if you like.

Pros:

  • Machine washable
  • Adjustable
  • Rubber bumpers protect your home
  • Larger than the average baby gate
  • Easy to install
  • Fits in a variety of different locations
  • Blends in with almost any type of interior design
  • Light weight and easy to carry
  • Compact when rolled up

Cons:

  • Not suitable for using at the top of the stairs
  • Does not swing open and closed like a traditional gate – needs to be stepped over or detached then reattached
  • Kids can sometimes tear the mesh with vigorous pushing

Final Verdict

This is an innovative variation on the classic baby gate. The Evenflo Soft and Wide Gate is a gentle, neutral and unobtrusive way to keep your home safe for your baby or toddler. Though it may be frustrating for some homeowners to not be able to swing this gate open and shut (as is the case with traditional rigid plastic stair gates, for instance), this gate makes up for this with its superior adaptability and its large extension.
