Wide Portico Arch Gate – Linen

Testers were really delighted to discover North States’ Wide Portico Arch Gate. According to parents with gate experience, other gates they have tried tend to be cumbersome, bulky and generally unattractive, for them this gate was none of those things. They felt it would look great in any home and would blend in with just about any décor. Reviews reflected a feeling that this has all of the benefits of a sturdy, fully installed gate without having to put holes in your doorframes. The pressure mount system is easy to install and remove. The rubber feature of the tension knobs helps the gate to stay firmly in place and not slip during installation or with heavy use. There is also an extension for wider doorways or staircases. It was clear that reviewers felt the best feature was the door that swings in both directions. When it is fully open, it stays securely open. This is great when you are carrying laundry, groceries, babies, etc. When you want to close it, it automatically and securely closes itself with a light push. There is a simple twist lock, easy for an adult to open, but not so easy for small, inquisitive hands! This gates sturdy, attractive, and functional features make it a winner for anyone with young children…or pets!

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:
