The Evenflo Secure Step Gate helps parents keep their children safe from common household dangers, especially around the stairs. The four-point hardware mount provides a secure and easy top-of-stair mounting for your home. Depending on how you set the swing control, this Evenflo gate will swing in one or both directions to prevent moving over the stairs. To use the child-resistant, one-handed Lever Loc mechanism, simply squeeze the buttons and push down to open. This will allow you to pass through the white baby gate quickly and easily, but the two motions to unlock it will be too difficult for baby. To close and lock the gate, just give the door a gentle push and watch the slam-latch feature take over. A quick glance at the red-green lock indicator will tell you if the gate is securely locked. The neutral styling of the Evenflo Secure Step Gate blends well with any home decor.
