North States Pet Gates: Reviews

North States Supergate Deluxe Dècor Gate

View On Amazon

Features

A 30 inch high pet or baby gate

Fits openings 38.3 to 72 inches wide

The arched piece in the middle with the door that you pass through is an extra wide 25.5 inches

The door has a stay-open feature which keeps the door fully opened when needed

Comes in 2 colors – brown, and a linen color (white)

Has pivot points on the gate panels that allow for mounting on angled walls. So, the gate can be mounted straight across or angled using the pivot points on the gate panels

Is made of a heavy duty metal and feel very solid

Entire barrier swings open on both sides with child-proof safety latch on both ends

You can get extra 15 inch extensions for this gate, and up to 6 of them will fit on the standard gate safely

The whole gate can easily be removed from the hardware brackets on either side or simply swung out of the way when not in use

 

Drawbacks

Being very nit-picky, the mounting hardware on the gate could fix into the gate slightly more tightly. But, this is being very critical – it doesn’t seem to be an issue practically when using the gate

No option to pressure mount the gate because of it’s weight

 

Overall

Overall, this gate is extremely versatile, strong, with a nice big wide door to walk through. Definitely worth the money you pay for it as it’s one of the better pet and baby gates on the market

Richell Pet Gates: Reviews

Richell Wood Freestanding Pet Gate

View On Amazon

Side panels fold in so you can store and transport this pet gate

 

Drawbacks

For smaller pets only

The gate is designed as more of a barrier to deter passing, rather than a gate to completely stop passing through by pets

 

Overall

Overall, if you want a nice wooden freestanding pet gate for small pets, this one is value for money. It’s not suitable for you if you have larger pets and children, or if you want a pressure mounted or hardware mounted pet gate, or if you want a super tall pet gate

Richell 3-in-1 Convertible Elite Pet Gate

View On Amazon

Features

A 3 in 1 pet gate that can function as a regular pet gate, a room divider and a pet exercise pen

It’s made of a hardwood construction that look great inside the house

Comes in both 4 panel and 6 panel options

The 6 panel option is meant for small to medium pets approx 8.8 to 44 lbs

Comes with a door in the middle of the gate that is also lockable. The door allows you to pass through the gate without moving it

The panels can stand up in a straight line, or they can bend to 90 degrees – giving you a Z shape configuration gate

If you decide to make the gate into the exercise pen configuration, you can buy a cover for the pen

You can also buy a floor tray for the pen so that your pets don’t scratch your floor and so any mess is caught

There are caps that go between the panels. When you remove them, you can fold down the panels and store them away

The 6 panel pen measures 68.9 x 31.9 x 31.5 inches

The 6 panel freestanding gate measures 129.9-134.4 inches wide

The 6 panel room divider cover a length 135.8 inches wide

 

Drawbacks

Not a cheap pet gate

Not for large pets

Can’t be wall mounted if that is your preference

The door doesn’t latch super strong, but it does enough to provide a clear close

There are lighter pet gates out there, but the weight makes the gate more sturdy when freestanding

 

Overall

If you have small to medium sized pets, and you want a pet gate 3 in 1 that will look nice inside, the Richell 3 in 1 Convertible is worth the money.

Regalo Easy Open 50 Inch Wide Baby Gate

View On Amazon

Features

A walk through door pet and baby gate

A 30 inch tall gate

Fits spaces and openings between 29-50 inches wide

Includes two extensions kits 6-inch wide and 12-inch wide

Is pressure mounted when you install it

For children 6-24 months, as well as pets

Certified by American Material Society Testing and Juvenile Product Manufacture Certification

Comes with hardware to mount to the wall

Can be used for medium to large dogs

 

Drawbacks

Not as easy to assemble as other pet gates

The pressure mounts aren’t very strong – will have to mount with the mounting hardware if you want a solid and sturdy gate

The gate really only work up to a certain width. Once you start getting up to 50 inches, the gate lacks the length in the gate and the screws to be installed properly.

 

Overall

Overall there are some design flaws in this gate that prevent it from being worth the money. Instead you can check out other similar height and width gates on the market such as the Dreambaby Chelsea Extra Tall and Wide Gate (on Amazon) for example. There are others too.

Drawbacks

Not a big concern, but door only swings one way

Installation/assembly takes a little bit of time and effort to get the gate position and assembled as it should be to have the gate working 100% right – but once it’s in place it works well

The pressure mounts aren’t anywhere near as secure as the hardware mounts included in the kit

 

Overall

The gate is OK. To have it super secure and prevent it slipping around you may have to use the hardware mounts and fix it to a wall. Apart from that, there’s not a whole heap wrong with the gate
