Still Good, but Used to be Great
I purchased this exact same gate 8 years ago when our first child was born. It is installed at the top of our stairs and is still there today, working perfectly. When it came time to purchase a bottom of stair gate for our new toddler, I went back to this gate since I knew it was good. I purchased the gate and when it arrived I was a bit disappointed. The gate from 8 years ago is much more sturdy. The wood is thicker (considerably), and the plastic is heavier. The slats on the old gate are round where the slats on this gate are rectangular and very thin. When I press on them in the middle (like a toddler would), I hear creaking of the wood almost like it's going to crack. When installed, the thinner, lighter plastic parts don't make for the same solid latching like the previous version does. Overall, I decided to keep it since it is for a bottom of stair application, but if it were for the top of stairs, I would have returned it and looked elsewhere.
All in all, I wish KidCo would have maintained the quality from the old gate. It seems they've cut corners to save money on materials and it lead to a much lower quality product.

Nice, Lightweight & Easy To Install
We've had the opportunity to use and install the KidCo Angle Mount gate and really like it. It's easy to install, especially if you use the installation kit (not included, costs extra). Because of it's design, you can install in a location that doesn't necessarily line up straight - at a bit of an angle for example. This is a really convenient feature, as we've used other gates in the past, and because the studs in the wall don't line up perfectly from one side to the other, we could install it in a bit of an angle. The only thing that we found is that the locking cap came off easily, but I just bent back the locking clip a bit, and it now works perfectly. Also, after a bit of use, the mechanism that prevents the gate from opening in the opposite direction seems to spin a bit. It still holds in place, but with a bit of force can move out of place. We found that our older kids seemed to push it too hard when trying to latch the gate, but after showing them how to lock it properly, we no longer have this problem. What we like most about it, is that it is really light weight, and that it can easily be removed if you need to more space when moving furniture etc. Watch our video review below.
