Summer Infant Retractable Gate review

Product alert

The sample of this stair gate that we tested failed multiple safety tests that form part of the EU standard for safety gates. These failures could potentially put your child’s safety at risk.

Summer Infant told us:

‘No caregiver has ever reported an incident or injury involving the Summer Infant Retractable Gate, Item# 27256. While in production, the gate was periodically submitted to a third party laboratory to confirm compliance with applicable safety standards, including BS EN 1930:2011. The company stopped producing this item in 2019, and we have no plans to make more. We diligently review our products to make sure they meet applicable standards.’

Reviewed

The Summer Infant Retractable safety gate is a mesh barrier that can be pulled across when you need it, and then retracted back into the fitting when not in use, a bit like a window blind. Find out whether this safety stair gate barrier is easy to fit and use, and passes all the safety tests we put it through, by reading the full review.
