Amazing Gate

*Picture Pending*
I saw the most amazing thing the other day at KMart. It's a swinging baby gate that does not need any hardware (meaning you don't have to screw it into the wall). Which is great because no matter how hard I've tried I've never been able to get a nail into cinderblocks. It's a tension gate, similar to most baby gates, with a "door".
Ashlyn loves our kitchen drawers and all the knives and lysol that are in them. We've tried the normal baby gates, but we don't necessarily enjoy jumping over them all day or putting them back in place once we've moved them to avoid jumping over them.
So now it's up and has been for about a week. As I look over at it, the door is not latched shut, in fact it's swinging open and has been in that position all day. However, it still does the trick. Instead of keeping Ashlyn out of the kitchen because she's blocked from the kitchen, it keeps her out because she's busy swinging on the door!
Price of product: $35 (with special holiday coupon $15)
Ease of putting it together: 2 1/2stars (Rust did it, he's so much better at knobs than I am)
Overall satisfcation: 4 1/2 stars (there's the slight problem of it peeling off our paint)

It sounds like Ashlyn has a new toy.
