It is perfect. very easy to install and comes with a bag of zip-ties. It does not block the view and it is barley noticeable from the outside. My cat no longer can get her head through the railing.

great product

…Highly recommend this product for anyone with small pets or children.

Very good way to secure a banister

…It also works really well with pets as there is nothing they can chew or scratch.

Banister protection for our little dogs.

…I know it was originally made for small toddlers and kids, but it works just great for pets too!

Five Stars

…Price was affordable and now my pets can hang out on my balcony with me.

So happy to have this

A neat way to keep pets safe around banisters

So safe & sturdy--you can even cut out a cat door so pets can use the stairs

We've had this plastic banister guard for several months now, and it works incredibly well. Sure, it's a little noisy when my toddler bangs on it like a drum. And it does show fingerprints. But it's much better than the alternative--having a little one get stuck between banister rails or even fall through. The plastic is also stiff and sturdy enough to use as a cat door.…

Great for protecting small pets

I bought this actually because of my pets.…

Not too bad but nothing special

…But, in any case, it's going to be very obvious once it's on, but if you are using it for kids or pets, you're willing to put up with seeing it, I guess.…

Great

Great for small pets!

Great Quality for low price!!

…Would definitely recommend this to everyone who wants to keep their kids or pets safe.

Perfect for renters with pets or children

…I would recommend this to anyone with cats, dogs, other pets, and young children/toddlers, especially to those who rent as this is non-damaging and easily removed.…

Could a pet chew through it?

Depending on the pet I would say it is possible. The mesh is a nylon netting so if your pet likes to chew on things they would most likely be able to chew this.

Excellent product

…If using it for a pet, attach the bottom edge with the eye hooks first and then attach the straps to the top rail.

Attractive and Functional

…We were worried about our one year playing outside and our pets.…

I love this product

…I have wooden open stairs and I'm always trying to keep our pets and kids from climbing on the stairs.…

I don't know about babies and staircases, but it works with keeping your cat out of the windows

I actually got this for my cat because she used to tear up the blinds that hung in my bedroom window to look outside where I used to live (it wasn't a pet friendly complex but I still had her there with me secretly, shh).…

Effective and headache free!

…However, worth noting our pets have not chewed or scratched at it, and our kiddo is young enough to not have access to scissors, etc.…

The company emailed twice with detailed instructions for installing which was very nice.

A bit difficult to install but necessary to keep baby (pets) from going through stair rails.…

Perfect for keeping baby and pets safe!

Exactly what we needed for out landing. And easy to install and you can barely see that it's there.

Perfect to protect small pets or babies

You can't even see it. Used it to protect our puppy Chihuahua. Only took me about 15 minutes to put up. Very worth the peace of mind.

Keeps my pets contained, but doesn't obstruct visibility

Great for what it's designed for. Easily stands up to 25 pound dog pawing at it (and very will marking.) For those who complain it is translucent and not clear... peel the protective layer off.

how thick is it?

Thick enough to stop a toddler or pet.

I'm not sure how many need , one banister measures 83 and the other one measures 115.5 inches, I think the height is right 31 in

There are different sized rolls. This stuff is awesome. I would recommend to anyone. Protects both children and pets. You can also cut it.

Great for pets!

Purchase this product to line the railings of my 2nd floor apartment balcony so my French Bulldog puppy couldn’t sneak through the rails. It worked perfectly! He’s able to run around, and play with his toys on the porch and I don’t have to worry about anything going overboard. The length was a bit longer than listed so it really worked out perfectly! The zip ties and eyelets provided made installation a breeze.…

Great for pets!!

Super durable and easy to use. I needed a clear fencing to prevent my small dog from trying to go through the balcony columns in our high rise condo. The material is durable and isn't too large of an eye sore either!

Looking for some fencing for my porch but need a door way what do you suggest ?

This netting is great for porches to keep pets and kids safe! It is tied on the porch by zip ties so it would not work as a door way.

How much weight can it hold?

The mesh is not meant to bear weight, just to provide a barrier to keep children or pets from getting through a railing. It's study enough for it's intended purpose.

Great for pets too

We bought this so our cats can hang out on our balcony without 24/7 supervision and they loved it. They spent most of the summer hanging outside, enjoying the breeze. It's made of barely opaque, white plastic, but that it pretty easy to work with and trim to match. You really can't even see it from afar.

Great pet protection.

We have a balcony and a 6 pound Chihuahua so we decided we needed to keep him on the balcony and not have to watch him all the time. He loves to be outside and watching the goings on. This works great. Easy to install. Somewhat translucent so you don’t really notice its there.…

Great product... keeps kids and pets safe

Perfect to keep pets and children from getting stuck in between slates on a porch.

Very easy to install works well

This was very easy to install and has worked very well in keeping small children and pets from falling between the slats of the railing.

GREAT IDEA

Great for the child or pet gates to protect the walls.

Sturdy wall cups for baby/dog gates

These are great for my pet gate. Sturdy and keep my pet gate in place even when I have some pets put their weight on the gate.…

Good pet gate .

These were easy to install and protect my walls. The gate is high enough that my dog can’t jump over . I especially liked the walk through section .

Pet gate pads

Great product that worked nicely with my pet gates.

Helps stabilize pet gate

Only have used these about a week so can’t say on long term durability. So far are working great

Works great

Works great with pet gate.

Work great with baby/pet gates.

These little rubber-back cups are great. Sometimes with pressure mounted gates they may move and shift a bit where they meet the wall. But these little cups solved that problem for me. Well worth buying.

…Works well with the pet gate I ordered. Would order again if I need another pet gate!

Modern home design often includes wide entrances or transition spaces between rooms. As homes have grown in scale, so too have hallways, staircases, and room thresholds. If your home has entryways that are wider than standard, an extra-wide baby gate may be exactly what you need to keep your little one safe. An extra-wide baby gate may double as a play yard or barrier, giving you some extra configuration options. These wider gates range from the simple, such as a single mesh panel, to the sophisticated, such as an arched gate with decorative slats. Whether you need to keep your baby contained inside or out, rest assured there's a gate out there with the width and extension capabilities to keep up with your home's layout.
Baby gates are a great way to keep your little one out of harm's way while giving you peace of mind. They're easy to install and don't block access to rooms or areas for safety reasons. There are several types of baby gates on the market, which can make it challenging to find the right option for your home. This list features some of the top options available. 
Keeping your little one away from the rest of the house is no easy feat. There are so many ways to keep them in and out of sight, but a simple stair child gate can help make this process easier. Stair gates have come a long way since they first came on the market. They're safer than ever before and allow you to control where your child can go without worrying about them running off or tripping over something.
