fantastic product--sturdy, simple, folds down completelyApr 10, 2007
By Book Lovin' Mom
I spend a lot of time looking at and comparing products before I buy one--especially when it comes to baby/toddler safety products. I looked at almost all the other bed rails before purchasing this one, and I'm thrilled with it.
First of all, it's very easy to assemble and install. It took my husband about 5 to 10 minutes to put everything together. He said it was easy. The system used for making sure the bed rail doesn't push out from the side of the bed is a very simple strap system that installs quickly, even with our new heavy, super-plush twin beds. Once installed, the bed rail doesn't budge an inch. Also, the mechanism for folding the bedrail down (completely down!) when you want to make a bed is very easy...just slip the lock to the side, and then use a hand on each side of the bedrail to lift and fold--easy for adults, but not at all obvious for kids. When you're done making the bed, just fold the rail back up and it clicks itself into place.
Second, it looks great. It's clean, crisp white--not some of the other glaring colors I've seen in other bed rails. It's very tall (perfect for the thick mattresses sold these days), and very long. We keep it in the upright position once the bed is made, but it's simple enough to fold that you could keep it folded down and more out of sight when the bed is made.
Third (and maybe this should have been second ;), it's safe. Very safe. We're using it with our two five-year olds, and the height of it is perfect for them. I don't think they could roll or push themselves out of bed if they tried. The frame is very sturdy. It comes with a bar that goes through the middle of the mesh (covered and padded, of course). It's removeable if you want (or if your bed is too thick), but we keep it in because it seems to add even more sturdiness and strength.
I couldn't be happier with this product. All of the others I looked at seemed to be either a mess to install, or they didn't fold down, or they looked awful. This one was great on all three counts!

Beware: Day 2 w/ Rails and She's Already Fallen OutNov 01, 2007
By J. Benz
I bought two of these for my three year old, who we were transitioning from her crib to her "big girl" bed. We got one for each side of the bed. They were easy to assemble, looked nice (for bed rails), and were easy to fold down. The only issue for us in assembly and general operation is that they are so tall in height that when we fold them down they do not lie flat against the side of the bed because the height of the rail is taller than the space from the floor to the hinge on the rail.
When we assembled the products, there was an additional metal bar included (you can see it in the picture of the product at the height of the mattress top), which the instructions clearly state is not to be used unless you have an unusally tall mattress. Otherwise, you are told to omit the bar. We do not have an unusually tall mattress (the instructions gave a specific height and we missed it by several inches) so we omitted the bar.
Last night was my daughter's first night sleeping in her bed and all went well. Tonight, however, I heard the frightening thunk of my daughter hitting the hardwood, followed immediately by her cries. It appears she slipped between the upper bar and without the additional bar the mesh was inadequate to hold her on the bed.
Thankfully, she seems fine. I located the metal bars that were supposedly only for the tall mattresses and inserted them immediately because I do not think there would be a way for her to slip out with those installed. Please beware when assembling this product to consider including these rails even if you do not have a tall mattress.

We like it so far!Apr 15, 2009
By Samantha D.
We've had this rail for just over a week now. My son just moved into a "big boy bed" and I did a ton of research into which rail would be best for us. This one seemed to fit the bill. We have a mattress/boxspring combo so happily didn't have the issues that the people with platforms etc have in picking a rail.
It's certainly sturdy and with that middle stabilizer bar in place, doesn't move ANYwhere near enough to let him fall through. I cannot imagine how kids are going through to the floor if this is installed correctly and using that middle bar.
Some pros and cons below. Don't be fooled by that it seems like there's more cons than pros. Not true. I'm just wordier with my complaints.
--It's sturdy and nice-looking. We DID install that middle bar as other reviewers recommended. I definitely think it's a good idea. I can't see how it's as stable without it.
--You can lower it down to make changing sheets etc super easy. I love this. I also lower it when sitting in the rocker next to the bed telling a story or singing to him - otherwise I can't see him, nor he me! It's also mercifully quiet when you raise it back up and snap it into place. I have a SUPER light sleeper and he doesn't stir when I do that.
--The mechanism to lower it works smoothly and well, and I can't find a way that a child, alone, could do it him/herself.
--It seems quite safe and serves its purpose well. This is my favorite part really - that it is SAFE and stable and keeps him from falling out.
--You need a decent amount of room from floor to top of boxspring (I think another reviewer said 18 inches?) in order to be able to have this flush against the side when lowered. We don't. So it doesn't go flat to the floor, but stays on an angle. As another reviewer note, when like that it makes a "ladder" for the child to get to the bed. I don't like that - I don't want him climbing on the thing at all, so I mostly leave it up now. I lower it mostly when tucking sheets. Disappointing - I loved that it could be left down, but that's a fault of my bed, NOT of the rail.
--We found it a tad bit confusing as to how to properly tighten the anchor thing. In fairness, it had been a long day and maybe if we were "fresh" it would've been like "ohhhhh duhh!" or something. Putting it together was a snap, but we hassled with the anchor thing a bit. Got it, though (it's really NOT hard) and now it's nice and sturdy. I also agree with the other reviewers in that you really SHOULD use that middle bar. We have a rather low mattress and that bar falls JUST below it. So we lucked out in that the bar isn't against him in any way.
--One nit-picky thing, but one that I think the company really needs to look at, is that after just a week, the mesh in the top corner is sort of slightly bubbled out from my 3 year old putting his foot there. Seems like it should be stronger or better held inside or something. Now don't misunderstand, it's not ripped, it's not way out, it's just not totally smooth in that area anymore. Again, seems like mine can't be the only kid who puts their foot on it, or elbow, or whatever. (That, primarily, is the reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars, by the way.)
That's kind of it I think. Works as it should - goes on relatively easily - looks nice - most of all seems super safe. That last bit is all that really matters.

Works great with California King platform bed.Feb 11, 2008
By V. M. Anderson
I have a california king platform bed and had a hard time finding a rail that works. I set this up with my husband and had a relatively easy time with it. I used it for protecting my baby from falling off. It is sturdy and long enough. I also put pillow around it so my baby can not fall into the slit between the rail and mattress. It is easy to fold down and use and I highly recommend this product.

Great for Co-sleeping!May 05, 2008
By J. Russo
"cosleeping twin mommy"
We put these on our bed as our 7 month old twins were starting to move quite a bit & we were worried about falls. They are fantastic! Very easy to put the sides up & down and quiet enough that you can do so without waking sleeping kiddos.
Very happy with these! No problem putting them on both sides of a queen sized bed.
