I hate reviews that read like advertising.
I have written hundreds of reviews in regards to items sold through BargainFox. The good, the bad and, sometimes, the ugly are included without favour or obligation.

REVIEW ON LINDAM 28cm SAFETY GATE EXTENSION.
This is sold through BargainFox as a "" item at a cost of £16:00 (July 2017)
items come with a promise of included next day delivery.
You cannot rely on the next day delivery promise.
There is no indication as to any potential additional postage charges applicable to non members.
I am a member. My extension was needed very quickly and was not delivered as promised. Two days.
The Extension comes in a product marked cardboard box. There are no installation instructions on the box.
They are on a leaflet which is very poorly cobbled together. There is also a tin spanner, useless, much too small to afford the tension needed. There are also a couple of end cups.
The frame matches the height of the gate. It is a solid and weighty piece of metal finished in a smooth white plasticised coating.
That said, A little common sense coupled with experience had the gate plus extension in about 10 minutes. A spare hand would half this time.
The first thing to do is decide which side of the gate you want the extension to be on.
If, as in my pictures you have a wall, set it up to open the gate against the wall. That puts it out of the way for access and egress.
Remove the plastic infills from the extension is to be added, put the extension joiners into the same holes from which you just removed the infills.
Put the infills into the unused side of the extension.
Place the tightening nuts and feet, supplied with the gate into the four infills, two at either end, top and bottom.
Ensure level and upright with a spirit level, not supplied.
I suggest using a couple of adjustable spanners for the nut tightening.
The spanner supplied with the gate is rubbish at best.
Very easy to attach to the gate and install. Bought at this source at this price easily represents the best value I could find. Delivery, (even late as it was) is a bonus.
All parts fitted as they should. They need to be a little tight and this is the case. Once assembled they are not designed for easy removal but a flat head screwdriver and a tack hammer would get them out if need be.
I would not hesitate to buy this again.
FITTING PROPERLY IS THE KEY.
I hope that this review has been of assistance to you the potential buyer. If so please click on the useful review
