Why does my Paws Portable no longer stay tight where it is mounted?
Because this is a pressure-mounted gate, the gate requires a great amount of tension to be placed upon the panels to maintain a tight fit when properly installed. When installing the gate, you do not want to start with the panels tightly fitted into your space. You actually may want to have it fit into your space a little bit loosely, with the rubber bumpers lightly brushing the surface on each side. Once you lock the locking handle down into place, it will create the tension/pressure required by bumping the panels out a little bit. If you initially have it placed into the space too tightly, there is nowhere for that tension to go and will result in the plastic cracking or wearing. This can cause the handle, slide and/or gear to break and the gate will no longer hold pressure.
