Baby Gates… again

Just wondering if anyone out there has tried the Summer Infant ‘Sure & Secure’ Super-wide Gate system.  We are considering it – the stairs and banisters do not match up and each gate we have tried so far has pretty much needed to be returned.  But I want real life reviews – good or bad is fine.  I read a few online – mainly good – but a few people have had problems with velcro on the doors.  Anyhow – if you have tried it please let us know – before we spend $120!
