Lattice Channels

This photo of a competitor's grab channel shows the unsafe design where users of the gate can get serious finger injuries when closing the gates. This occurs when grabbing an open gate and unknowingly placing your fingers in the specific areas where the lattice moves up to 40 degrees, shown in the photo. If your finger is holding the angle channel at the pinch point, and the user quickly closes the gate, fingers can be seriously injured, depending on how quick you close the gates, and how quick the reactions are by the user to stop closing the gate.
