    Gate Solutions from Simple Low Cost Set-ups to Unique Home Configurations

    LAS VEGAS, Nev., ABC Kids Expo (October 10, 2010) – Summer Infant, Inc. (“Summer Infant” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:SUMR), is one of the leading manufacturers of baby safety gates in the industry.  For 2011, Summer Infant has expanded its offerings to include all possible price points and home configuration scenarios.

    Taking into account all consumer levels of income, as well as the fact that there are a multitude of home configurations parents need to consider when baby proofing their house, Summer Infant has increased their gate portfolio to make sure all consumer needs are adequately met.  Further, in support of this line it is launching an online comparative tool to help parents narrow down their selection to the most appropriate fit for their need.  Whether a home requires a 32” hardware-mounted gate for the top of the staircase, or a simple one-handed 28” wide pressure-mounted doorway gate, the Company is making sure every child is properly protected.  By combining a range of options with this helpful online tool, it is a win-win situation in helping parents make the right choice.

    “When baby proofing your home, there are many factors that come into play since there are no set standards for door widths, layout, and décor considerations,” states Jason Macari, President and CEO of Summer Infant.  “Additionally, in this economy we wanted to make sure all consumers have an adequate choice of gates and do not have to compromise on safety because it is cost prohibitive.  This comprehensive line targets modest to higher end retails so that all parents can keep their little one safe.”

    Four new affordable gates will now be available to consumers ranging in price from $11.99 to $29.99.  Additionally, Summer Infant is releasing three new gates that solve real world issues with convenient solutions.  They are the:
