When choosing and installing a baby gate you should consider the following:

  •     Be proactive and install gates before your toddler begins to crawl. Generally, gates are for children between the ages of 6 months and 2 years old.
  •     Put gates at the foot and the top of staircases, on doorways and in hallways as needed.
  •     Use gates to keep children away from dangerous areas of your home like the Kitchen.
  •     Some are safer than others. Hardware mounted gates are the most secure and stable. Accordion gates are not as secure. Pressure gates can be pushed over, so they should only be used in between rooms or in hallways, and never on stairs.
  •     That the gate bears a safety-approved label (certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association).
  •     Make sure the gate is free of splinters, cracks, and anything that could catch on a person.
  •     Check the specs to ensure that the gate is the correct size for the space that is being blocked.
  •     When installing safety gates for stairs ensure the gate is hardware mounted at the top and bottom.
  •     Extra wide safety gates are ideal for non-standard door openings and long spans of space.
  •      When you need to expand past a doorway or walkway and create a ‘dip” into a room, expandable gates can be considered.
  •     Avoid raising the height of the gate to the point that your child could crawl under it.
  •     Make sure you keep safety gates closed at all times. Children are curious and they are fast!
  •     Consider a gate that allows easy one hand operation for adults. They are great when you are holding household items or of course your baby too!
  •     Use gates with auto-closing latches and auto-lock features to add an additional layer of childproofing.
  •     When mounting points are not straight across from each other, angle mount gates are an excellent option for top of stairs and areas where walls do not match up, and they are easy to use.
  •     Many baby gate brands have quick release hardware so that it is easy to remove gates as needed—hardware systems range from wall-mounted to pressure-mounted gates.
  •     Look at what your safety gate is constructed of and look for durable, sturdy materials that will last. We advocate, for example for steel, aluminum and hard wood construction, to name a few.
  •     Remember that they can be used to keep pets out of unwanted areas and away from children too.  
  •     To make outdoor decks and balconies safer, railnets help prevent children from the areas between rails. If you have a pool or waterway nearby, extra precautions such as mesh pool fences and gates are recommended.


Safety Precautions to Take After Installing A Baby Gate

Even if your home is properly childproofed, it only takes a second for a baby or toddler to fall, get into something they shouldn’t, or put something dangerous in their mouths. To keep your family safe, you should also:

  •     Know where your children are at all times, your watchful eye is the best way to safeguard young children.
  •     Install video baby monitors and cameras to keep an eye on your children if you need to leave them unattended.
  •     Ensure every adult in your home knows how to perform CPR.
  •     Have a fully stocked first-aid kit in your home.
  •     Keep important numbers displayed or saved as emergency numbers in your phone - this includes primary caregivers, poison control, and your child’s doctor.
  •     Carpet stairways to make them less slippery
