Safety Gate Choices

Before you begin your search for the perfect safety gate, you should know the different types of gates available to help you make a well-informed decision. Evenflo has a number of safety gates for you to choose from, ranging from pressure mount gates to extra wide baby gates that can fit even the oddest spaces. They also are available in a wide range of materials such as wood, plastic, metal and fabric. Find the Evenflo safety gate that is perfect for your home!

Pressure Mounted Gates

Pressure mounted gates are great because they are easy to install, simple to move from one location to the next, and you can adjust them to fit into most standard door openings. These versatile safety gates also use rubber bumpers that prevent damage to walls or doors, so your home looks the same as it did before you installed the gate.

Because pressure mounted safety gates use pressure and no hardware is required to install, they should not be used at the top of stairs to prevent injury.

Evenflo offers several pressure-mount baby gates:

Soft & Wide™ Gate

Memory Fit™ Gate

Position & Lock™ Gate

Position & Lock™ Plus Gate

Easy Walk-Thru™ Gate

Hardware Mounted Gates

If you plan on using a gate in one spot,  hardware mounted gates are great because they can be installed directly into your wall or other fixtures using screws. When installed properly, these gates are extremely sturdy and secure, making it safe to use most hardware mount gates at the top of stairs to prevent falls.

Pass-thru Gates

Pass-thru design gates come with swinging doors for you to quickly and easily pass through. These are great in high traffic areas. When purchasing a pass-through gate, it is important for you to buy a gate with handles that require two actions to open the doors in order to keep baby safe inside the secured area. Also remember that top-of-stair gates should have a door that swings in only one direction to avoid opening over the stairs and causing potentially hazardous situations.

Barrier Gates

If you are dealing with a low traffic area and want to keep your little one secure, barrier gates may be the best option because they do not have doors and serve as a barrier between rooms. They are also pressure mounted and typically lightweight, making it very easy for you to move and reinstall in another area.

X-tra Wide and Odd Spaces

For areas of your house that have extra spacious openings or odd angles, gates with special sizing and angles are made to accommodate such tricky areas. These gates make it easier for you to secure areas that other gates cannot typically fit. They can also be pressure or hardware mounted, giving you more options when choosing a gate that best fits into your home and, most importantly, keeps baby safe.

Banister Kits

A banister kit allows a pressure or hardware mounted gate to be set up without drilling into the banister and therefore preventing damage to your home. You will need a banister kit for each banister to be installed.
