Pressure Fit Baby & Child Safety Gates
When your baby is starting to become mobile, it's important to create a safe environment for them. Safety gates can keep little ones safe by creating a barrier in doorways or on stairs, limiting their adventures to areas that are safer. It's recommended to use a wall-mounted gate on any stairway opening, top or bottom, and a pressure-fit or removable style for doorways. Pressure-fit gates and gates with a step-over bar shouldn't be used at the top of stairs.
Different types of gate opening
All of our gates are designed for easy, one-handed opening by adults, in either a squeeze-and-lift or pull-and-lift action. Our pressure-fit gates can be set to open in one or both directions, which can be changed whenever you need.
How do I install a pressure-fit gate?
Pressure-mounted or pressure-fit gates require no drilling and rely on pressure to stay in place. When you buy a pressure mounted gate from Munchkin, all the tools and fixings you need are included with your gate. The gates must be fitted between two flat, structurally-sound surfaces. Full visual instructions for installation are provided in the instruction manual included with your gate.
Can I use a pressure-fit gate for my dog?
Safety gates can be used for pets, providing they can't fit between the bars (or jump over). Our Easy Fit Plus Deluxe Tall Safety Gate is the tallest of our pressure-fit gates and measures 91cm from the floor to top of the gate.
How to measure for a safety gate
Measuring tapes at the ready! Before buying your baby gate, be sure to measure the height and width you'll need to cover your space. While most safety gates are designed to fit standard doorways, some fit wider spaces and gate extensions are also available. Take the time to measure the doorway or stairway you intend to install your gate in. We recommend measuring from the narrowest point, usually the skirting board, and ensuring the gate you pick isn't wider than that. If you're in doubt about which gate is right for your space, contact our Customer Satisfaction team for support).
