How wide can you get a baby gate?
Most baby gates will fit a range of sizes from 39” to 52” wide. This happens by adding extensions to the gate. Extensions either come with the gate or are sold separately (make sure you read the manufacturers description). This style of baby gate can either be pressure mounted or hardware mounted to fit in your space.

How long do you use baby gates?
Baby gates are generally regarded as safe and necessary for children between the ages of 6 months and 2 years.
Which way should a baby gate open?
Most will swing open only one way, although you can decide which way you want a gate to swing. At the top of the stairs, a gate should swing away from the stairs (not over them) for maximum safety.
Are pressure-mounted baby gates safe for top of stairs?
They should be used only where falling isn’t a hazard, such as between two rooms or to discourage your little explorer from climbing up stairs. Pressure-mounted gates are not secure enough to use at the top of stairs, so never use them that way, no matter how much you want to avoid drilling holes into your walls.
Can you put 2 retractable gates together?
The widest any other retractable gate can cover is 55 inches; Retract-A-Gate can accommodate openings up to 72 inches. Any other gate is limited to its maximum opening; several Retract-A-Gates can connect together to cover as wide as you need (this is for special circumstances only).
What age should baby gates be removed?
Install gates in homes with children between 6 months and 2 years of age. If possible, remove the gates when the child turns 2, or when the child has learned to open the gate or climb over it.
When should I take my baby gate off the bedroom?
But how do you know when it is safe to take down baby gates? A very vague rule of thumb is that kids up to the age of two years need extra protection. Another rule of thumb is that once the child’s chin is at the same level as the top of the gate the gate should be removed.
