Let’s face it--when baby becomes mobile, there are countless things for them to get into. The Munchkin Easy-Close Metal Gate closes on its own so when you’re chasing after your little one you don’t have to *also* worry about it being left open accidentally. One key feature is this gate doesn’t require drilling, making it super easy to install, and with it’s wide opening you won’t restrict the doorways of your home too much. It’s also tall enough that baby won’t be able to reach the childproof lock at the top any time soon.

The Catch: Some note that the latch starts to stick as time passes.

  • Easy to install. Does the job, keeping child out. Easy to use Jun 14, 2018

  • A must for when your kid starts exploring the house Jun 09, 2018

    These gates are much more convenient than the gates that don’t open May 23, 2018

  • We like this gate because it was easy to install and it's simple enough for adults to open and close, but great for keeping baby on the correct side of the gate. May 18, 2018

  • Bought two and I love it. Very sturdy and easy to put together. May 14, 2018

  • Easy installation and the choice of securing to a wall or the use pressure make this gate stand out. It is also available with extenders for the wide openings! A modern and sleek look with stability! May 04, 2018

  • These work great! They keep the kids safe and out of unwanted places. The only issue is they take the paint off the walls. May 03, 2018

    Perfect gate for a doorway or stairs. We have used ours for years and it looks and works great!! Apr 12, 2018

  • We have several Munchkin gates and the auto-close is one I do NOT recommend. The latch/lock broke after 1 month of daily use. I have had 2 other "manual" gates for almost a year and they still work. Apr 12, 2018

  • I like that it’s very quiet so I don’t have to worry about waking baby up when I’m leaving her room. We got this gate after she made it out of two others, so far she hasn’t made it through this one. Apr 11, 2018

  • Essential for my active toddler Apr 06, 2018

    Tried 3 other baby gates before finally finding this one that worked well for the top of our stairs. Easy enough for grownups to open but tough enough to keep kiddos out. Sturdy enough for toddler. Mar 19, 2018

  • Great baby gate for the price. Very easy to use and install. Mar 03, 2018

  • Super steardy! I bought 2 of these to create a larger barrier and it works wonderfully. Feb 25, 2018

  • We've installed these early to help get our dog accustomed to having his paths altered before it's baby time. So far they've done really well! I suppose the real test is still to come, hmm? Feb 19, 2018

    So nice to have a door! Feb 12, 2018

  • Easy to install, open and close. Feb 08, 2018

    We have a very wide staircase, so we had to buy the additional gate posts. It works great! So easy and not a hassle like other more removable gates. Also, it looks nicer too. Jan 30, 2018

  • Easy to install, stays in its place, keeps the baby away from stairs without making it difficult for you to pass through because the gate is easy to open and close. Jan 23, 2018

  • Excellent alternative to classic wooden gates. I love the walk through option. Much better than trying to jump over while juggling baby, laundry etc. Jan 14, 2018

  • Built very sturdy. Easy to open and close. The red and green indicator also helps. The older children can open easy and my larger dogs do not try to jump it. Jan 13, 2018
