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 and use. Great for smaller children. My 2.5 year old figured out how to open on her own so not the greatest for older kids! Jun 27, 2019

  • We have the extended gates screwed directly into the walls and they are very sturdy. My son pushes and pulls and they don’t wiggle at all. The handle mechanism does stick sometimes but it’s livable. Jun 10, 2019

  • No more tirpping over baby gates! This is truly the best baby gate! You have to read the instructions because it doesn't seem like it is going to fit but it will and will be worth it. May 31, 2019

  • This gate is a life saver!! I used it when my daughter was a toddler to make sure she stayed out of the laundry room, where we keep our cleaning products! I even used it to keep my dog in at night! May 14, 2019

  • the best gate we found! so easy to install and hasnt given us any problems! :) May 03, 2019

  • Great baby gate! We have two large dogs who love the baby but for safety reasons, we never leave them unattended. Super easy and quick to open/close Apr 12, 2019

  • I like that it adjusts to multiple door sizes. It would be nicer if the gate auto closed. The piece the stops the gate from swinging both ways comes off easy and is a safety concern for my house. Apr 10, 2019

  • We bought this gate 3 years ago. It stays up great! Its has lasted use 3 years and still going strong! It does tare up the wall a little, but I feel that minor! Apr 10, 2019

  • W e have two of these in our home. One at the top of the staircase and the other at the bottom. They have been a lifesaver with two boys who loved to climb the stairs unattended. reliable & sturdy. Apr 02, 2019

  • Was hard to install for me anyway Mar 24, 2019

    I have a Boxer Dog who is part of the family and well now we have put this metal gate up. It’s so easy to set up and to open. The price is great as well Mar 15, 2019

  • Being pregnant with my second child this gate makes it easy for me to get in and out of certain rooms or up and down the stairs. I used to not mind hopping over other brands, but now I can’t go back. Mar 10, 2019

    We use this at the top of our stairs. It's easy to use and keeps the kids off the stairs. It was pretty easy to install. Mar 10, 2019

  • This gate is so much better than the wooden ones! Love not having to take it down each time! And no permanent hardware. Also love that my daughter can't climb it like she can the other kinds! sturdy! Feb 27, 2019

    A must need!!! Feb 27, 2019

  • Haven’t really done anything for the baby yet since she can’t move around but it was super easy to install Feb 18, 2019

  • This gate is great! My littles can't figure out how to open it. I feel confident that they are safe from the stairs when it is closed. It is the best gate we have owned! Feb 16, 2019

  • These were really easy to install. They are sturdy. They close by themselves, which means you dont have to hold anything down to shut them. They do make a very loud click though Feb 12, 2019

    Awesome and the best. Beautiful too. I love it. Kids cant knock it over. It's very strong and sturdy. Definitly get these for your doorways with toddlers. Feb 08, 2019

  • We purchased it to keep our dog out of certain rooms. We lived in an apartment so the fact that you don’t have to nail it in walls was great. Now we use it to keep baby from going down the stairs Jan 25, 2019
