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.

  • Great way to keep the door open with peace of mind. My kids can not open it without help, it's easy to install and take down. Aug 31, 2017

  • Recently bought to keep our dog in the kitchen away from baby when we are not able to 100% watch him. Works great and is simple to open Aug 25, 2017

  • So easy to install and open! Haha Jul 21, 2017

  • Such great quality and easy to install! It keeps my dogs separated during feeding time as well as my baby out of the kitchen!! And she can't climb up it because of the vertical pole design!! Jul 12, 2017

  • Have two of these and they work great. We put them by the stairs and they keep my little ones out. Jun 19, 2017

  • These are lifesavers when it comes to having little ones and dogs! Gates open and close easily but click securely so there is no worry that the dogs will be somewhere unexpected. Great buy. Jun 12, 2017

  • We initially got this to keep the dog and cat out of the bedrooms in our house, but this gate is amazing! Super easy to open with one hand and easy to install! Jun 10, 2017

  • We have this gate for the top of our stairs. I think it is a good sturdy gate, but wish it fit a bit tighter. May 08, 2017

  • This gate is good. Glad that I have several May 08, 2017

  • After a while, the latch becomes a pain to open. May 06, 2017

  • Just purchased this but have not been able to put it together yet. Waiting to buy the extensions Apr 13, 2017

    My favorite gates! Easy to set up and look and work so much nicer than gates that require set up each use. I love the ease of walking through. Mar 23, 2017

  • Easy to use! No kids have escaped yet :) Feb 07, 2017

  • I need another of these! I keep it up at the nursery door for now. Easy to put together and it is super easy to open one handed. Jan 25, 2017

    Sturdy, works well, and my toddler hasn't figured out how to open it. Be careful not to put too much weight on it while opening the door so the gate doesn't loosen from the wall. Jan 09, 2017

  • Easy to open and study product. Have purchased them to block stairways Dec 27, 2016

    It fits perfect but it is a little hard to open but I guess I'm Ok with that. Dec 21, 2016

  • Mount it, don't pressure mount it. My daughter has pulled it down on top of herself a number of times. Dec 01, 2016

  • Love this! Easy to work, my 4 year old can open it but it keeps 1 year old in. Kids are hard in it and it hasn't broke in 4 years Nov 15, 2016

  • Bought this gate when my little one became mobile. LOVE that it is adjustable to different door ways and love the latch method of it being more or less a gate door. Oct 17, 2016

    works great to keep the pets out and baby in! Oct 07, 2016

  • It was slightly difficult at first to get up, but it's very easy to use. Oct 05, 2016

  • Very easy to set up, i didn't use the mounting setting. Sep 29, 2016

  • We have this gate and love it! The design is easy to use and to put up in your home Aug 16, 2016

    Once it is installed (a bit tricky) this gate is great! Looks nice and is sturdy. Apr 26, 2016

  • Great for stairs. We can still get through without having to take it down or step over it, and my 2 year old still hasn't figured out how to open it on his own! Apr 19, 2016

    Easy to use. Vertical bars can't be climbed usually. Great for dogs too. U walk thru like a door. Mar 04, 2016
