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.

  • Our favorite babygate and we owned 3. Easy to use and our son never learned how to break it open like others we had. Dec 07, 2019

    Love this! so easy to use and set up! Nov 16, 2019

  • Love that you don't have to step over this gate. Also looks nicer then your standard wood gates. I did have an issue with the handle breaking on me though and had to open it up to fix it. Nov 07, 2019

  • Essential for keeping the kids where they should be. We used it for several years before removing it. It did damage the wall a bit but my kids were rough on it Oct 31, 2019

    We use outside our toddlers room since she’s not in a crib anymore! Works for what we intended. Oct 22, 2019

  • I installed this by myself quickly and the opening is easy to understand after a couple tries! Oct 01, 2019

  • So easy to install and STURDY. our kiddo never figured out how to open it, but it was easy enough for adults to use it and use it one handed. It also wasn’t a tripping hazard like some. Sep 19, 2019

    Love this, it's easy to install, sturdy, stays in place and keeps baby safe. Particularly love the bottom stopper that prevents the door from swinging open should baby be able to push it open. Sep 11, 2019

  • This is okay. Not as easy to use as some other door gates. It does the job and keeps baby safe though Sep 04, 2019

  • Very simple to setup and is affordable! Easy to use! Aug 27, 2019

  • Super easy to install! Aug 27, 2019

    • Amber F.
    • Granby , Massachusetts

    This product is great. Best part is I don’t have to put holes in my walls to use it. Aug 18, 2019

    We’ve got two of these to keep him in certain areas and out of others, I love how wide the opening is compared to some other gates. Aug 18, 2019

  • Super easy to adjust length and toddler hasn't figured out how to open the gate yet so 5 stars! Aug 16, 2019

  • I like it a lot better than the wooden gates! It can be hard to get tight enough so that toddlers can't knock it over and get hurt. Son quickly figured out how to open it at 2/2.5 years by watching. Aug 15, 2019

    • Erika B.
    • Battle Creek, Michigan

    Worked great to keep our kids out of the kitchen! Aug 07, 2019

  • setup is easy, nice that you can open it up to walk through rather than stepping over it Aug 01, 2019

  • Great surfy gate that swings both ways! We have one in every doorway in our house Jul 07, 2019

  • I have had this for years! I recommend screwing the gate into the wall or else the rubber will rub off and scratch the wall. Jul 03, 2019

  • Terrible quality. Fell apart after a few months of using it! Jul 01, 2019

  • 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
