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 use, sturdy, and looks great. This gate was perfect and I would buy it again if we needed one for another part of our home. Oct 03, 2018

    These are the best looking gates. I feel confident with these at the top of my stairs and my 2 year old has not figured out how to open them. Sep 08, 2018

  • We have this gate to keep little ones out of the formal dining area and it works well. Sep 02, 2018

  • There’s no getting through this gate for anyone who is not taller, pretty strong and coordinated!! You have to push a pin and lift at the same time. Love that it swings either way too! Aug 08, 2018

  • Love this gate and its easy to install. Aug 04, 2018
