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 look, multiple size options and easy to open and close. Pretty basic but it’s a little bit of a hassle to unlatch and move if needed Sep 13, 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

  • This gate was super easy to install and is very easy to use! Has been sturdy and safe for both baby and dogs, while making it easy to go in and out between rooms Aug 31, 2018

  • We love this gate! Easy to install and use! We have had this for 1 year with no problems! Aug 28, 2018

  • We use this gate at the top of our stairs (between our wall and banister). It makes a loud-ish clang when opened/closed — something to consider if you’re installing it near a light sleeper’s bedroom. Aug 08, 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

  • Easy to install. Easy to use. Easy to serve it's intended purpose. Aug 06, 2018

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

  • Works well for both baby girl and the dogs. Jul 11, 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
