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.

    I do really liek this gate, we have 3 of them up in my house. I do feel the one gate we use the most has had to be replaced approx every 7-8 months. Apr 29, 2020

  • This was perfect to contain my baby’s-toddler out of areas that weren’t safe. They couldn’t figure out how to open. Apr 27, 2020

  • Truly a life saver around the house! It's easy to install and fits easily in doorways. We use them to keep our little ones out of the kitchen while we're cooking and away from the stairs. Apr 10, 2020

  • Works great Mar 18, 2020

  • Latch broke on gate in no time making it unsafe. Mar 11, 2020

  • Pro: Easy to install, sturdy in the beginning Con: It tends to shift off the wall overtime and that was my main concern. Mar 07, 2020

  • We have two of these in our house. I love that that are two way, they are solid and sturdy, and can be opened easily with one hand. I was dreading baby gates. But these are great! Feb 28, 2020

  • We have 3 of these in our home and love them. Easy to pass through the gate m, but complicated enough that our 10 month old can’t open them. Installation was a breeze. Feb 26, 2020

    Works well and feels safe and secure. The lock isn’t too complex which is good so my older kids can get through without my help. Feb 25, 2020

  • I used this gate to block off our basement stairs. I love it so much I continue to use it even though my children are big enough to go up and down the stairs safely. Feb 17, 2020

  • We have 2 one closes easily the other the clasp gets stuck so you have to hit the top before you close it either way we love that they're so tall and my 2 year old hasn't figured them out Feb 12, 2020

  • Worked great! Feb 11, 2020

    Love this because it’s easy for adults to open with one hand so you can hold baby and still get around the house easily. Works great at keeping the dog out of areas too! Feb 10, 2020

  • Stellar safety gate for our steep stairs. Feb 08, 2020

  • These are awesome! We have 2 sets of stairs in our house, and still have these in place for my 2yo. They're easy enough to open while still preventing littles from going through. Feb 07, 2020

  • Got the job done but eventually my 2 year old figured it out. Also left holes in our wall :/ Feb 01, 2020

  • We have a couple of these. Theyre easy to set up and I love how they swing and lock shut and I dont have to close and lock it behind me. Jan 29, 2020

  • We love this gate! Super sturdy, easy to install and keeps baby in! Jan 09, 2020
