Types of Baby Gates
These baby gates use a tension system to stay upright. The plus side of pressure mounted baby gates is that they’re easy to move around. They also don’t put holes in your walls or require much assembly. However, they won’t be able to stand up to someone falling over them or strong pressure. If your child is strong enough, he/she could push this gate over.
Hardware mounted baby gates are the safest solution. They use caps that you screw into the wall to anchor your gates. With this kind of fortification, the odds of knocking over your baby gate are very low. They’re extremely sturdy and can still be moved around your house if you install caps in different locations.
While your child is rampaging around your home with newfound legs, you won’t want to inhibit your furry children from roaming the house. Some baby gates have small openings for cats to get through. Some have larger gates you can open for dogs. Just make sure the opening is smaller than your child or the gate will fail to do its job!
