Product Description

Make your home safer for both you and your little ones with the Safe Step Gate with TripGuard - featuring the next generation in baby gate technology. With a patent-pending floor bar design that’s 50% lower than the standard safety gate, the chance of tripping is minimized as your family passes through. The dual-locking handle is easy for adults, but difficult for small children to operate, and a third lock at the base provides added safety, allowing you to control which way it opens. Ideal for use in doorways, stairways, and halls, this innovative child gate stands 30" tall and fits openings 29.5"-35" wide, and can be extended up to a 54-inch width with additional gate extensions (sold separately).

I recommend this gate wholeheartedly.

The intent is to mount the cups to the wall then the pressure fittings simply sit in the cups.

As far as keeping the kids from opening it, the latch mechanism is pretty well designed.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We have five kids and our eldest is five years old. Suffice it to say, we've "done the rounds" as far as babyproofing equipment goes and we've often been burned by poorly designed cut-rate crap from department stores and (especially) Babies R Us. We currently have four different baby gates in our house, and we've thrown out several more.

I also had high expectations for this gate because the Munchkin Loft is my favorite baby gate period, even though this Munchkin Safe Step Gate is about half the price.

So how did this gate fare? Very well, though I wasn't completely blown away.

At this point, I judge baby gates by three factors. First, how well does it stay in place? Second, can it keep my (surprisingly cleaver) kids from opening it? Third, how well did they think through the design and how well it fits in my home's entryways.

This gate does pretty well on all accounts.

As far as staying in place, it's a pressure mounted gate, which is inherently prone to slippage as the kids try to tear it down or when swinging the gate shut repeatedly over time. HOWEVER, this gate helps prevent the problem with little extras. First, it comes with a sort of wrench for pressure adjustment, which helps you crank it pretty tight. Second, it comes with small plastic keepers to help keep the stoppers in place on the wall. Second and a half, it comes with not only drywall anchors and screws for the keepers (like most pressure mounted gates), but also double-sided sticky tape so you don't have to break out the drill to install the keepers in a less critical spot (use the drywall anchors if you're guarding the top of the stairs).

I purchased this baby gate from Target, but the product is the same. The problem with this gate is that the latch mechanism takes entirely too much force to actuate. The amount of force you have to use to open the gate is so much that the gate rubs on the bottom bar, making it even more difficult to open. I also purchased the wood and metal Munchkin gate, which is almost $20 cheaper, and it is MILES better. The latch on the wood and metal gate is very easy to actuate (for an adult) and the gate swings easily open and closed. I'm going to throw this junk gate into the garbage and buy another of the wood and metal ones.

Save your money, don't buy this product.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
With a grandchild just starting to crawl, we are busily baby proofing our home so we were eager to test this gate. Listed below are details about safety features, ease of use and installation, appearance, etc.

We used it with and without the extensions, on various doors in our house, so I could compare how easy it was to use in different areas. It worked perfectly on each of 3 doors we tested. We are leaving it up to see how it holds up with frequent use so I'll provide updates - if needed.

Please note: we did not use the permanent installation option, with the enclosed screws and hardware, but used the non-permanent mount system. As our grandchild gets older, we can take this down without any holes remaining in our wall from screws, etc.

Ease of installation without the extension: all directions shown through illustrations alone. There are no words. However, there is both an 800 number as well as a website for further help, if needed. I checked out both and will give info about those later.
This gate does not use a tension or spring mount so it takes a bit longer to put in place than those...but really, no big deal. We used the enclosed wrench to tighten the bolts and end pieces for the gate - and that was that. Once in place,it doesn't get knocked off the wall,and opens quickly and easily. This is a major plus to use. Entering and leaving a room through a balky gate is frustrating.

Ease of use: We have normal strength, nothing special, and find it a snap to open this gate. To do so, you have to simply press a button, squeezing on both sides of the gate, easily accomplished with only one hand. Then you gently push down on the handle and the gate simply swings open. It all happens quickly.

Verified Purchase
We bought this gate to secure the kitchen from our toddler. We chose this gate because a) we were pleased with Munchkin's Extra-Tall Extra-Wide gate that we had previously purchased for use at the top of the stairs and b) it had the lowest floor-bar of any of the pressure-mounted products I considered.

(1) The low, beveled-edge floor bar is almost impossible for an adult to stumble over and is a nice safety feature for our toddler as well.
(2) Sufficient hardware included. The gate can be precisely adjusted to different lengths on the top and bottom of each side to take into account the width of baseboards if necessary. Both gates we own by Munchkin are designed this way, but we have gates made by two other major brand names and neither have this feature and require extra hardware, material, and time in order to install properly. The Munchkin design is a real time-saver as a result.

(1) It is not very wide. We have a 42" galleyway between our kitchen and the dining room so I had to purchase an extension to make this gate fit.
(2) It is expensive compared to other gates. With the extension it was well over $100 before shipping and sales tax.
(3) There was a rust-colored, powdery residue on parts of the frame and bars that had to be cleaned off (it came off easily with water). Our suspicion was the gate was a return and/or had missed some final QC step. In the end we decided it wasn't worth the hassle of returning it, even though in our opinion it is over-priced (even compared to other Munchkin gates).
(4) Our biggest complaint: Once finally installed, the latch mechanism was pretty difficult to open compared to other safety gates that we own. There was nothing obviously defective with the latch.
