Baby Gate for the Stairs: Take Two!

It is finally time to put up the baby gate as Jack is now speedily crawling throughout our house.

Inspecting the new thing coming into the house!
It was very easy to install and uses tension rather than putting holes in the walls. It went up very quickly and had all the features we were looking for. You would think a simple gate would be all we needed.

But because of our extra wide stairs and jump-capable pets we were hoping to find an extra-tall extra-wide one. After our first purchase being unsuitable for our stairs (but great for our deck stairs!) we did some more research and measuring this time around.

We found this metal gate at Toys R Us and it is perfect! Keeps the Jackalope in and the pets out of the entry way. 

He loved looking down the stairs...

And using it as a tool to stand!

One of the best features this gate has is its swinging door. It opens with one hand easily, and swings in both directions. It also automatically shuts and locks behind you!
