Title: Choosing a Baby Safety Gate


1
Choosing a Baby Safety Gate
2
  • Baby safety gates prevent accidents from
    happening to babies and small children.
  • The baby safety gates prevent access to areas
    that are off limits to babies and young children.
  • The gates range in size as far as width but the
    height is usually about 25-30 inches tall.

3
  • This should be installed long before the baby
    becomes mobile in order to best prevent injuries
    by making sure adults are accustomed to their
    regular use.
  • There are many types of safety gates available
    and most are geared for different situations and
    needs.

4
  • Easy to Install Pressure Mounted Baby Safety
    Gates
  • Pressure mounted gates are the easiest gates to
    install because they are wedged between walls and
    dont require tools or hardware to be installed.
    However these gates should never be used at the
    top of stairs because a childs weight could
    cause the gate to topple.

5
  • Hardware Mounted Baby Safety Gates
  • Hardware mounted gates are attached with screws
    to walls and banisters. They open and shut like
    traditional doors and are most convenient for
    areas that are heavily trafficked.

6
  • Hardware Mounted Walk Through Baby Safety Gates
  • These gates are similar to the previous gates but
    a section of the gate is easily opened while the
    rest of the gate is stationary.

7
  • Pressure Mounted Walk Through Baby Safety Gates
  • Pressure mounted walk through gates operate in
    much of the same way as hardware mounted walk
    through gates.

8
  • Using Baby Safety Gates Safely
  • Select a JPMA or ASTM approved baby safety gates.
  • Read the manufacturers instructions in order to
    ensure the gate is installed properly.
  • Test the gates locking mechanism to be sure it
    works properly.

9
  • Always close the safety gate even when your baby
    is sleeping. Developing this habit for safety
    reasons ensures you never forget to do it.
  • Use a mounting kit unless you are mounting the
    gate to a completely flat surface.
  • Install the baby safety gate before the baby is
    mobile in order to get into closing the gate
    before it is needed.
  • Consider how long the gate will need to be used
    and pick a gate that can last for that amount of
    time under constant use.

10
  • Remove the safety gate according to
    manufacturers instructions at the recommended
    age. Having a safety gate installed after a child
    can climb it provides opportunities for
    accidents.
  • Never install a pressure mounted safety gate at
    the top of stairs.

11
  • Never use older style baby safety gates or baby
    safety gate hand me downs.
  • Dont climb over baby safety gates. Babies will
    see this behavior and imitate it.
  • Never use pet gates that have big mesh openings
    that can be easily climbed.
  • Baby safety gates are not substitute baby
    sitters. Never leave your child unattended.
