Twinkle toes no longer remain tucked in the crib. They want to travel in all the possible ways. They are restless and curious about all that seems new. Their freedom for movement sometimes gets parents worrying about their safety. After all, you give your best of vigilance, but even a moment of negligence can cause the damage. At such times, baby gates prove to be of good help. They are designed to protect him form accidents. Besides, they also prevent him from entering certain areas of the house. They are of two types, viz., the hardware mounted and the pressure mounted. The hardware mounted gate is designed to mount it directly with the help of brackets, often with a door walk through. Pressure mounted ones work on two parts ― a spring or any other mechanism that accentuates tension and presses the two parts against the wall.

These safety gates are easy to install and they work well, but they can also be moved with weight. They are a good choice for people who do not want to filter the walls with holes and prefer movable and temporary placement of the baby gate. Their width can be adjusted with the use of a bar or knob, that creates strong pressure to fix them in the desired place. They are easy to install, light in weight to travel with, and can be easily packed. They are best used at level floors or at the bottom of the stairs. It is not advisable to use them at the top of stairs, as there is a risk of them slipping out of place due to shaking and pressure, and hence resulting into an accident.
