For larger doorways, you can choose a gate that extends to 60 inches. It’s tall enough to keep your child from climbing out, but it won’t be too wide. You can also choose a gate that can expand to 58 inches in width. In addition to these options, this gate is PVC-free, which means that it won’t cause any problems with the paint or the baseboards.
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money, consider the Munchkin Easy Close metal gate, which usually costs around $50. While it’s not as popular as some other gates, this gate is a tension gate. The latch mechanism can be difficult to open with one hand. You may have to unbolt the gate from the wall to get it closed. However, it does come with double-sided mounting tape, which is another positive.
