Baby Safe Tension Pressure Gates

Pressure gates are useful in many applications but it is important to use QUALITY pressure gates that are stable, easy to use and have a sturdy locking mechanism. Pressure gates made by Summer Infant, DreamBaby and Munchkin are NOT pressure gates that we use or recommend. We also do not recommend any pressure gates that do not open in both directions or do not have a walk through doorway. Stepping over a safety gate poses a tripping and falling hazard.

Pressure mounted gates should NEVER be used at the top of stairs. We also do not recommend pressure gates for high traffic location as they are often knocked out of alignment and then not lock and latch properly. Although most people think pressure gates do less damage to their walls than a mounted gate, a properly “mounted” gate will be easier to use and do far less damage to your walls. If we do install a pressure gate, Baby Safe Homes has custom solution which will make the installation more sturdy and reduce drywall damage.

In situations where pressure gates are appropriate, we have a selection of safety gates tailored for your needs. These photos are not ALL areas where pressure gates can be utilized, but some examples.

Below are some gate that are NOT used appropriately. A pressure mounted gate should NEVER be used at the top of stairs regardless of what the manufacturer claims. They offer a false sense of security and can cause injury to you or your child.

Our Testimonials

Many people put-off baby proofing because they do not have the time- there is absolutely no excuse for that. I have taken care of patients who have their babies fall down stairs, choke on door stoppers, and pull down furniture onto themselves. This can be prevented. And the service is very affordable- the only additional cost versus doing it yopurself is the labor cost.Thank you to Baby Safe Homes for providing an excellent service to me and my patients.

Hi all. I just wanted to let you know that we recently used Baby Safe Homes to childproof our house. More than a few friends referred us to this company and I can’t speak highly enough it. They came to our house for a consultation, made recommendations, and did immediate installation. He was very honest and didn’t pressure us to buy or install anything we didn’t feel we needed to. If you have an infant ready to crawl (as we do) I’d highly recommend Baby Safe Homes.

Thank you very much for making my house a safer place for my twin girls. You did a wonderful job! Everything works great, and I’m starting to appreciate all the devices even more as the girls get better at getting into things. I will certainly recommend Baby Safe Homes to all of my friends with kids and my patients.

Baby Safe Homes was an absolute pleasure to work with. I felt so overwhelmed by the process of babyproofing I procrastinated until my 8 month old was on the go. Within a few short days of my initial call Baby Safe Homes came out, gave me the guidance I needed, and proofed my entire house with top of the line products all within a 2 1/2 hour period. I can actually get more done now without constantly stopping to chase my son!

Thank you for helping us babyproof our new home. I loved that you gave us all the options and didn’t push anything on us and allowed us to pick what we felt was necessary. Also, I couldn’t believe how quick everything was finished. Within a few days of speaking with you, you came out and installed everything in just 2 hours! Our stair gates look and work great! I wish I had heard of you before and I will definitely recommend you to all of my family and friends. Thanks again.
