We have a two-storey home and as soon as our son became mobile, we quickly discovered the need for baby gates. And, along with that went the price of baby gates. Why so expensive!? We found the cheaper plastic, pressure-mounted ones insufficient for most areas and easy to pull down for stronger babies! We also had trouble finding one wide enough for one of our staircases. Enter the Evenflow Top of Stairs Plus gate at Amazon for more than 30% off at just $39.98.
The Evenflo Top of Stairs Plus Gate is all wood and hardware mounted. The gate swings open in both directions for easy pass through in any area of your home. It also includes a swing control to prevent the gate from swinging over the stairs when installed at the top.
The gate is 32" tall and expands from 30" to 48" wide which should accommodate most, if not all, areas in your home.
It's safe and sturdy an very well reviewed. It sells for at least $60 elsewhere – $70 at Toys R Us – so this is a solid deal if you're in need. Also consider it for a baby shower gift. New parents may not need it immediately but will appreciate it as soon as that little one starts cruising!
As it's over $25, Amazon will ship the gate to you for free.
