Installing a retractable baby gate is crucial when your baby starts crawling. The absence of the gate will cause your baby in danger. The safety gates are intended for six months old babies or when they start to crawl to two years age toddlers. Generally, when babies reach the age of two, the safety gate is no longer necessary as, by the time, the babies will have already been able to open or climb the gate.

Baby gates fall into two basic categories. The first is the one mounted on the walls using hardware (bolts). This type is ideal for the top of the stairway as the gate can prevent your kid to fall off.  The second one is pressure-mounted gates. As the name implies, the gates are simply presses on walls. Unlike the first type that aims to prevent kids from climbing the stairs, this second type can only separate areas.
