What are gate extensions?
Finding the right baby safety gate for your standard sized doorways is not all that difficult with the wide range of styles on the market today. But wider doorways, angled openings and irregularly-shaped areas can pose a real challenge for parents. Baby gate extensions are often the answer, though. Many popular styles, including Evenflo baby gates and KidCo baby gates, offer separate extensions you can buy to configure a regular model to custom fit your specific space. The most important thing is to make sure that any extension you select is made to fit with the exact model you already have. Don't try to match different styles together or you may sacrifice safety. You can find straight panels to expand the width of your gate, or those that make tight turns possible. Just be sure to measure your doorway or area correctly before you shop, so you can determine the best configuration for your needs.
