Why does my Supergate Classic/Ergo/Select no longer stay tight where it is mounted?
The gate will stop holding tension if the 2 panels are slid open too widely prior to locking the handle down. When the locking handle is rotated into the locked position, the panels will bump out to create the tension needed for a tight fit. If the gate has been set into the space a little too tightly, there is nowhere for that tension to go and it will result in the plastic handle/rear slide to crack or wear out. This can cause the gate to not hold pressure or could cause the handle or rear slide to completely break altogether. It is best to set the gate into the space with the rubber bumpers lightly brushing the surface and then rotate the handle down to the first notch.
If the rear slide or plastic has been worn, replacement pieces can be ordered directly on the North States website by searching with the model number of your gate.
How do I get the hardware out from between the panels of my Universal Petgate?
The best way to remove the hardware components that were packed between the panels is to lay the gate on a flat surface, such as the floor. Extend the top panel out as much as you can. You may need to use your fingers through the holes to move the hardware into a position that will allow you to extend the top panel. The plastic webbing is somewhat flexible permitting you to either lift on the top webbing or push down on the lower webbing to create somewhat of an “air pocket”, allowing the pieces to slide towards the frame of the gate. Once there, you can slide them out.
My pressure-mounted metal gate came out of the package looking bent and has a gap where the latch should be. What do I do?
When you unpack this gate, you may notice that it is not square. This is normal and the gate is not damaged. It is manufactured at a pre-set angle so that when it is installed properly in an opening, it will maintain the correct amount of tension. This tension prevents the gate from being dislodged from the opening under normal use. Please read and follow the instruction manual carefully.
What is the distance between the bars of my gate?
The distance between the bars of most of our pressure-mounted metal gates is 2 ¼ inches.
Can I add more extensions to my pressure-mounted metal gate?
Not all of our gates have the option to increase its width with extensions. If your gate has additional extensions available, they will be found in our Pet Gate Extensions section of our website. Because extensions are not universal but are exclusive to the gate, the easiest way to find them is to search with the 4-digit model number of the gate. If the gate has additional extensions available for purchase, they will show in the results. Otherwise, the product page of your specific gate will also offer any available extensions that can be purchased separately.
Do I need to use the mounting cups that are included in the hardware package?
The mounting cups should be used to ensure the safety and security of the gate.
Can I get replacement parts for my gate?
Most components will be included in a prepackaged hardware set and may not be sold separately. Any Pet Gate Replacement Parts that are offered can be ordered directly on our website by using the search feature to search with the 4-digit model number (or name) of the product. All available replacement parts will show in the results. If you do not see the component that you are looking for, that means it is not something available for ordering or may be for a discontinued gate.
Can I use my pressure-mounted gate at the top of my stairs?
Unless it states specifically that it is intended to be used at the top of a stairway, we do not recommend the use of our pressure-mounted gates at the top of the stairs. Only hardware-mounted gates that are permanently installed into a wooden stud/surface are safe to use at the top of a stairway. With enough force, a pressure-mounted gate may become dislodged and no longer hold tension, leading to falls, injury, or damage. You can view all of our Top of Stairs Pet Gates on our website.
What is the width of the door on my pressure-mounted gate?
The width of the swinging door on most of our pressure-mounted metal gates is 22 inches.
