Walking through the gate is easier than 1, 2, 3 with the Toddleroo by North States® Arched Auto-Close Gate with Easy-Step. With its low threshold, arched door (measures 18 inches wide), and soft white finish, you get function and style bundled up in one incredible design. The gate is easily shut with one hand, for all those times you have to pass through with a baby on the hip. For added convenience, the gate has a door stopper which keeps the gate swinging in only one direction; gate will also swing both ways when door stopper is not in use, and offers a triple locking system for peace of mind. To keep the gate open for multiple pass through, simply use the hold-open feature to prevent the gate from closing. The gate pressure mounts easily by using tension knobs to secure the gate in place. Ideal for a variety of room openings or hardware mount for use at the top of the stairs measuring 28.75 to 38.25 inches wide with two extensions included and is 30 inches high.
Need to make the gate wider? The Arched Auto-Close Gate with Easy-Step has two additional extensions (sold separately) that will expand the gate up to 63.38 inches wide. The 7.25 inch extension is available under product number 4918, and the 10.75 inch extension is available under product number 4919.
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 will 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 Triple Locking System?
When installed properly, there are three steps required to open the gate from the locked position.
1. Rotate the plastic locking handle (the release button/tab will be on the underside of the handle, facing the ground, when it is unlocked).
2. Retract the release button/tab on the underside.
3. Lift on the door and open.
Retracting the release button in step 2 is what causes the door to clear the spring-loaded tab opposite of the latch. The release button is only used when opening the door of the gate. (When the latch is in the locked position, the release button will be facing out from the gate.)
If you are retracting the release button and the door will not open when lifted, you have the gate installed too tightly and you will need to loosen the tension knobs.
If you can lift on the door and it opens without having to retract the release button, you have it installed improperly and it will need to be tightened more at the tension knobs.
