A one-hand wonder! The Toddleroo by North States® Portico Arch Gate keeps your child safe and secure with one simple push shut. The exclusive matte bronze finish is designed for exceptional richness, durability and depth of color. The arch on the gate stylishly blends with any home décor while its solidly constructed from the highest-quality materials to withstand rigorous day in, day out use. The gate is easily shut with one hand, for all those times you have to pass through with a baby on the hip. It also swings open both ways for added convenience 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.

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.
Are there additional extensions available to make my Portico Arch Gate Wider?
Yes. An optional 5-Bar Extension is available (sold separately). This extension adds 13.5″ to the width of the gate. It is available under model number 4900.
