Gate Extensions Baby safety gates are a parenting essential; they help to create barriers from danger and to establish safe areas for your baby to play, crawl and walk. Use them to contain children and keep them safe and protected from the many hazards posed by stairways, doorways, appliances, fireplaces or anything else that might present danger. When your child is safely contained in a gated play area you can enjoy peace of mind as you go about your daily activities. Most modern safety gates are customizable to fit extra wide, extra tall or irregular openings; use a baby gate extension to create the ideal configuration. A gate extension kit typically contains everything you'll need to modify an existing safety gate; check to make sure it is compatible with the make and model of safety gate system you already have or plan to buy. Use a 6–inch extension, a 3–inch extension or a larger extension to create the perfect configuration for your home.
