Baby gates help keep children out of harm’s way and give parents peace of mind, but many gates turn out to be a tripping hazard for adults. To remedy this predicament, baby gear company, Munchkin, Inc., maker of the Diaper Pail and the award winning Lulla-vibe mattress pad, is releasing a new type of childproof gate. “The Safe Step Gate with TripGuard was developed specifically with the safety of parents and children in mind,” says Ali Bouda, brand manager. “Its unique design and patent pending technology not only safeguards the home against unwanted dangers, but the floor bar is 50 percent lower than standard gates, helping to minimize trip hazards.”
The gate employs a contemporary design with a push-to-lock mechanism and dual depressor handle. It comes equipped with a double locking system on the handle that makes it easy for adults to open and close the gate with one hand. “An optional third locking mechanism at the gate base lets you choose which way the gate opens, making it that much safer,” Bouda adds. The Safe Step Gate accommodates extra wide, as well as standard doorways. The suggested retail price is $79.99, and retailers are asked to call Munchkin directly for wholesale pricing information.
