If you have an extra tall baby or if you are a family of naturally tall people and expecting a naturally tall baby, you might want to consider the Regalo Easy Step Extra Tall Walk Thru Gate as an option for your baby gate for your home.
It is built 41 inches high, taller than the average baby gate that reaches up to about 36 inches. You can be assured that there is a limited possibility of your toddler going over the gate to get to the other side with the height of this baby gate.
The height is matched by a width that can accommodate 40-inch-wide doorways or walkways or any other variety of openings. Additional extension kits are readily available should you need to mount it in places that are wider than 40 inches.
To match its heavy duty height is its heavy duty make. It is made in all steel which ensures that even larger and more active babies are not able to topple it down and damage it easily.
The steel material gives you all of the sturdiness and durability that you need for the times when you can’t be near enough to your child to keep him out of harm’s way.
It is 100% steel, 100% PVC free and is certified and approved by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association as well as the American Society for Testing and Materials.
The 100% steel composition of this baby gate is one of the features that puts it above the rest of other brands when it comes to durability and strength.
The pressure mounting mechanism that the Regalo Easy Step Extra Tall Walk Thru Gate employs makes sure that it is fairly easy to install for just about every parent that has bought it.
If you want extra security for your child in places such as stairways, it comes with four wall cups that keep the contraption in place more securely and thus more reliably than if rely on pressure alone, especially if you have a curious child who likes to tug on or attempt to climb on the railings. This gate will not break and it will not budge.
Just as any reasonable baby gate would be, this one is made with a convenient walk-through design that allows you to simply walk through and let its safety locking features work its magic in keeping it closed at all desired times.
What’s great is that this all happens with the use of just one hand. You could be carrying your baby, a bag of groceries or a sack of tools, and you will have no trouble going through this gate since it will not demand much of your precious hand power.
Despite its heavy duty steel frame, you will find that the Regalo Easy Step Extra Tall Walk Thru Gate is no pain at all when it comes to portability.
It is actually built to be folded flat so that you can easily transport it in your car, transfer it between rooms, or bring it with you on trips without even so much as a back strain. It is arguably the best combination of durability, size, and portability locked into one product.
If you intend to buy this product while you are still heavily pregnant or if you plan on being pregnant again while it is still installed, you may find it hard to walk through the gate which could be quite narrow for someone with a bulging belly. This includes people who are just on the larger than average size.
This may not be ideal for people with expanding families and who plan on using the gate in between babies, or for people who are naturally bigger or families with a naturally bigger build. You may also find that the edges of the gate are a bit blunted so if you scrape past it, it may do some damage.
At 41 inches, the Regalo Easy Step Extra Tall Walk Thru Gate is easily one of the tallest ready-made baby gates in the market. So if you have an active little climber, this gate might be the perfect one for you.
Just try to make considerations and try it out first if the gate opening is fit for you and the other members of your household since it has had dimension issues with a few users.
