GMI Keepsafe Expansion Gate Review

The overall expansion limit is 108 wide. This means it will block an opening that is nine feet wide one of the largest in the industry. Its perfect for the open floor plan design of my home.

The height of this product is perfect for babies and toddlers. Standing at a total of 30 tall, the GMI Keepsafe Expansion Gate keeps my son from reaching over the top of the gate to grab items on the other side, and it keeps him from crawling over the top. Even my dogs cannot jump over.

The makers of this gate really got it right with regard to safety. It has no plastic covers which eliminates choking hazards, and a design that does not allow pinch points. My son is notorious for pulling up to stand while holding on to this gate, and he has never been pinched while doing so.

Installation, right out of the box, was very simple and only took a few minutes from start to finish. It attaches to the wall on both sides using the included hardware. The sturdy design has four attachment points which means that it won't come off the wall even with dogs pushing it and kids pulling on it.

One of the best features for my family is the hinged design. This feature allows me to completely move the gate forward and away from the latch, giving me a full range of motion. It actually swings 180 degrees so there is no problem moving large items throughout my house and through the gate.

There are times when I want to remove the gate for a dinner party or other gathering in my home. The easy removal system allows me to do that without a problem. Storing this product is a breeze since it fully closes to a very small 25 .

Unlike many other gates of similar size, the GMI Keepsafe Expansion Gate has a center support leg that is an additional amount of support when the gate is fully extended.

The single-handed latching and unlatching system is so easy to use for my husband and me, but my son cannot figure it out. This is a plus because I don't want him to be able to open it and escape. I love this!

Cons:

Although I love the overall design and functionality of this product, I'm not in love with the way it looks. I have very traditional motifs and design elements in my home. This accordion-style gate looks a little too modern for my taste. It is light wood which does not fit with my personal style, but this isn't a deal breaker for me. Because it keeps my pets and child in, I would still buy it again.

The first time we used this gate, we noticed it was very stiff and hard to maneuver. However, after using it for a couple of weeks, the hinges and accordion feature began to loosen a bit and become much more manageable. I think the problem was that it was tightened a lot during the manufacturing process. Now that it has been used for quite some time there are no issues at all.
