34 Baby Proofing Gates

Sorry, don't have one of those. :-) But I do have one I've
been able to live with. I don't know the name but I'll try to
describe it. We actually bought it when we had a dog (pre-kids era).

It's a white gate with plastic cris-cross mesh with openings about
2 sq.in. on a diagonal. It stays in place very nicely with tension
bars at the top and bottom. You have to turn them to tighten against
your door jam. It doesn't take much time to tighten or loosen.

It's also short enough that I can step over it and I'm 5'4". The
kids were unable to climb it due to the small openings.

Crude picture alert!
