Curved Juvenile Gate

Bronze
2008

The Safety 1st Curve Gate creates 8-12 inches of extra landing space to provide a space for solid footing at the top or bottom of stairs. The Curve Gate can be criitcal at the bottom of a staircase, where the parent traditionally reaches down from the second step to open the gate. This forces the parent -- often holding a child -- to lean dangerously over the locked gate. The Curve Gate design allows parents to step off the stairs completely in order to safely operate the gate. The curved design also acts something like a panoramic or bay window, bringing parent closer to child. For example, a child standing behind this gate in the kitchen doorway can now step into the room to watch the parent prepare dinner.
