There are mainly two types of safety gates:
- Pressure-mounted gates: These gates can be applied by simply pressing them against the walls. They should only be placed at low risk areas, for example, between two rooms or between your child’s room and balcony. Before opting for these gates, just ensure that pressure mounted gates should only be used where falling isn't a hazard. One of the best-selling examples of this kind of safety gates is Babyhood Eze Safe T Door Gate.
- Hardware-mounted gate: These safety gates are bolted to the edges inside the walls of your home. They are perfect for the places from where there's a chance of your child falling down, for example, top of the staircase (indoors or outdoors). Setting up a hardware mounted gate usually takes longer time than pressure-mounted gates.
