KidCo Safety Gates Review-Giveaway!

I absolutely love working with Kidco as I find they are truly a great company for moms/dads out there. I previously  worked with them on the Go-Pod (which I have to admit was one of my most favorite reviews) and today, I am working with them to tell you all about their new Kidco Safety Gates!

If you have young children, you know that baby-proofing must be done! I have two kids now but even when I had one, the number one thing I did once Hayley started crawling, was baby-proofing the heck out of the house. However, the most important baby-proofing items, was putting in good safety gates. I do recall one experience where I put in Brand “X” Safety Gate, only for it to break three days later, and I had an escape’ trying to climb the stairs. You all know how important  good safety gates are if you have kids. If you don’t have safety gates, you will be  constantly worrying about your little one getting out and possibly getting injured. Trust me- it is just a fact of life!

Today, I have to tell all my readers about the truly wonderful Kidco Safety Gates that are on the market. Whether you are looking for an area for your child to stay confined to or whether you want your child away from the fireplace, KidCo has it all. Some of their fantastic KidCo Safety Gates include pressure mounted gates, hardware mounted gates, extra wide and irregular shaped areas, fireplaces and wood-burning stoves, play areas, extensions, and installation aids for the gates.

While we had a gate in practically every area of the house, I needed to put a gate in my daughter’s bedroom. Call me mean but that child would escape fifty million times a night if I had not put the gate on. I told Hayley that while we were putting the gate up, she still can call out for us at any time and we would come right in. Since we put this gate up, we has zero problems with her escaping and she sleeps a blissful 12 hours. We decided to review the Pinnacle Gateway G180, which falls under the pressure mounted gates.

The Pinnacle Gateway G180 fits the dimensions of my daughters room perfectly. Installation was a cinch and we were soon on our way to having a sturdy gate at her doorway. The Pinnacle Gateway is the only hands free, auto close, pressure mounted gate on the market! That is right, once you leave the room, the gate closes by itself! I love this feature as I sometimes end up closing gates and have to rush right back in. With the Pinnacle Gateway, I let the gate do the work.

Architecturally inspired to fit any home decor, the Pinnacle has all the popular attributes of the Gateway series including easy installation with no tools involved, non-toxic, white finished tubular steel, and a U-shaped frame with two-way door. Best of all, you simply open this gate with the push of your foot enabling easy doorway use. I love this because I can carry Zane at the same time, as opening the door to welcome Hayley to the new day!

On the gate, there is a locking indicator with green meaning the gate is open and ready for use, and red meaning the gate is locked and secure.  There is also a unique handle design that uses the Magnet-Lock Technology that automatically draws the door closes and locks it every time!

The simple way it works is I step on the foot pedal. I then hear a click and the locking indicator turns to green. The door will remain in position, unlocked and waits to be opened from either direction. I then push open with my knees and walk through. Then the magnets closes the door instantly beyond you and you will hear a click. At this point, the locking indicator will turn red, showing that the door is locked and secure.

As I mentioned above, this gate is truly fantastic for my needs. With Zane all over me and constantly wanting to be picked up, I can use this gate to get Hayley without ever using my hands. How cool is that! Conversely, I can leave both kids in there while I run downstairs, knowing that there is no way that they could possibly escape. This gate also is truly indestructible and even with Zane constantly trying to pound on the gate, it does not budge. The Pinnacle Gateway G180, is perfect for both of my kids!

    I have the mounted retractable gate and love it. I’d like the pressure mounted gateway to take with us to the grandparents houses.

  2. Laura Andry says

    We are getting ready to move to a new house that has banisters for the stairway so my old safety gates will not work. I checked out the Kidco website and would love to get my hands on the Angle Mount Wood Safeway ® G2300. The pretty wood will blend in with the banister and it looks like it would be a very safe gate for my toddler and baby!

  3. says

    Angle mount baby gate. We had these gates professionally installed in our last home and I loved them because they fit with our decor and were very sturdy. I wasn’t afraid of my daughter shaking them or anything. Also, they were one of the reasons we finally sold our house!

  4. Shannon R says

    I’d like the Angle Mount Safeway ® G2101 to keep my 1 year old out of trouble

  5. Stephanie says

    Would LOVE the Angle Mount Safeway G2101 for our steps in our new townhome!

  6. maria says

    Such an awesome product, Melissa…I remember with my brother, we needed gates everywhere. He was a little terror! :)
    I like the custom fit auto close
    I hope you all are having a wonderful day!!
    Lots of love!

  7. Shari says

    We could use another hardware mount for the top of the steps! We bought one already and have another staircase to protect!



  9. Pauline Milner says

    I like the Auto Close Gateway G1100.

    Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity. ~Pauline

  10. says

    Extra Tall & Wide Auto Close Gateway ® G1201

    I’d like to keep the kids from running between the kitchen and the dining room!

  11. Carrie Phelps says

    I would LOVE the EXTRA TALL & WIDE AUTO CLOSE GATEWAY ® G1201 for my granddaughter that will be walking soon!

  12. Kim Barrett says

    “The Pinnacle Gateway® is the only hands free, auto-close, pressure mounted gate on the market!” I LOVE that!

  13. Cathie says

    Several of these gate styles would be incredibly helpful. Especially the G1201 or the G3100. If I could choose, and only choose one, I suppose I would have to narrow it down to the G1201 (or the G1101, which is just a different color).

  14. Rachel S says

    I would love any of them!! But my fave would have to be the “Custom Fit Auto Close Configuregate G3000″!! Amazing!

  15. Ashley C says

    I would pick the extra tall & wide auto close gate in white


  16. Mikaela says

    I like the CUSTOM FIT AUTO CLOSE CONFIGUREGATE ® G3000, it would be perfect for my kitchen opening.

  17. nicole orcutt says

    I would like the Custom Fit Auto Close Configuregate 3000 with a crawling 1 year old around

  18. Carmen Vickery says

    These gates sounds completely amazing! I’ve never had a Kidco gate but with my 3rd baby on the way and a very active toddler already, I would love to have the extra wide and tall auto wide gate G1200. However, all of the gates loos exceptional to entrust with the safety of my children. Thanks so much for the great review and this awesome opportunity!

  19. nikki m says

    We have a strange configuration, so the CUSTOM FIT AUTO CLOSE CONFIGUREGATE ® G3000 should work

  20. Jennifer Holovack says

    Any of the Kidco play areas would be fantastic. I watch my sisters 10 mos old and my 7 mos old every day so a place for them to play is needed!

  21. Andrea Amy says

    I like CUSTOM FIT AUTO CLOSE CONFIGUREGATE ® G3000. I HAD something similar but its broken now, and we have it taped up to keep the kids from running upstairs (although the tape doesn’t hold well and the kids can normally tear the gate part down and take off anyways now). this would be very nice to win :)

  22. Andrea Amy says

    I would love to enter 3 or more giveaways your blog for the extra entry into the contest, but you don’t have that many open to Canada :(

  23. Melissa Clarke says

    I would love to have the Extra Tall & Wide Auto Close Gateway ® G1201 Pressure Mounted Gate :)

  24. Whitney Lindeman says

    The Pinnacle would probably be my favorite, too – we are in desperate need of a new gate for our puppy, who can scale (easily) the one we have now!

  25. Christina Hochstrasser says

    Hi, for my purposes I think the Gateway G1000 would work best. I’d like to block off our kitchen doorway area since our kitchen is small and it can be quite difficult to cook and keep my baby out of the many adventurous things he can find. Thanks!

  26. Jane Squires says

    I like several of them. I want the custom fit auto close configure gate because of my arthritis

  27. Jill Myrick says

    I would love to have the Angle Mounted Wood Safeway Gate G2301.


  28. Bernadette says
