    Item Description

    The First Years Hands Free Gate is designed to help keep children confined to a safe area in your home. It has a foot pedal so you can open it when you are carrying a child or a bulky item such as a full laundry basket. Simply press the foot pedal and bump the knee plate to open the gate. A latch clicks to signify when the gate is securely closed. This First Years baby gate can swing open in either direction. While it is easy for adults to use, it cannot be opened by young children. This baby safety gate stands 30" tall and fits most standard door frames. Additional extensions are sold separately. The First Years Hands Free Gate also features pressure mounts that are designed not to mark up or damage your doorway or wall. It is made of sturdy metal and comes in an attractive white color that can work with just about any décor. This innovative baby gate would make a great baby shower gift. It can also be used for pets.

    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 4.7 out of 5★ by 102reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Awesome Gate I got this one and the Dream Baby swing gate in black. I needed 2 gates but didn't know which to get so got both and figured I'd keep one and exchange the other for another like the one I kept but I ended up keeping both. This one is truly handsfree and I have it in the doorway of my 17month old's room. He can't climb it and can't open and thats good enough for me. Its super easy to open, just push down on the pedal and pull or push the gate. It only comes in white though. Besides that, its awesome. Value gets 4 stars since I didn't really shop around. Durability, 4 stars since I haven't had it long and features, 4 stars because it doesn't have anything special. Its super easy to set up, I didn't even need the instructions but then I'm forever putting stuff together so it was just common sense for me. I would recommend this to anyone with kids or pets. Its low though so if you're really tall or have acrobatic pets, you may want a taller gate. Personally I love it and will most likely get more for other areas of the house. 08/26/2009
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Glad I bought it I really like this gate. My only complaint is that I wish the opening was wider by a few inches. I have twins and they both love it too. One just talks to it. The other has tested it thoroughly, and it is childproof. My baby boy likes to stand on the lever and try to open it, but it won't budge. 03/10/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Worth the Extra money Stay away from the Regalo easy step. We picked up the The First Years - Hands Free Gate as a replacement to flimsy easy step gate. It costs a little more and the extension is sold separate but it is secure and durable. You get what you pay for and with The First Years - Hands Free Gate you are paying for better quality and security for your child 06/28/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by I bought this gate because my brother & sister-in-law recommended it. We are ordering another one for another doorway. Love the hands-free feature. 09/16/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Just Perfect for our 4 Poms We replaced our 17 year old Fisher Price gate that finally gave out with this one. Could not be happier. Once mounted properly against the walls, the gate closes firmly. If you do not properly adjust the pressure mounts, than it will not latch. Follow directions people and you will be 100% satisfied. 04/08/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great purchase! This gate was a snap to install, and it is not a permanent fixture, if we want to remove it. We bought it for our to Lab pups and it has worked just as we had expected. We are so glad that we did get this style of gate! The other reviews really helped us make up our mind on this purchase. If you are looking for a gate, you will NOT regret getting this one! 11/28/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent Gate! I love this gate! I have only been using it for 2 days, but it has met all my expectations. I have a rowdy 1 year old boy and he tugs and pushes on the gate, and it doesn't budge. I am using the extension with it and it works perfectly. The step you step on to open it is great and very handy when you have a handful of groceries. It closes easily and feels very secure. I would highly recommend it. It certainly beats my old one that I had to step over and my son could push down. 05/25/2010
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Easy In Easy Out I have said many times in other reviews that I value the opinion of the customer over the seller. I read many reviews before I purchase items and find them very helpful. In return I write reviews for the products I purchase with my 100% opinion......I bought this gate (along with the evenflo wide gate) for my son's room. He is 4 and has outgrown the gate that he had before. I like this gate because it is very easy to use. I mean how much easier can you ask for.... you step and push/pull...... Now I was not very happy when it came to installing this product. It took way to long and was hard to do in a small space. But I am one to give up time for a short period of time if that means it will be easier on me in the long run. It is made very well and looks great on the outside of his door. However if you want to install it so that the door shuts you have to move it a little further from the inside of the door frame or the door will hit the gate. But again worth the money and is a great gate.... 100% happy with it. 03/16/2010
