Hi, I am Melissa from Northline Express and if you are looking for a way to keep your curious toddler or your inquisitive pets safe from not only fireplaces that are in use but also hard sharp hearth corners, dangerous and dirty fireplace tools or gas starter valves then the KidCo Auto Close Hearth Gate is the perfect solution for you.
KidCo Auto Close Hearth Gate
The KidCo Auto Close Hearth Gate is a one of a kind gate system that is going to allow you to go from out of the box to assembled and functional in just minutes. The pieces incorporate not only a functional design but an easy to assemble design as well. Included in this kit are an extra wide gate section and four 24 inch extensions that are going to fit a standard 6’ hearth.
But do not worry if the size is not enough to cover the specific area that you are looking to block off. The KidCo Auto Close Hearth Gate is completely customizable. You can purchase separately 24” or 9” extension sections that are going to allow you to fit it perfectly to the area that your need to use it in.
Each section of the gate has rotating joints that will allow you to create the specific shape that you need as well. Not only can you create an angle but the angles are going to lock into place to add to the stability of the enclosure as well as maintaining the shape you need for your specific area.
The height of the KidCo Auto Close Hearth Gate itself is 29 ½” with a bar width of 2 ¼”. The width between the bars is very important to consider because you do not want your children or pets to be able to squeeze through the bars obtaining access to the very thing you are trying to protect them from.
Now let’s talk about the gate for the KidCo Auto Close Hearth Gate. The gate opening is extra wide so that you can not only fit yourself through it but also whatever else you may be carrying too. It also features a dual action gate handle. This is going to enable your gate to remain baby proof a bit longer. How many of you have purchased a “baby gate” and just weeks later have your baby figure it out? This one does have a button on top that is going to be easy to figure out. However, just pushing that button back is not going to open the gate. You will need to pull the button back as well as lift up on the gate in order for the gate to open.
The nice thing about the KidCo Auto Close Hearth Gate is that it has that dual magnet technology. So, when you walk through the gate you do not have to worry about shutting the gate. It is hands free; it is going to pull itself shut and lock every time. Now, there may be times that you need to walk back and forth through your gate with your hands full and will not be able to open your gate each time. KidCo has covered that as well. You will simply open your gate and push it all the way open. You will feel it kind of snap into its hold position. This allows the gate to stay open indefinitely until you are ready to shut it. Once you are ready to shut it just give it a little bump and it is going to close once again automatically.
The really great thing about the KidCo Auto Close Hearth Gate is that it is completely customizable and it is going to grow with you or your needs. If you move to a new home where you may not have a fireplace or your children have out grown the interest in playing with the fireplace, you can use this gate for many different purposes. You have the option of connecting the gate to itself by adding a few different extension pieces and create an enclosed play den or play area that may be used indoors or out.
