For some baby gates are a savior, but for others they can be more of a hazard or headache after they're installed. The Kiddy Guard rolls back up on itself when it's open, making sure you'll never whack your shins again! This roll up gate doesn't take up as much space in your hallways since it rolls up tight when not in use. It can hold up to 220lbs of pressure, so there's no worries about your tiny tots pushing their way through and getting tangled.
The Kiddy Guard retails for $119.95 and although it's a bit higher in price than more traditional methods, it could be a good alternative option if a standard gate doesn't work in your home. You can of course purchase different installment brackets if you need to attach one side to stairs, walls or thick baseboards.
