Free Standing Pet Gate or Wall Mounted Child Gate With Door Can Be Extra Wide Gates Using Extensions

by Barbara 11. July 2012 14:26

Question about the Cardinal Gates Home Safety VersaGate

Q: "I need a gate for a extra wide doorway. I have both dogs and small children. Yet I would like to be able to open a door in the gate rather than step over it. Which gate or gates do you recommend? My dogs are small ones. Thanks. Sheri."

Answer: The Versagate VG-65 won the Child Safety House Calls Pediatricians Childproofing Product Award 2010 for its modular system, quality metal construction and its 24 inch door. Choose from white steel, light oak stained beechwood with metal gate frame or black metal.The VersaGate VG-65 Basic Gate System Features:

  • Door Section with 24 inch gate: 40 inches total width
  • Gate Extensions: 2, each 20 inches wide.
  • Two rubber-coated, stabilizing feet to increase stability and prevent scratching floors. Use two for the wide door section and one for each gate extension. Each foot is 6 inches in diameter and one inch high. The bottom is textured to them less likely to skid on a slick floor surface.
  • For maximum stability, the feet can be mounted to the floor.
  • Gate Height: 30.5 Inches.
  • Bar Spacing: 2.25 Inches.
  • Gate and frame are both made from strong, sturdy steel except in the beechwood gate which is wood with a metal frame.
  • Door Operation: Push red safety button and lift handle 90 degrees upwards. Pull gate to open. Close gate and lower handle back to original postion. Gate will click when locked.
  • Your Cardinal Gate is warranted to be free of manufacturing defects for a period of one year from the date of purchase when used in homes, and according to manufacturers instructions. When used commercially, such as day care centers, the warranty is 90 days.
  • All Cardinal Gates are JPMA certified & adhere to guidelines as set forth by the JPMA & the Consumer Products Safety Commission.

The VersaGate VG-65 expands to a maximum of 77.25 inches in width. For each additional 1.25 feet needed (16 inches), add one VG-20 extension.(not included). Or choose the VG-10 (not included) or the VG-40 inch extensions (not included).

For additional stability, attach to side walls for a very stable child gate or dog gate. More effective wall-mounting hardware (vertical hole pattern) means the gate can be removed from the wall without removing the screws. Added feet means the Versagate can be installed in a straight line.  Baseboard shims plus easier mounting to stabilizing feet makes this a great pet gate or child gate for almost any situation.

This has been one of our more popular gates.

Thank you for your questions. If you have more questions, please contact us at sales@safehomeproducts.com or phone us.

Sincerely,

Barbara

 

Childproofing A Home Against the Biggest Home Risks to Children

by Barbara 8. July 2012 06:00

Question about the most common dangers to children in and around homes.

Q: "We have a 6 month old baby, our first. Where should we begin to childproof our home? What are the biggest risks to a toddler or younger child? Thanks. Sue."

Answer: According to the USA Today, July 5, 2012 report, the Consumer Protection Product Safety Commission lists drowning, poisoning and tipping furniture as most common dangers. You may recall the baby crib recall. The cribs our parents used for us and we used for our children and grandchildren can no longer be sold. Remember the double release locks you pushed with your foot and the side dropped?  The Commission received reports and does research to determine which products are safe.

Drowning, poisoning and tipping furniture are considered the most common risks to young children. Cordless window blinds are recommended to reduce risks of strangulation.

The COSC recommends that whatever safety devices you buy for do-it-yourself installation or have installed by handymen or professional childproofers meet voluntary industry standards or are recommended by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association.

Common sense tells you that poisons, medications, dishwasher detergent, etc. must be stored in secure places whether that place is a cupboard or a closet.

Here are a few suggestions based upon our customers' purchases:

These are childproofing products that are easily installed and may save the life of your child or grandchild or a visiting child.

Thank you for your questions.

Sincerely,

Barbara
