How to Install an Evenflo Gate

Save

Evenflo baby gates provide a level of protection to mobile babies and toddlers. Baby gates are not a substitute for supervision, but Evenflo gates can keep your child corralled in a safe room within eyesight while you complete necessary chores. Evenflo pressure-mounted gates are easy to install and use, but do not place them at the top of stairs because enough pressure can jar them loose.

Measure the opening where you want to place the Evenflo gate. An Evenflo pressure-mounted gate will work for an opening between 26 and 42 inches wide.

Pull the cross bar up on the Evenflo gate so that the small metal sizing bar is movable.

Place the metal sizing bar into the slot that matches the measurement of your opening. If your opening is not a full inch, round up to the next full inch and place the sizing bar in this slot.

Set the Evenflo gate in the opening with the cross bar facing away from where your child will be. Make sure the pressure points are above your baseboards.

Press down on the crossbar until the metal U-shaped clamp catches the bar.

Test the gate by gently pushing and pulling on it to insure it stays in place.
