The one-touch release handle is designed to allow you to pass through even while carrying items. This gate is ideal if you don’t want your baby wandering around parts of the house where it can make a mess or injure itself. The small door on the gate is large enough for a cat, rabbit or smaller animal to pass through. Actually sometimes I want to call this a pet gate with cat door or pet gate for cats, because that what it really looks like in person. With 4 inch and 6 inch extension kits, the gate is able to fit openings from 29 to 44 inches. 10 minute diy baby pet gate, diy, fences, painted furniture, woodworking projects

I found some mesh pet gates that I like way more than slatted baby gates, but if there's a safety issue, of course I wouldn't use them. Just wondering if anyone has used them or if anyone is aware of an information source with a comparison...LOVE!! barn door baby gate or pet gate!! Our pets and baby have outgrown the Dutch door we made at our house, but now it serves as a noise block from the AC/heater, without blocking to much air for the return. We made ours from a core door cut in 1/2 with a shelf on top. I like this one better.Whichever style you prefer, you should know that a couple of materials are most popular for baby gates and these materials are metal and wood.
