Hello and can you help?

Hi, new member. I’m wondering if anyone can recommend a childproof safety gate for my 3 year old grandson with Aspergers. He can get out both gates he has at home. Is there something designed for older children. Thanks 😊

Hopefully someone will chime in with ideas about a baby gate. I did find a device called a flip lock helpful. You can mount it very high up on the door frame to prevent little ones leaving the house unexpectedly. We also used bells on doors to alert us. Good luck!

I know some people use hotel door locks at the top of the door.

Thanks but we need his room to be a safe space to be when dealing with housework etc also running riot around the house at night as doesn’t sleep. So Gate is to keep him in safely while keeping an eye on him.

Okay just an idea, otherwise you up a spy thing in the door. Or cut the door in half. I know their are quite a few YouTube about keeping kidoes with autism safe and the adaptations people have made.

Have you tried animal gates.
