If you’re welcoming a baby to your home, the plan of baby proofing your home must already be forming in the back of your head. With the plan of baby proofing, comes the dilemma of which baby gate to buy.
With years of experience in baby safety, this baby gate doesn’t fall short of the reputation of its company, North States. Handling every baby gate problem that other baby gates show time and again, all the while saving itself from being tagged as a hardware-mounted baby gate, the North States Supergate is perhaps the best and the most well-rounded baby gate out there.
Let’s start from its design. With two available colors, black and bronze, this device is sure to fit in any needed area of your house, while completely looking like a part of it, or even further beautifying your home. The finish is matte, so it feels good to the touch also.
One of the best reasons to purchase the North States Supergate is that it fits anywhere, and in most commonly seen passages and doorways of your home. This means that you can buy the Supergate without giving a second thought as to if it would fit or not. Number wise, the sizes it fits lie between 38.3” inches to 72”, which also coincides with the sizes of most doorways or passageways.
Out of the dozens of baby gates available across baby stores, the North States Supergate Deluxe, has already satisfied millions of parents worldwide.

The North States Supergate is a pressure-mounted baby gate, so you can buy it, and fix it where you want it, without any need of tools or help. It is as easy to remove as easy it is to affix, so removing is not a headache either. Where it can be argued that hardware-mounted gates are sturdier, and pressure mounted gates tend to fall off, this particular baby gate trumps those notions and perfectly holds almost any amount of pressure.
Where its pressure mount provides an advantage, it is can also be somewhat of a disadvantage. All pressure gates tend to leave undesirable pressure marks on the walls. This disadvantage can be eliminated by purchasing wall savers for pressure gates and fitting them between the gate and the walls.
The gate gives enough room to pass through, so the size of adults in your home is irrelevant to your choice of purchasing this gate. The gate has a child-proof safety latch, so your baby will never be able to open the baby gate on his own.
There are perhaps no baby gates that outdo the North States baby gate in quality and performance, though some may match it. Gates such as the Summer Infant Decorative Wood might be the same in material quality and durability, but the room it gives for passing through is compromised. The Cardinal Baby Gate might be the same in quality and give more passing room than this one, but it is hardware mounted, making it difficult to install.
The only reason to choose other baby gates over this one is if you have special custom needs or if you are crunched on the budget. Gates by Regalo are good suggestions for less-expensive gates, though they make a handful of compromises in quality.
Unless your budget is below what the North States Baby gate asks in price, which is quite reasonable, this is the best baby gate out there to buy.
