More Info
The Pet Gate can be mounted in different ways to suit your needs.

Conventional Pressure Mounting
Maximum opening size for easy installation and ability to move the gate as needed is 40".

  1. Place gate on floor in opening.
  2. Expand gate so that all four Side Bumpers are in contact with the opening sides.
  3. Rotate the Locking Handle and insert the Handle Tab into the Slot that gives enough tension to secure the gate. If properly locked, the Handle Tab should click into position in the Locking Slot.
To release the Locking Handle:
  1. Press inward (toward the Gate) with your thumb on the top portion of the Latch while twisting outward (away from the Gate).
  2. Disengage Latch from Locking Slot by pulling gently away from the Gate.

Pressure Mounting In Opening Using Door Sockets
Effective for openings over 40" wide or where additional security is needed.
Always use Tape Pads when mounting Sockets. NOTE: Foam Tape may leave a residue or damage some wall surfaces when removed. Test area before using on questionable surfaces. To aid bonding, Sockets and surface should be wiped down with water and thoroughly dried before mounting Tape Pads.

  1. Remove four Tape Pads from backing sheet and mount in recessed area of Door Socket.
    1. NOTE: Do not remove protective cover sheet from Tape Pads at this time.
  2. Locate doorway or opening where Gate is to be installed.
  3. Remove protective cover sheet from one Door Socket and, with the "U" upright, press onto door jamb or opening side.
    1. NOTE: Make sure the bottom of the Door Socket is at least 2-3/4" and not more than 4" above the floor. Make sure the area is flat, clean, and free from dirt, oil, etc. before pressing in place.
  4. Mount second Door Socket on opposite side of door jamb or opening.
    1. NOTE: Maintain the same distance from the floor as the Door Socket mounted in step #3.
  5. Mount remaining two Door Sockets 20" above (measured from bottom of Sockets) Door Sockets #1 and #2.
  6. If desired, screws may also be used (in addition to tape) for added security. Simply drill 1/16" pilot holes (through the holes in the Door Sockets into the door jamb or opening) and install a #6 x 5/8" screw into each hole.
  7. With Locking Handle in unlocked position, place Bumpers on one side of Gate into Door Sockets on one side of opening.
  8. Extend Gate so that the remaining two Bumpers fit into Door Sockets on opposite side of doorway.
  9. Rotate Locking Handle into first locking position so the gate fits snugly in Door Sockets.

To release the Locking Handle:

  1. Press inward (toward the Gate) with your thumb on the top portion of the Latch while twisting outward (away from the Gate).
  2. Disengage Latch from Locking Slot by pulling gently away from the Gate.

Pressure Mounting Between Wrought Iron Railings or Railing and Wall
For mounting to a wrought iron railing, Gate must be mounted to a corner post of the railing and railing must be securely fastened to the floor.

  1. Measure size of rail post. Rail Sockets will fit 1", 1-1/8", and 1-1/4" rail posts.
    1. For 1" rail posts, Rail Sockets can be used as is.
    2. For 1-1/8" rail posts, break off Pegs on one side of Rail Sockets.
    3. For 1-1/4" rail posts, break off Pegs on all four sides of Rail Sockets.
      1. NOTE: After breaking off Pegs, it may be necessary to file away any burs so mounting surface is flat.
  2. Remove four Tape Pads from backing sheet and mount Pads in recessed area of Rail Sockets or Door Sockets.
  3. Remove protective cover sheet from one Rail Socket and, with the "U" upright, press onto corner post of wrought iron railing at least 2-3/4" and not more than 4" above the floor.
  4. On same corner post, mount the second Rail Socket 20" above Socket (measure from bottom of first Socket).
  5. If opposite mounting surface is another rail post, on opposite rail post mount Rail Sockets #3 and #4 by repeating steps #3 and #4 above.
  6. If opposite mounting surface is a wall, mount Door Sockets #3 and #4 by following steps #3 and #4 above.
  7. If desired, screws can be used in addition to Tape for added security. Simply drill 1/16" pilot holes (through the holes in the Door Sockets into the door jamb or opening) and install a #6 x 5/8" screw into each hole.

To release the Locking Handle:

  1. Press inward (toward the Gate) with your thumb on the top portion of the Latch while twisting outward (away from the Gate).
  2. Disengage Latch from Locking Slot by pulling gently away from the Gate.

Hardware Mounting with Included Hinges

Do not mount Gate Hinges into sheetrock or plaster. Included hardware is for use in solid materials only, such as wood or metal.

  1. Slide each of the two Gate Hinges onto the chosen hinge side of the Gate. Fasten lower Hinge with a #6 x 5/8" screw. Do not fasten top Hinge at this time.
  2. Fasten the two Casement Hinges to the opening using four #6 x 5/8" screws.
    1. First drill 5/16" pilot holes in a straight vertical line at the 3-3/4", 4-1/2", 22-5/8", and 23-3/8" marks above the floor.
  3. Place the bottom Gate Hinge onto the bottom Casement Hinge.
    1. The Gate can be mounted to swing in either direction. Simply mount the Casement Hinge into either of the two Gate Hinge holes. The hole in which the Gate Hinge is mounted is the direction the Gate will swing.
  4. Remove two Tape Pads and mount the Pads in the recessed area of the Door Socket (or Rail Socket if opposite side is a wrought iron railing).
  5. Remove the protective cover sheet from the Tape Pad of one Door Socket (or Rail Socket) and, with the "U" upright, press onto the opening or door jamb 3" above the floor, after measuring from the bottom of the Door Socket to the floor.
  6. Mount the second Door (or Rail) Socket 23" from the floor.
  7. If desired, screws can be used in addition to Tape for added security. Simply drill 1/16" pilot holes (through the holes in the Door Sockets into the door jamb or opening) and install a #6 x 5/8" screw into each hole.
  8. Put the Locking Handle into Unlocked position.
  9. Extend the Gate to fit into the Sockets.
  10. Rotate the Locking Handle and insert Handle Tab into the Slot that gives enough tension to secure the gate. Handle Tab should click into place.
