Anyone know about baby gates?

I need to buy a couple to keep my beagle in the kitchen when I'm not home. He's being a bad boy.

One of my openings is 52" wide. So I'll need to buy an extra wide gate or buy a regular gate and purchase additional extensions.

My question is if I buy a regular gate, will several extensions connect together to allow me to reach my desired length? Or will the gate only allow 1 extension on either side? Some of the gates I'm finding won't be the right length even with 2 extensions (1 on either side.) So I was wondering if they connect together - like 3 at a time. Hope this makes sense.

tia!

Feom what I remember, no they wouldn't connect. The longest gates get mounted to the wall but there are expandable ones. Babies R Us probably has what you need.

If youre serious about it I would make a couple wood extensions to fill up the space so that it'll reach. You only need a saw, nails or wood glue, and removable caulk (to make it sturdy against wall and floor, so you don't have to put any nails into your wall).

Yeah I guess that could have been an option. I found exactly what I needed at Walmart.com though. A bit pricey but I figure if I'm ever to breed myself, they'll be multifunctional.

Thanks .

Not to sound like a snot, but I want a 'pretty one' lol. I have one similar to the one you suggested blocking the doorway to the room where my cats' food and litter boxes are. I hate the damn thing because I have to step over it (it's tall) to get in the room or take it down completely. Having the swinging gates would be so much easier.................................and prettier .

Ah. I supplied that Google link less for WHERE to find them and more for what is available.

I'd say that you are looking specifically for a modular baby or pet gate/fence. I've seen some that extend across an entire room.

The answer to your question in the OP is: it depends on the way the manufacturer intended for them to be used. Some you can keep adding modules until it's 9' wide:

Wood Panel Pet Gates - Pet Classics™

others you can't.

Go to hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope not. I have one already up blocking him from getting in the 'cat room,' where I keep their food, water and litter boxes. He goes nuts when I feed them, trying to get in there but he's never succeeded.
