My wife and I have a little one on the move, so a baby gate was needed. I wanted something that would swing both ways with a fast and easy latch, so this is what I came up with. I couldn’t seem to find a latch that was quite what I was looking for so, I made my own spring loaded pin latch.

So far it works great. Although I am a little disappointed in the amount of “play” in the hinges I bought. The top of gate pulls away from the wall mount when closed due to the expansion within the hinges.

Nice job on that gate. it is good to keep the little ones safe especially around the stairs where they have no idea of the danger
