    Default Baby gate recommendations please.

    I'm needing some baby gates to fence off our living room. The gap is about 3m wide so anyine know of any gates that can clip together? Thanks

    There are a few manufacturers that make the longer gates/playpens.
    We have a Lindam one that fences off a considerable gap - I think there are six panels, one of which is a gate, and it can be shortened and also attached properly to the wall.

    If you want, you could try asking the CHOICE experts we have at the moment - they're answering anything about baby products and safety.

    We have a baby pen that extends to a 3.6m long fence and gate. It's brilliant but I can't remember the name of it. We have it fencing an area 3.4 long. And you can put the gate where you like so we aimed for the middle. I'll try remember the name.

    I pulled apart an old futon base and used that...they were perfect.

    Okay ours is a Baby Dan Playpen. It can be a playpen or a fence and comes with wall mounts (we bought ours second hand so made our own wall mounts). It also comes with a large play mat.

    I've tried 6 times to upload a photo of our fence and the app keeps crashing so I will PM you a pic. So you can see it in a house.

    Edit: I can't PM you? If you would like to see the photo just try and pm me and I'll reply

    It's a strong fence, never buckled or faltered. I love ours.
