Custom Fit Auto Close ConfigureGate ®


The Auto Close ConfigureGateTM provides maximum safety for use in any extra wide or odd shaped area.  All joints rotate; setting individual sections to the ideal angle, and then easily lock in place for a secure attachment.  The unique handle design on the extra wide door applies Magnet-Lock Technology, a dual magnet design that automatically draws the door closed and guarantees it locks each and every time!  The ConfigureGate also has a hold open feature, that suspends the auto close function until the door is pushed closed.  The original 3 piece ConfigureGate will fit an 84” opening.  An unlimited number of additional 9” and 24” sections can be added to fit any desired length or to make a freestanding enclosure.  Additional sections sold separately.

The KidCo Configure Gate comes with 2 different size screws (3/4 inch or 1 3/8 inch) depending on if you are screwing into wood or through drywall into a stud. Thank you,

I want to mainly use the gate in a closed circular form. I will be using it in this form until she is 2 if I buy this product. will she be able to stand up against the gate without it falling or moving since it will not be mounted to anything

Asked by: meisha
Our gates are intended for children 0-24 months. If the gate is placed on a hard surface it may move since it is not screwed in and is free standing. I would recommend using on carpeting to avoid movement. thank you,

We have a 65 inch staircase opening that we need to close off. Would the Configurate work in that size opening?

Asked by: zhanna

Is the gate safe for use at the top and bottom of a staircase?

Asked by: juliad
We don't recommend using the Configure gate at the top of the stairs. Only use the Configure Gate near a stairway if you can set the door at least 24 inches away from the stair. The door has a bar on the bottom that you need to step over and the door swings in both directions so you do not want the gate to open over the stair. Thank you,

I have one of your gates and it works great, I want to get a couple of more, but the doorways are 48", and 44". If i get the big one 84" how do I shrink it down to fit a 4' doorway? Do I cut it? The instructions on my big gate didn't mention cutting?

Asked by: Greg
You may use only a few panels of the KidCo Configure Gate and angle to fit your opening. Or you can configure into a U shape. Please do not cut panels as this will compromise the integrity of the gate. Please visit our website www.kidco.com to view all of our gates to find one that may work better in the doorways. Or call KidCo Customer Care 800-553-5529 Thank you,

Is there any reason the Autoclose Configure Gate system can't be used around a fireplace? I know the HearthGate system is available for purchase, but we have easy access to the ConfigureGate system and swear by it! Please let me know...thanks!

Asked by: Deborah
You can use the Configure Gate around a fireplace. Please make sure system is 24 inches away from heat source on all sides. Thank you,

custom-fit-auto-close-configuregate is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from :) I just installed this gate and am delighted with how well it works. It was not simple to install, but I was able to figure it out with very little experience with this kind of thing. The biggest challenge was buying screws for drywall. It feels very solid; I have no concerns about a toddler moving it. The auto-close and stay-open features of this gate are great. The configurability made it easy to set it up just the way I wanted it. The gate is easy to operate. Since I've only had it up for a few hours, I can't comment on its durability, but it certainly feels solid. I looked at a lot of different gates before buying this one. I'm very happy with it. KidCo clearly paid careful attention to the design of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problem Solver We have a staircase that has railings on both sides and does not tie into a wall anywhere. The ConfigureGate is a life saver at the bottom of the stairs since it can enclose the area without our little guy able to get up the stairs. No other gate we saw at the store would do this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Gate We purchased this gate to separate our kids' play area from our office in the basement. Our children are 3 and 5 and can be kind of rough. The gate has withstand their pushing and pulling and leaning even though it's mounted to the wall. It has a little give and is somewhat flexible. Overall it's served it's purpose and it easily detaches from the wall if you no longer need to use it, or just for temporary purposes. Also, Kid Co's customer service is OUTSTANDING. When we had to remove the gate, I did not properly unlock the extensions and broke one of the locking mechanism. I spoke to a Laura in customer service and explained my problem. She quickly assessed the problem and determined we needed a whole new extension because of the way in which the break occurred. She shipped out the new part and our gate was backup in no time. We really appreciated the understanding and accommodation made, so that we could continue to use this good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Gate Ever Purchased This is the best safety gate I've ever purchased, and I have several different cheaper ones all over the house that don't work. I should have just bought more of these. It was easy to install, it's durable and is safe with the auto close; love it. I'm buying 2 more right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love. It. Have had it installed a couple weeks ago, probably a few weeks too late. I should have ordered it earlier! Perfect for our space.
