Custom Fit Auto Close HearthGate


This one-of-a-kind gate system fits a standard 6’ hearth and most BBQ grills providing protection from the hot surfaces and flames of in-use fireplaces, accessing gas starter keys, sharp edges, hard corners and dirty logs. The extra wide door section can be placed anywhere in the layout giving you access where needed.  Magnet lock technology draws door to the closed position and locks automatically.  Each section is hinged with a rotating joint to allow for custom set up.  Quick release hardware allows for easy removal when needed.  Optional extensions are available in 9” and 24” sections allowing for a custom fit.  The system can be connected to use around wood burning stoves or to create a freestanding play area. (We recommend at least 2 additional sections for free standing play area).

How is this mounted to the wall? Does this gate have to be screwed in? We need this for a winter seasonal rental and do not want to damage the wall.

Asked by: Mamabird
The KidCo G3100 Hearth Gate is a wall mounted gate. There are small brackets at the top and bottom on each side. The Gate can be removed leaving the bracket attached to the wall. Please visit our website to view the User Guide. Thank you,

Why does this gate not come in the color white? It is the length that I need without buying extra extensions like the configurating gate I'd have to buy 2 extra extensions that would go over my price range!

Looking for a gate to surround the fireplace .The harsh is 78'' wide and 16''deep. What configuration of parts do we need  ?

Asked by: gene
The KidCo G3100 Hearth Gate Door Section is 30 inches and the 4 Side Sections are 24 inches each. The front of your hearth would require the 30 inch door section and (2) 24 inch side sections. Note: The gate must be 24 inches away from the heat source on all sides. Please re-measure to include 24 inch from hearth on all sides. If your hearth fits this requirement you can use the other (2) 24 inch sections on each side. If you need more length - you can add G4301 9 inch or G4311 24 inch optional extensions to customize size. Thank you,

Does the 3100 have rubber feet to keep it from sliding around?

Asked by: Nellie
Yes, there is a rubber pad on the bottom of the hinges. The G3100 Hearth gate is intended to be used in a "U" shape. Please make sure gate configuration has a few angles as this will also help stability. thank you,

I currently have this gate for around my fireplace, but will no longer need it there. Can this gate be recommended for the top of the stairs as well?

Asked by: megs
Although this gate can be used to block a stairway, for top of stair safety, a hardware mount gate should be used. The KidCo Safeway gate is a recommended top of stair baby safety gate. Features include a stop pin to prevent gate from swinging over the open staircase and quick release hardware for when needed. We include a template to assist with mounting. Please note, when installing a top of stair safety gate, hardware needs to be mounted into a solid surface.

custom-fit-auto-close-hearthgate is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Irregular Shaped Areas! We had the opportunity to use and review the KidCo Hearthgate and really like it a lot, especially with the extensions that allow you to convert it to a freestanding play area. It's easy to install and adjust to fit a variety of spaces. Check out full video review below! (Disclosure: Although we received product for review, TopDaddies was not financially compensated for these reviews)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only gates I use I have three of these up in our house. I have a lot of wide entries and these were great to make fit. I also like how you could adjust the pieces that attach to the walls. We didn't want to drill in our baseboards so this alleviated that problem. My old recommendation is that if you have wood floors, get pads to but on the bottom of the four circles that touch the floor. It's easy to do and keeps it from scratching the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exactly what we needed! We have a large opening we needed to enclose to keep our dog from wandering the house. The Kidco hearth gate does the job. It looks great and is exactly as advertised. The actual overall length is slightly more than 11 feet and it was easy to adjust to our dimensions. Easy to assemble and install too,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problem Solved Just installed this gate and it not only keeps the kids away from the hot fireplace, but protects them from the sharp edges of the hearth. Brilliant idea.
