What models and extensions do you recommend for purchase for a 62"opening for an auto close gate?

The largest auto close gate that we have available is 47.5 inches wide. We do not have anything that would fit in a 62" opening that has the auto close feature. Thank you

All KidCo gates are intended for indoor use as they are metal and will rust. If you choose to use outdoors please contact your local hardware store for rust proofing recommendations for your area. thank you,

I am trying to install this on my stairway, and can't seem to get the handle to sit properly. The door swings easily and auto-closes without issue, but the handle sits slightly too high and so the latch does not engage. How do I fix this?

Asked by: chilscher
Good day. Please contact our customer care department at 800.553.5529 so we can assist in some final adjustments to installation that may be needed. Thank you.

auto-close-gateway is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I got this gate 6 months ago to use when my Granddaughter is over. It is Easy to install and use. No more jumping over gates... The swing motion of the door make going thru the gate a breeze. Strong, sturdy and easy to use, it have it all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Auto Close Feature I was looking for a gate that would close behind me when my hands are full and this was the perfect solution. It was easy to install in the doorway to the kitchen. Don't be concerned that there is a "gap" between gate and frame when you take it out of box. It is supposed to be like this and the gap closes as tighten the screws and pressure is applied in the door frame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful product and company! I have two of these gates one at each end of my stairs. I used the optional hardware provided for added protection. After a while of extended use I noticed some slight cracking of a portion of the gates. I contacted KidCo customer service and was sent replacements very quickly!
