By limiting access to unsafe outdoor areas or dangerous places in the house such as staircases, the Retract-A-Gate helps keep dogs, cats, and children out of harm’s way. The retractable safety gate, which automatically rewinds, can easily be moved from location to location, as long as homeowners equip another area with an Additional Wall Bracket Kit. The Retract-A-Gate can be operated easily by pulling its mesh screen across an opening, hooking it into position, and locking it into place via a child-resistant, push-and-turn knob.
