Auto-Close SafeGate

Pressure mounted gate



Convenience AND Safety. Don’t be fooled. Not all auto-close gates are created equal. The Qdos Auto-Close SafeGate meets the toughest European Safety Standards as well as the US and Canadian Standards. Just release the opened door and it automatically closes and latches into a locked positon behind you. For added peace of mind, Qdos added the At-A-Glance Indicator™ so you can confirm with a quick glance that the gate is securely locked.

If a gate is not installed properly, it’s not safe. Qdos makes it easy to make sure your gate is installed properly and securely – the first time. QRF Spindles™ make installation over quarter round moldings a breeze, and the included magnetic level and AccuInstall Indicators™ simplify the process. It’s quickly becoming the benchmark for auto-close gates.

Qdos Advantages

This strong and sturdy Qdos gate meets the very tough requirements of the European Safety Standards, as well as the US and Canadian Safety Standards. Many other gates on the US and Canadian markets would not be able to withstand European testing.
After walking through the Auto-Close gate the spring loaded hinge will quickly and safely close and lock the gate behind you. You can hear it click into place and you can see the green At-A-Glace Indicator™ showing a secure closure.
Quarter round moldings normally make proper installation of a pressure mount gate almost impossible, as the lower spindles hit the rounded surface of the quarter round molding and tend to slip. Our unique QRF Spindle™ goes over the quarter round and allows for a perfect installation allowing the gate to be flush with the floor, unlike other gates.
The AccuInstall Indicators™ make installation easy and most importantly provide peace of mind that the gate has been installed correctly. The magnetic level helps you keep the gate perfectly positioned during installation.
The wide door on the Auto-Close gate automatically closes and the At-A-Glance Indicator™ on the handle confirms that the gate is properly locked and secure.
The SecureHold™ adhesive wall cups are necessary to use with the Auto-Close SafeGate in order to get a secure installation. Installing any pressure mount gate without wall cups is simply not safe, regardless of gate model or location. Adhesive only installation is only recommended for installation in a painted door frame, framed opening or painted and smooth drywall. In any other situation you must also use the included screws.
All pressure mount gates have a connecting bottom rail that creates a tripping hazard, especially at night. To help minimize this hazard, we have the NiteSafe™ Glow in the Dark strip illuminating the bottom rail. Qdos recommends never using any pressure mount gate at the top of the stairs.
This gate will fit openings from 30” up to 48” (76 - 122 cm) by the addition of up to 6 extensions. Two extensions are included and additional ones are available as accessories.
Pressure mount gates have a bar that runs across the bottom. This is a tripping hazard, we recommend never using ANY pressure mounted gate at the TOP of the stairs for this reason.
The wide 22.75” (58 cm) door makes passing through the gate a breeze carrying children, groceries or laundry.

Auto-Close SafeGate FAQs

Yes, it can. It can also be used in an opening or hallway, but as it is a pressure mount gate it cannot be used at the top of the stairs.
The Auto-Close gate expands to cover an opening between 30” and 37” when using the two provided extensions. If you need to cover a wider distance, you can buy up to four additional SafeGate Extensions for a span of up to 48”.
Yes. The bottom spindles can be adjusted independently of the top spindles, so by making the bottom spindles shorter this will in most cases accommodate the thickness of the baseboard. In some situations, even with the gate centered in the opening, the space between the gate and the wall ends up being more than 2.5” (65 mm). In those situations, it’s necessary to add an extension.
The Qdos Stair Mounting Kit is all you need. This kit creates a flat surface to your banister without the use of screws. Once the kit in installed, follow the installation directions of the Auto-Close gate and you are all set.
Great question. The Auto-Close gate comes with four round spindles and two QRF™ (Quarter Round Friendly) spindles. The QRF™ spindles allow a perfect installation over a quarter round molding, which is not possible with standard round spindle heads.
Yes, included with your gate is a One-Way Stop that can easily be installed.
"Magic", but seriously after you walk through the gate a spring automatically swings the gate door back and a powerful magnet locks the gate in the closed position.
We have added an At-A-Glance Lock Indicator™ to the handle. The At-A-Glance Lock Indicator™ turns green when the gate is securely locked.
No, this is an indoor only gate.
