EDITOR’S NOTE: Aldi sold a gate like this again in October of 2022 for the same price of $29.99, with a 30.9″ height and adjustable width: 29.73″ x 32.48″ (35.24″–37.99″ wide with included extension).
If you have young children, or if you have dogs or other pets, it’s possible you may need a gate to keep them out of certain rooms or parts of your home.
In my house, there is no door to block access to the basement stairs, so when my children were little, we installed a walk-through safety gate or baby gate that was screwed into the wall at the top of the stairs to prevent falls. It was one of the most important baby items we purchased, ranking up there with a crib, car seat, and stroller. We used additional baby gates at different times to block access to our home office and other parts of the house.
I also have friends who use safety gates to keep their dogs out of certain rooms (the formal living room or the bedrooms, for example). Or, people might use gates to keep their dogs in a specific room such as the kitchen when no one else is at home.
Whatever you need a gate for, Aldi occasionally sells them. Sometimes Aldi sells safety gates alongside baby and toddler products such as potty seats, board books, and plastic character dishes. At other times, Aldi will stock safety gates with pet accessories such as beds, cat playhouses, pet sweaters, dog chew toys, and more.
What We Know:
The Little Journey Safety Gate (Product Code: 55827) cost $29.99 at the time of publication. That’s a lot less than other walk-through safety gates from retailers such as Amazon.
If you miss out on purchasing the gate this time around, Aldi occasionally sells other gates like this. In 2019, Aldi sold a Little Journey Walk-Through Safety Gate that looks practically identical to this year’s model and had the same price of $29.99. Aldi also has sold a Hauck Safety Gate for $19.99 in 2021, 2020, and 2019.
This particular gate is sold under the Aldi Little Journey private label, which encompasses baby and children’s products at Aldi, including diapers, baby wipes, formula, baby and toddler food and snacks, and more.
Here’s more information about the safety gate, according to Aldi:
- Gate is pressure mounted; no tools needed for installation
- Door swings both ways and automatically closes
Because this gate is pressure mounted, you should not place it at the top of a stairway. In that case, you’ll want a gate that is screwed securely into the wall in order to prevent falls. However, this gate would work in other parts of the home if you’re looking to block access to certain rooms.
The 2019 Little Journey Safety Gate had a one-year warranty, so it’s possible the 2022 model may come with a warranty as well, but Aldi has not yet shared that information.
What We Don’t Know:
We haven’t bought the Little Journey Safety Gate, so we don’t know how sturdy it is or how easy it is to install and use. We write open threads so readers can share about their experiences with products.
