FAQ - General


The Retract-A-Gate baby gate is "JPMA Certified"; what does that mean?

The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, Inc. (JPMA) is a national trade organization chartered in 1962 that is dedicated to educating consumers on the safe use and selection of juvenile products.

JPMA developed an extensive Certification Program to help guide consumers toward purchasing juvenile products that are built with safety in mind.

To become JPMA Certified, Retract-A-Gate was professionally tested by an independent testing facility for compliance with the specific American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM) standards.

Once a product passes the tests, JPMA allows the manufacturer to label it with the JPMA Certified Seal.

Our baby gates are re-tested every year to maintain their certification. Additionally, Retract-A-Gate also exceeds the Canadian Safety Standards for baby gates.
