  • nope we have a plastic gate from walmart.. the holes are circles... maybe get a new gate or try and file the sharp point down with a finger nail file..

  • You could try a different gate, or you could buy one of those doors that swing open or closed in half(sorry i can't think of the name), and leave the bottom part of the door closed and locked, and the top half open. Good luck.

  • Try a different gate. I have a wood one and have never been hurt by it. Maybe it's jsut a bad gate or worn or broken somewhere?
