Sturdy Construction, Quick Installation

We understand that setting up a pet gate needs to be simple, if it takes more than few minutes to set up, it’s not even worth it. To keep things moving, the Lil Tuffy® expandable gate features a lock and screw system to create the perfect pressure on the gate. To set the gate, grab both sides and expand to the desire width, lift the locking pin, moving it into place and securing it the open hole. Now just twist the plastic knob to adjust the pressure until the gate is safely secured against the wall.

Packable, Portable, Convenient

Standing just 18” tall, the Lil Tuffy® Expandable Pet Gate is the perfect height for keeping smaller pets contained, while allowing you to easily step over the gate. Featuring a 9” x 9” small pet door, the gate makes it easy to let your pooch through without taking the gate down every time.

If you do need to take your gate down, the gate is lightweight, compact, portable, and stows flat – making it easy to shove in your closet before guests arrive or pack along when traveling with your pets.
